Maybe you can explain -not in a superficaly way of course- who is to blame for the nazism, the shoah and the second world war ? 

I don't want to spend to much time on this except to say that any student of history must recognize that Adolf Hitler was simply an ambitious man who ended up being the leader of an already well-established movement of German Social Nationalist.  He consolidated his control over the party with systematic murders of other would-be leaders, particularly on the Night of the Long Knives in 1934.

The salience is that sound engineers are simply doing what they are paid to do (it is a job after all), and music industry executives are responding to market pressures becuase their job is to sell records.  Music may be about beauty and emotion, but CD's and other media are for sale.  The goal is to sell, and the product is tailored to achieve that goal. 

If you want preservation of music, go to the Smithsonian.
