Make him remove it

By hand.
Defacing the work of others is not art, rabbits.

“Scorning the artist’s efforts, one unimpressed person commented online: “Desecrating historic art is not art“, while another said: “As a medievalist I am deeply shocked that the French authorities can allow such defacement.””
Almost like they’re paid…
“Despite the backlash, artist Varini has remained positive about his work.”
That’s because he’s trolling you.
“He said the circles “perfectly” match the city’s stonework and dismissed locals’ concerns saying their reaction shows they are “deeply attached to their heritage”.
His tongue is deeply attached too.
“In 2013, Varini placed giant geometric shapes across the facades of nine Victorian buildings around Granary Square in King’s Cross, London.”
Kill it with fire.

These people think their “work” is immortal.

I happened to be listening to French jazz while reading this and the contrast is quite funny. These people were outdated in the 1960s. Their “movement” is a zombie, dead but still shuffling.

The art “market” is one major tax dodge.

The issue with a status signal, once it loses value it’s lower than dirt.

It’ll end up in a scrapyard.

Link: Leftism is universal acid

https://charltonteaching.blogspot.co.uk/2015/12/leftism-is-universal-acid.html

Leftism eats away at whatever container it is put in – whether that container be religion, science, education, the legal system, the military or whatever. All these started out carrying a small beaker of Leftism, and ended-up being dissolved into Leftism.

And Leftism really is like acid – it destroys the functionality of all social systems, reduces them to a confluent lagoon of Leftism – but does not thereby unify them….

becoming corrupted into routinely-dishonest, gibbering slogan-mongers.

SJWs Always Lie?

They don’t see it as lying. Cover-ups, twisting, defamation, all for the Greater Good of their Leftism. It’s taqiyya, basically. The truth would harm their cause, like a crusade only “Progress”…

White pill

We should therefore be wary of being ‘too virtuous’ by negative avoidance of action, when this prevents us living fully; since not even trying to live is the worst thing we can do.

Why?

Want of inspiration.

Our role models are blocked from publicity. This is the real Dark Ages. We don’t know their names.

I’m sure the London crime spree has nothing to do with funding and celebration of criminals in music culture.

We have a culture of chaos.

https://charltonteaching.blogspot.co.uk/2015/12/the-genius-famine-in-arts.html

The ‘genius famine’ in art and music has been just as damaging as has the decline of genius in science and technology; and has contibuted to the alienation and demotivation characteristic of modernity.

Think of that Boomer anthem Imagine.
A song about peace ..from a wife beater.

Can structures be emotional vampires?

I would argue yes, since they are mass intention of individuals.

Just don’t ask me for a full list, who has the time?

I think the Renaissance got architecture right – grand, majestic, with a few flourishes.

The medieval is humble but good for smaller purposes. The Victorian is fine for squashed environments.

One upside of deficit spending is that it funnels money into useful academic channels, rarely.

By accident.

These places look like prisons, much like the thought paradigm of postmodernism.

There was a great lecture by a respected architect but I think it was taken down.

That’s been happening to an awful lot of good content recently…..

What should our home look like? is a fundamental question.

Who’s discussing it? Even the bloody appliances! Do you need a toaster that could spy on you?

This is shocking in England, we worship our homes (see “Watching the English”).

How far back do we go?

Are modern artists, con artists?

You be the judge. This has been going on at least a century.

“Critics of modern art will at least applaud the irony. The Tate Gallery has paid ¬£22,300 of public money for a work that is, quite literally, a load of excrement.”

At least they’re not taking the piss.


That’s this one.

21st century. No flying cars, this degeneracy.

Some of it is self-aware in a good way.

“Seeing your ideas live on in the works of others”
If feminism were this witty, I’d be one.

I know that one by experience.

I see you rip-off merchants, and I won’t be blogging (here) forever. I’m getting tired of the meme thing and looking into other arts, one day I’ll submerge from this.
Good luck finding me again to pinch things wholesale when that happens.

 

Video: Snobbery

Snobs can’t judge the content of character to a person, so they must rest on the superficial, the signalled.
All status signallers are snobs.

