Obscurantism, Moonbattery, and Modern Art

Liberal ideology, particularly as it is promulgated by universities, is similar to modern art in that both are manifestations of moonbattery that rely heavily on obscurantism to dupe the gullible. Understand what a useless, pernicious, and contemptible racket modern art is, and you may understand the same regarding the dogma of the prevailing intelligentsia.

Paul Joseph Watson offers some help (the usual language warning applies):

Modern art has made real art all but impossible in the modern world. Modern liberalism is doing the same to anything classical liberals like the Founding Fathers would recognize as liberalism.

Modern Art in Brooklyn Park Resembles Dung Ball

Looks like a job for Waste Management. More modern art has been excreted:

To some, the three-foot-diameter sphere of soil in Brooklyn’s McGolrick Park is a symbol of humanity’s universal roots and identity.

To others, the big brown ball of dirt “looks like a giant turd.”

But it is a meaningful giant turd:

For three years, Manhattan artist Martynka Wawrzyniak collected 30 pounds of soil from over 150 Greenpoint residents and sculpted it into “a collective portrait of the community,” she said.

This was formed into an orb that, as one local noted, looks like something a dung beetle might roll around.

The final result, unveiled last weekend, was plopped inside an elevated, fenced-off enclosure near the park entrance, surrounded by long grass and shrubs.

Now for the good news: the artist funded the project herself. But it still serves as a reminder of why art should not be funded on a coercive basis. Taxpayers have been forced to finance worse.

Other works by the same artist include “Smell Me,” an installation consisting of a space filled with her “bodily aromas.” We can be thankful that Michael Moore hasn’t taken up modern art.

Latest Atrocities in Modern Art

Modern art is a cynical scam, not merely devoid of value, but viciously destructive. Paul Joseph Watson isn’t buying it:

What moonbattery has done to art, it has also been doing to every other avenue of human endeavor. It is a disease that will replace James Madison with Elizabeth Warren as surely as it has replaced Leonardo da Vinci with Cy Twombly.

The State of Modern Art

Now for some cultural enrichment. Straight from the Waterloo Center for the Arts in Waterloo, Iowa, a hairy guy dressed up as Wonder Woman spins around until he falls down. Then he gets up and does it again:

David Thompson provides some background:

“As a queer artist I seek to create a temporal historical rupture,” says Texas-based performance artist Sarah Hill, while describing her – sorry, their – 2014 opus They Wonder. “During the performance,” we’re told, “I repeatedly spin around and around in circles.” The reason being that, as an artist and worker of profundity, Ms Hill is “interested in the continuous action of spinning and getting no-where, falling down and getting back up.”

Practitioners of critical theory can leave the art world alone at this point. That aspect of Western Civilization has already been destroyed. Their energies are more efficiently spent on those that have been infiltrated, corrupted, and corroded, but that have not yet collapsed entirely.

Modern Art Achieves New Extreme of Tastelessness and Absurdity

Art must be more resilient than politics. It only took two centuries for moonbattery to reduce us from James Madison to Barack Hussein Obama. Yet five centuries were required for it to bring us down from Leonardo da Vinci to this:

A New York-based artist has been inviting amorous couples to make creative magic on his canvas by covering themselves in paint and letting their impulses get the better of them.

Here’s how the “artist” Alexander Esguerra got his inspiration:

‘I woke up one morning after a sexual encounter and my normally organized room was a mess,” he told the New York Daily News.

Being much easier than learning how to use a paint brush, the technique is catching on.

Nearly fifty couples have been inspired to sign up for the project.

They cover themselves in non-toxic, water-based paint and set up the canvas on a floor covered in plastic.

Esguerra provides them with the following art lesson:

‘I tell them to take the paint, lay on top of the canvas and pour it on each other. Look in your partner’s eyes and make love as you would normally.’

Any one can take part.

Anyone willing to pay Esguerra $2,500, that is.

‘Sex is basically the great equaliser,’ said Mr Esguerra.

