Why Modern Art is Absolute Crap
This guy articulates what I have been thinking for decades. I think my first tip-off came from Ayn Rand. Something about someone vomiting on a canvas and passing it off as a form of art.
Then there was that thing, about ten years ago, about the shit machine.
About thirty-five years ago, a guy I knew decided he was going to be an artist.
He threw together a series of paintings that looked to me like the creations had been stolen from some first grade classroom.
One of the "paintings" featured a human figure, it was impossible to determine gender, smelling his (or her) own fingers.
The "artist" explained the painting to me. It was a guy smelling his fingers after he had just explored a woman's vagina. And he was savoring the aroma.
The name of the painting was, "An Intimate Moment."
Not being an artist myself, I just accepted what was said.
The funny part came when this guy managed to finagle his collection into an exclusive art show at the Hamilton Public Library. (Where else?)
I started noticing that some of the attendees were taking "A Private Moment," seriously. They started speculating about the "meaning" of this piece of work. It was amazing to hear the various sophisticated opinions that were being rendered, none of which were remotely close to the actual story about a guy sniffing his fingers. "Is that a man? Or a woman?" "What is he doing?"
It was "piss your pants" funny. But I was the only one laughing. These people were taking this stuff seriously.
Paul Joseph Watson does what I can't do in this presentation. He takes words I don't know right out of my mouth. When I try to think up an example of what I think much of modern art consists of, all I can come up with is a photograph of one of my own turds sitting at the bottom of a toilet bowl. But that's not yet "meaningful" enough.
So my thoughts turn to diarrhea.
And just when I think I have done a masterful job of exposing the utter horse-shit that dominates every nook and cranny of the remnants of western culture, along comes Paul Joseph Watson to expose me as a rank amateur.
There has been a lot of talk, lately, about efforts to censor the internet. None of this shocks or alarms me. This is how the world works. But for those who desire to know how the world really works, the desire for knowledge cannot be blocked. Instead of accepting what they are told by the established powers, be it via government controlled "education," government subsidized "news," or government subsidized "entertainment," those stubborn enough to drill, baby, drill, will always end up leading the charge.
Each human being is born with only one brain. Either it is employed as designed, or it becomes useless.
It reminds me of something I once read on a washroom wall:
"If in the end, it is determined, that man will lose his most valuable possession, he will grab his cock, and lose his mind."
