Take No for an Answer

There is, in fact, a great disturbance throughout the aesthetic fabric of culture.

See everywhere reflexive acceptance of mediocrity as the norm, and "controversy" as the claim of art. These are no more than contradictory passions, with contradiction expressed as a grasping, illogical lack of self-knowledge. There is nothing to be gained by bland, benighted subjectivity.

Art is a force of experience, and if it cannot be found within the culture, it must be brought forth.