‘You look at these paintings and you can’t tell if the couple was gay or straight or old or young or married or cheating.’

Who says modern art is meaningless? Esguerra is expressing a profound message of moral equivalency, the central pillar of liberal ethics.

Postmodern Family

Social engineers have applied moonbattery to art, reducing it from Rembrandt and da Vinci to postmodern weirdos eating paint and barfing on the canvas. A story from Nebraska demonstrates what happens when moonbattery is applied to create a postmodern family:

When Matthew Eledge and his husband, Elliot Dougherty, told Matthew’s mother, Cecile, that they were planning to start their family, Cecile thought fondly of her own parental journey. She’d loved being pregnant decades earlier with her three now-grown children.

So she became a postmenopausal gestational carrier at age 61 and gave birth to her own granddaughter so that her son and his homosexual paramour could raise the girl.

Obviously, this is not the ideal way to bring a child into the world. But that doesn’t matter. Only the agenda matters. Deconstructing the family is an important part of the agenda.

The media aggressively promotes this sort of grotesquerie, demanding that we regard it as healthy and normal.

Crap Art

The piece of modern art in Brooklyn’s McGolrick Park that closely resembles a giant dung ball may be part of a crap art trend.

Statues that glorify Western Civilization, which we are expected to revile, are far more likely to be torn down than erected these days. This was true even back in 1994, when San Jose put up a bronze statue of the Aztec serpent god Quetzalcoatl in Plaza de Cesar Chavez in the middle of downtown. Write “park god” backward and what does it spell? This.

From the Mercury News last summer:

What San Jose got was … a squat, coiled snake of concrete … that bore an uncanny resemblance to a massive dog dropping.

A memorial to fallen firefighters was moved to make way for the giant dog turd with a snake head on top.

The dog crap statute may offer insight into a more recent story from nearby San Francisco:

A foul odor permeated from a massive bag of human excrement sludge left on a street corner in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district Saturday.

The deposit at the corner of Cedar and Polk was described on San Francisco’s Citizen app as “twenty pounds of feces dumped onto sidewalk.”

Maybe this is just an example of San Francisco continuing along its trajectory. But just in case the bag is a work of art, they ought to deposit it at a museum. It would be a shame for it to go to waste if an NEA grant paid for it.

Majestic Splendor: Rotting Fish Artwork Bursts into Flames

We have explosive art news from the Hayward Gallery in London. “Majestic Splendor” (1991–2018), a famous artwork by South Korean artist Lee Bul, delayed the opening of an exhibit when it burst into flames:

Majestic Splendor is composed of sequin-covered rotting fish. When it was shown in 1997 at New York’s MoMA, it had to be removed as the smell made visitors feel sick. For the Hayward show, the fish were placed in potassium permanganate. Although it is not flammable, the chemical does increase the flammability of other combustible materials. On receiving advice, the gallery decided to withdraw the artwork, but it spontaneously combusted mid-removal. …

Only minimal damage has been caused to the gallery by the exploding fish.

What a relief. Who knows what priceless, irreplaceable products of posturing postmodern moonbattery might have been lost.

Applying Affirmative Action to Art

Art is an important aspect of civilization, so it has been targeted by liberal social engineers for degradation and destruction. First they crippled art with postmodernism. Now they will finish it off with Affirmative Action. Baltimore Museum of Art director Christopher Bedford leads the charge:

[T]he museum is due to sell off seven works from its collection by Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and other 20th-century titans. The proceeds from the sale of these works by white men—a sum that could exceed $12 million—will be used to create a “war chest” to fund future acquisitions of cutting-edge contemporary art, specifically by women and artists of color.

Bedford says the move will be “absolutely transformative” for a collection that has woefully underrepresented non-white artists, and African American artists in particular. It also comes at a “historically significant moment,” he says, “in that the most important artists working today, in my view, are black Americans.”

Why are they important? Because they are black.

