The Witch Hunt

Political Discussion, Uncategorized

Currently, the Other must reject their personage and their perspective to participate in artistic discussion (like they must do in order to participate in power). Whoever they are, whatever gender, ethnicity, culture, subculture, or other they are, they must put on the jacket, mask or monocle of the white-hetero-male-gaze and see, express, and be ever present in society’s self-reflection. They must see themselves filtered trough the self-portraits of the past and anything that does not fit within the reflective silhouette of these past portraits is a weakness, and is either silenced, purged, or used against one in the witch hunt.

Make no mistake, we are not a society above or beyond ludicrous panic. We still hunt for, sometimes put on trial, but always hang, burn, or drown our witches.
