Chaining Air

Certainly, cultural settings may be manipulated and expression held in check.

This is always done in the attempt to confine expression to narrow, "acceptable" limits.

And it always fails.

The expectation that somehow "reality" will bend to one's will is ever absurd.

It is fascinating how those who find certain events, outcomes, and effects incomprehensibly strange and complex are unable to take the simple step of viewing these from a clear perspective.  To such minds, this implies "philosophy", and can thus be neither understood nor trusted.

Such blind ignorance is fatal to culture, the arts, and social constructs.  It is often fatal, period.

False appearances lead to falsified actions.

Neither the individual nor culture at large can withstand the errors of falsity.  Sound judgement is needed to distinguish between reality and unreality. Belief supported by sensory evidence and the critical faculties must resolutely stand against merely clever illusions and fraudulent semantics.

Culture, along with the individual, can not long afford tolerance of any poisonous combination of ignorance and belligerence, whether it finds expression in the arts or in anything else that elevates and values freedom.

Choices and Variations

Observe the sources of quietude and those of chaos.

Consider the effects of culture upon consciousness. Act accordingly.

Watch, Listen, Wait

Reflection. Vision. Expression. These are critical elements of art and life.

The world does not need noise. There is more than enough.

Think quietly, act rightly, and decisively.

A single generation may lose a world to ignorance.  No art can remedy such a loss.

One who cannot comprehend freedom will neither experience it nor deserve its virtues.

One, Another

The artist thinks on personal, individual terms.

Otherwise there is no artist, but merely a facade for the expression of derivative perspectives.