Snobs are phony intellectuals.

They can’t discern quality, they lack those traits. They judge wealth, and other trappings of reward. They trust a third party opinion (judges, experts, authorities) more than their own and model like a child, from these. It’s mainstream, it’s safe, it’s very Goldilocks to have someone to look down on and someone else to suck up to.

They cannot discriminate quality, so they sneer at ‘discrimination’.

The Middle Class, who think good blood doesn’t matter, because they have none. The new snob, a rejection of blood and acceptance of any identity pretense, however flimsy. They cannot step out from their herd, they cannot be individual and they cannot be creative. They live in permanent fear of rejection. They seek to compete by spotting the creative, but this descended into shock-value politics, an artistic game of chicken. They are the Emperor of no clothes and have nothing. Most are in debt to look rich. They bought no opportunities and a heap of depression and anxieties. If their inheritance legally relied upon legitimacy, they’d quickly care about blood all of a sudden.

The Ikea caste.

The guy drawing attention to his Rolex and bragging about its mechanism doesn’t deserve to be wearing one. He doesn’t realize his target is the people who already know.

America not great but immigrants still attracted? – SJWs Always Lie

Mind cancer typical of Cultural Marxism. Remember, once an idea is in your mind, you can never pluck it out.


Her ancestors had the great societal culture of rice farming and famine, they continue to rip off Western technologies, unable to come up with much themselves. Meritocracy a myth, unless it’s your SAT score. It’s interesting that she describes her own toxic conformity to academic culture. I’m familiar with this.
Liberals hate property rights (r-types are consumers, not producers) and originality (jealousy). Picasso could actually paint, he conned the art market with crap and got a laugh out of it. It started off as one big joke involving a urinal. They were literally taking the piss.


Liberals distort epistemology, mis-perceive or falsely convey the labels of symbology as the symbols they distinguish and deny empiricism or objective fact-testing in definitions. e.g. Geometry is a settled science, not up for debate or opinion. Feelings like Asch’s lines do not change factual definitions. This is peer pressure and brainwashing under the guise of open-mindedness and ego-boosting (her sickly sweet tone of voice, like speaking to a child). Their brains have fallen out. If they hate labels so much, they should quit coming up with trendy new terms for sexuality, because orientation theory is a gigantic Victorian labelling system. If they hate labels so much, they should quit with the ad hominem: like Hitler, literally Hitler, bigoted, sexist, racist, phobic etc. Or maybe the purpose of language is communication and that requires labels, rather than crazed gesticulation? She likes consensus and conformity, but not the consensus of what a shape is, or the conformity of shapes to objective rules? ~cuckoo noise sounds~


Liars. Not even liberal. I love the part where she says she doesn’t want to dominate the conversation, even though it’s her opinion or you’re wrong, but all opinion counts and also, there is no such thing as truth, in full postmodern trash, so nobody can technically have an opinion regardless.
Cognitive dissonance doesn’t apply to idiots. They don’t flag these as errors.
PC lies by filling the air with nonsense words and hoping you’ll be distracted long enough they can get power over you.


“top-down?” you mean teaching? and that isn’t what top-down means, it’s a processing term based on neuroscience and computer metaphors
Teachers not important in colleges? Really? Authority figures bad? Why are you paid so much?
“Who gets to judge?”
…Experts. People with the facts. Bloody Hell.

Top kek comment: “Wouldn’t this reduce art to propaganda, like Socialist Realism was?”
In one, son.
Also “Bombastic nonsense. Epistemology has nothing to do with politics; sjws are trying to look cleverer than their content normally allows by appropriating philosophical terminology.”
Stealing. The term is stealing.

Philosophy and science are apolitical because they align with the brutal, unvarnished, inconvenient truth, not the specific groups of people with vested interests.

Critical theory is a nag. A whiner. All it does is complain, it cannot create anything new. It attacks everything but in failing to have positive assertions, it is impossible to falsify itself. It is purely destructive and intends to divide people and sweep up power in the chaos. These people can’t come up with new words at least, they must pinch those from other topics and abuse them.
