The Apple Core

As a seasoned poker player will tell you: know when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em.

If you don’t posses a natural immunity to a disabling disorder, then the remedy resides in building up resistance under controlled exposure—an inoculation. Consequently, the most direct way to get around rejection is to go through it with a positive mindset along the way.

Let’s be clear, thinking positive thoughts is admirable, but it is a temporary bandage at best if you are secretly harboring doubt and fear in lieu of awareness.

What is the point of polishing an apple that is rotting from the inside out?

America Doublespeak

george orwell
George Orwell

Artists who want nothing to do with politics will be among the first to be either censored or executed by a tyrannical regime.

Beware the Ides of March:

When I first read Orwell’s 1984 vision of a dystopian future where the sociopathic socialists ruled through a constant and fabricated state of war, I thought it could happen here at any moment. Most at the time did not agree with me, saying that it’s paranoia.

In Orwell’s prescient mind the government ruled the brainwashed citizens by controlling the media, doublespeak, up was down and good was bad, and where the Ministry of Love dispensed fear, torture, and death. And the Obama regime labels illegal immigrants as Americans in waiting.

Do we not have this precisely going on in America today? Can’t say Muslim terrorist and politically correct defaces the language and meaning. Now, Obama and his minions want to control the Internet by way of a corrupt FCC that will forever take away our press and information freedoms with a pen. The leftists lie about their charitable motives.

When the socialist destroyers of ingenuity control the Internet medium they will also control content, which is already happening with a Pravda mainstream press complicit in lying for Obama at each turn.

Other than Impeach Obama now, I don’t know how to stop the assault. I do know that being informed is at least the first step, as the founding fathers had envisioned.

Art and Politics

Darwin Redux

In some respects, even art can’t escape the pulls of politics, whether to the left or the right. In Nazi Germany the dear Führer decreed that certain art was decadent art, which was verboten. And he should know, as he was a failed art student.

Today, many of the art institutions, museums, galleries, and grant giving organizations are populated mostly by wantonly ignorant leftist Marxists who would not know art from cream cheese. The powers with money dictate what sort of ‘art’ should be made—which is ultimately a trap for the artist who complies. This does not prevent the true artist from listening to a higher power. 

One of the first actions of a Marxist or other fascist regime is to control the images that the people see. But, this can also be accomplished with language, as in the insidious mind control device called political correctness—the very illness that is eroding our land this very moment. Lack of awareness by sheeple can quickly transform art for art’s sake to art for the state’s sake. And voila: a totalitarian state is born.

Picasso’s Bull Sculpture

Matador Myth Moon

From my book, An Artist Empowered:

Another example of seeing art in manufactured goods took place in 1943 when Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) reconfigured a bicycle’s handlebars and seat into a Bull’s Head sculpture.

Was this art? Why is it art?

While others may have observed that a bicycle seat and handlebars when properly aligned resembles a bull’s head, it was Picasso, already confident in his work, who had the nerve to assemble the pieces into a whole.

Stop the Coming Civil War: My Savage Truth

Eden Maxwell with Stop the Coming Civil War: My Savage Truth

Stop the Coming Civil War: My Savage Truth by Michael Savage (314 pages, Hardcover Book with notes and bibliography, pub date: 2014)

Stop the Coming Civil War: My Savage Truth is an important … no, an essential call to common sense arms if we are to take back our constitutional republic from the leftists who promote victimhood and class warfare; for years these cultural Marxists have been infiltrating our government and educational system with an acolyte ideology and the final recipe for national suicide called political correctness.

Remember, a government by the people? What happened to that concept? Savage wants to know, don’t you? To the misguided leftists who would control you while redistributing your hard earned money, big government is the answer to everything; to patriotic Americans on the right, big government is the problem.
