I begin this with a series of statements of purpose:
1. Art and creativity are not so different from science and rationality. Indeed, they all spring from the same fountain. You can not have one without the other. They all have their beginnings in what Einstein called a “holy curiousity.”
2. Resistance is often not pretty. If you are trying to appease everyone all of the time, if you are trying to create a world where everyone agrees with you, if you are trying to bend the world to your will, you are more than likely not committed to real social and transformational change. The fact of the matter is that often people that are fighting against the status quo must speak and act in terms that are not polite. They must speak and often offend even those that are their friends. But it is important to remember that self-reflection, the ability to recognize that sometimes you are wrong, that you have missed the boat, that you must rethink your thesis and alter it, is key. A transformative politics must be willing to undergo revision.
this is what my life needs right now a revision. what do you do when you have nothing?