The actual artistic merit of the art is irrelevant. Moonbattery is a totalitarian ideology; those who adhere to it must adhere completely by rejecting all other standards of value.

At least this might remind museum-goers to think for themselves. You can’t assume some random splotch of paint must be meaningful or it wouldn’t be hanging in a museum. Maybe it is there for no other reason than because it was created by a member of a favored identity group.

Obama continued to exert his corrosive influence by pushing art in this direction when he chose mediocre but racially correct artists to paint the official portraits of himself and his Bitter Half.

Before long, paintings by Rembrandt and da Vinci will be put out with the trash to make room for finger paintings by transsexual cognitively handicapped one-legged dwarves of sacred African heritage. Thus will museums truly reflect the values of a culture that has allowed itself to be dominated by liberals.

Common Sense Article Counters Extinction Hysteria… in the Washington Post!

The editors must have intended to generate traffic with controversy. A sensible piece by biology professor R. Alexander Pyron actually appeared in the Washington Post:

Mass extinctions periodically wipe out up to 95 percent of all species in one fell swoop; these come every 50 million to 100 million years, and scientists agree that we are now in the middle of the sixth such extinction, this one caused primarily by humans and our effects on animal habitats.

This causes moonbats to shriek that draconian solutions must be imposed to prevent us from encroaching upon the biosphere.

But the impulse to conserve for conservation’s sake has taken on an unthinking, unsupported, unnecessary urgency. Extinction is the engine of evolution, the mechanism by which natural selection prunes the poorly adapted and allows the hardiest to flourish. Species constantly go extinct, and every species that is alive today will one day follow suit. There is no such thing as an “endangered species,” except for all species. The only reason we should conserve biodiversity is for ourselves, to create a stable future for human beings. Yes, we have altered the environment and, in doing so, hurt other species. This seems artificial because we, unlike other life forms, use sentience and agriculture and industry. But we are a part of the biosphere just like every other creature, and our actions are just as volitional, their consequences just as natural. … [U]nless we somehow destroy every living cell on Earth, the sixth extinction will be followed by a recovery, and later a seventh extinction, and so on.

As for global warming hysteria,

The Paris Accords aim to hold the temperature to under two degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels, even though the temperature has been at least eight degrees Celsius warmer within the past 65 million years. Twenty-one thousand years ago, Boston was under an ice sheet a kilometer thick. We are near all-time lows for temperature and sea level; whatever effort we make to maintain the current climate will eventually be overrun by the inexorable forces of space and geology.

That is assuming that tyrannical nonsense like the Paris Accords would have any effect on the temperature or sea levels whatsoever — which I doubt.

Getting back to extinction, Pyron makes some good points:

Within a few million years of the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs, the post-apocalyptic void had been filled by an explosion of diversity — modern mammals, birds and amphibians of all shapes and sizes. …

Conserving biodiversity should not be an end in itself; diversity can even be hazardous to human health.

The only end in itself in the physical realm is humanity.

Humans should feel less shame about molding their environment to suit their survival needs. … If this means fewer dazzling species, fewer unspoiled forests, less untamed wilderness, so be it. They will return in time. The Tree of Life will continue branching, even if we prune it back. The question is: How will we live in the meantime?

The thought crime being committed here is anthropocentrism. To judge by the comments on the article, most WaPo readers are ready to form a lynch mob.

Why Little Havana Is Partying and Authoritarian Moonbats Are Weeping

As progressives continue to weep and gnash their teeth over the death of Fidel Castro, Cuban escapee Humberto Fontova reminds us why there have been such festive parties in Miami’s Little Havana the past few days:

Fidel Castro jailed and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin during the Great Terror. He murdered more Cubans in his first three years in power than Hitler murdered Germans during his first six.

Fidel Castro shattered — through mass-executions, mass-jailings, mass larceny and exile — virtually every family on the island of Cuba. Many opponents of the Castro regime qualify as the longest-suffering political prisoners in modern history, having suffered prison camps, forced labor and torture chambers for a period three times as long in Fidel Castro’s Gulag as Alexander Solzhenitsyn suffered in Stalin’s Gulag.

