I still listen to music like I've always did - load up something into the walkman, press play. It's like reading a good book sometimes. Only the walkman has changed, more capacity, better battery life, "transparent" playback sound.

Learning to regulate our desires etc is the biggest contemporary challenge IMO. There has always been crap and ways to lose the forest for the trees, guess it's just easier nowadays? Responsibility is ours alone.

I wouldn't blame the MP3 for anything. Which one is preferable, hearing a LQ version of a good song or not hearing it at all? Back in the day, russians used DIY methods for obtaining LQ copies of European/American music, it was the only way they could get to hear those songs.
