CULTURAL PHILOSOPHY

The arts have been eroded by the triumph of mediocrity and hi-jacked by rampant commercialism for a perverse mailaise of populist dumbing down. There is no high culture or empathy for experiment; no vision or intelligensia. The very soul of art has been pilloried and cauterized from every quarter, atrophying the gift of the magical accident to eclipse our fright of the future and the creative power of infinite immagination to empower us with a new concept of self.
