Against the Wall
Twenty years ago the Berlin wall came tumbling down, mercifully freeing people from a police state psychosis.
There are other walls, invisible structures that are no less destructive to society—and that is mass social conditioning. If you buy into the program, products, and propaganda without looking through the wonderful and unbiased lens of awareness, then you have been co-opted. Or, you many have also built your own wall with the mortar and bricks of questionable belief systems where nothing gets out, or in.
Artists, if you have been doing your work, then you have confronted many walls on your journey. The question is always the same. What did you do about it? Did you step up, or sell out?
Freedom fighters enter the fray with their lives on the line; the true artist can do no less.
