So now we've reached the point where criticizing Hurwitz equates to limiting his freedom of speech? Wow, talk about calling the kettle black.
You know what, Mr. Brahmsianhorn?; do create a video on your channel to criticize Witz; your professionalism with your channel shouldn't limit your freedom of speech on there. I don't mean you shouldn't keep criticizing him on this forum; I just would like to see you being more open with your defiance against Witz in public. That would definitely scare him out of his witz.

With regard to the rest, Hurwitz's failing is he is unable to debate both sides of an argument. He simply repeats his side and acts as if the counter argument doesn't exist. Or, worst of all, he twists the other side into an argument convenient for his side, the common straw man tactic.
It seems that David Hurwitz's goal in life is to prove that what he hears (and doesn't hear) is all that exists. He refuses to even acknowledge that there is another side.
Look at the text on his shirt: "Abnormal is fine. Stupid is not."

in the Classical Period, music explicitly was entertainment for aristocrats, and this attitude persisted into the 19th century to an extent.
It depends on what you mean by "entertainment" though. Whatabout all the Tafelmusik composed before that? Bach wrote that WTC was composed "for the profit and use of musical youth desirous of learning, and especially for the pastime of those already skilled in this study".
And church music (even a cappella stuff) was produced in large quantities even after the Baroque period.