Fidel Castro and Che Guevara beat ISIS to the game by over half a century. As early as January 1959 they were filming their murders for the media-shock value.

Fidel Castro also came closest of anyone in history to (wantonly) starting a worldwide nuclear war.

In the above process Fidel Castro converted a highly-civilized nation with a higher standard of living than much of Europe and swamped with immigrants into a slum/sewer ravaged by tropical diseases and with the highest suicide rate in the Western hemisphere.

Over TWENTY TIMES as many people (and counting) have died trying to escape Castro’s Cuba as died trying to escape East Germany. Yet prior to Castroism Cuba received more immigrants per-capita than almost any nation on earth—more than the U.S. did including the Ellis Island years…

According to the scholars and researchers at the Cuba Archive, the Castro regime’s total death toll–from torture, prison beatings, firing squads, machine gunning of escapees, drownings, etc.–approaches 100,000. Cuba’s population in 1960 was 6.4 million. According to the human rights group Freedom House, 500,000 Cubans (young and old, male and female) have passed through Castro’s prison and forced-labor camps. This puts Fidel Castro political incarceration rate right up there with his hero Stalin’s.

But Justin Trudeau, Colin Kaepernick, Black Lives Matter, and the rest of the moonbat Left have never had a problem with Castro’s lifelong dedication to evil.

If only that evil had died with him. Tragically, the soul-crushing regime he established lives on.

Tell-Tale Hearts Give the Unborn a Voice

Edgar Allan Poe was among the most influential authors of the 19th century. He sowed the seeds of the modern mystery, horror, and science fiction genres. His classic story “The Tell-Tale Heart” may even have inspired pro-life activists in Chile:

A group of Chilean pro-life women marched in front of their government buildings while projecting the heartbeat of their unborn children.

In early October, the Reivindica Feminist Movement started the “Voice of the Heart” protests. With fetal heart monitors strapped around their bellies, pregnant Chilean women marched on Plaza de la Constitución [in Santiago]. …

The women held signs reading: “I’m here. I’m alive. Don’t forget about me even though you can’t see me.” New research from the British Heart Foundation also reveals that preborn babies’ hearts begin beating just 16 days after conception.

Finally, the unborn have a voice — if only it isn’t drowned out by the shrieks of moonbats.

Modern P.C. Family: “Father” Gives Birth, “Mother” Is a Man

Am I trapped in a freak show? A horror movie? Some unusually surreal and disturbing nightmare? Whatever this is, it cannot be reality:

They are the couple who made history last year when the transgender ‘father’ fell pregnant by the trans ‘mother’.

And now, four months after giving birth to their first child, Fernando Machado – who was born a woman – and his partner Diane Rodriguez – who was born a man – have revealed they want to expand their brood.

Horror movie. This is definitely a horror movie.

Most horrible of all is that this grotesque freakishness is being promoted to the hilt by those in charge, with the intent of undermining not only our traditions but our most fundamental institutions, objective scientific reality, and sanity itself.

They have not yet announced the name of the newborn baby – but the 16-week-old is affectionately referred to as Caraote – which means ‘the snail’.

At this point in the weirdness, it is easy to picture the offspring as a 10-pound mollusk that leaves a shimmering trail behind as it crawls.

Actually, the baby is probably a perfectly normal human being. But not for long.

