Week 36 9/10/17

It is never the burden of the artist to accept or address cultural failure.

The failure of a culture to thrive and progress is a collective failure, with collective causes, not the failure of the individual. When the consequences of ignorance are groupthink result in the inability to distinguish objective reality from subjective appearances, cultural perspectives are devalued and degraded.

One may as well expect a stone to applaud the subtleties and dynamics of authentic artistic expression.  And the artist will not waste time seeking such things.