Petition Calls for State Department to Forsake AC, Which Kerry Says Is as Dangerous as ISIS

Petitions are a waste of time in most respects, but at least this one makes a good point. Secretary of State Hanoi John Kerry recently proclaimed that refrigeration and air conditioning — two of America’s greatest contributions to the modern world — are as dangerous as the Islamic State, which has been inspiring massacres around the world, on the grounds that AC and refrigerators make it be too hot outside according to leftist ideology. In light of Kerry’s announcement, a petition has been started at Change.org reading as follows:

WHEREAS, Secretary of State John F. Kerry has suggested that air conditioners are as big a threat as ISIS, and

WHEREAS, it is the duty of our elected and appointed government officials to lead by example,

THEREFORE, we call upon the U.S. Department of State to remove air conditioning from all property that the Department owns, rents, or otherwise employs, including but not limited to embassies, consulates, office buildings, etc., all vehicles owned and/or operated by the Department, and any other property, real or movable, owned, rented, or otherwise employed by the Department.

Surely Hanoi John will not want to continue endangering the planet through the use of air conditioning after he receives the petition.

Trump Floats Partially Defaulting on the National Debt

If Donald Trump is elected president, we won’t have to wait for him to impose his massive tariffs to see the economy collapse. The bottom will fall out the moment he is declared the winner, because the USA will instantly become an economic pariah. Who is going to do business with a country led by someone like this?

One day after assuring Americans he is not running for president “to make things unstable for the country,” the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump, said in a television interview Thursday that he might seek to reduce the national debt by persuading creditors to accept something less than full payment.

Asked whether the United States needed to pay its debts in full, or whether he could negotiate a partial repayment, Mr. Trump told the cable network CNBC, “I would borrow, knowing that if the economy crashed, you could make a deal.”

Running the economy from the White House is simple. It’s just like running a failing casino. When the debts pile up, simply declare bankruptcy, like Trump has done four times.

It would be impossible to overstate the economic significance of Trump’s remarks. Here’s an understatement:

Such remarks by a major presidential candidate have no modern precedent. The United States government is able to borrow money at very low interest rates because Treasury securities are regarded as a safe investment, and any cracks in investor confidence have a long history of costing American taxpayers a lot of money.

Even Trump understands that rising interest rates could be a big problem for a country over $19 trillion in debt. But apparently he has not considered the effects on interest rates of having a president who makes clear that he regards repaying debts as negotiable.

As usual when the grownups react with horror to his latest pronouncement, Trump tried to walk it back — sort of:

Pressed to elaborate on his remarks, Mr. Trump did appear to step back. He said that he was not suggesting a default, but instead that the government could seek to repurchase debt for less than the face value of the securities. The government, in other words, would seek to repay less money than it borrowed.

Uh huh. Partial default.

I don’t think the Chinese will like this any better than the massive tariffs Trump plans to inflict. But off course, Trump and his followers don’t like the demonized Chinese either. Some may even believe that a trade war with our #2 trading partner would somehow benefit the economy.

Grownups want to deal with the debt through decreased spending and increased revenue. Trump would rather offer everyone free ice cream, then when the bill comes due, skip town.

A quick economics lesson for the Donald:

The government runs an annual deficit, so it must borrow to retire existing debt. Any measures that would reduce the value of the existing debt, making it cheaper to repurchase, would increase the cost of issuing new debt. Such a threat also could undermine the stability of global financial markets.

The economic damage caused by our current leadership has been mitigated by the dollar serving as the world’s reserve currency. How long would that last with Trump in the White House?

Modern Liberalism Summed Up in a Paragraph

As the appalling rise of people like Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders demonstrates, there is no longer a meaningful distinction between a liberal and a radical. But there used to be. Harry Jaffa described it in 1978 in How to Think About the American Revolution, as quoted by Power Line:

Liberalism and Radicalism both reject the wisdom of the past, as enshrined in the institutions of the past, or in the morality of the past. They deny the legitimacy to laws, governments, or ways of life which accept the ancient evils of mankind, such as poverty, inequality, and war, as necessary—and therefore as permanent—attributes of the human condition. Political excellence can no longer be measured by the degree to which it ameliorates such evils. The only acceptable goal is their abolition. Liberalism and Radicalism look forward to a state of things in which the means of life, and of the good life, are available to all. They must be available in such a way that the full development of each individual—which is how the good life is defined—is not merely compatible with, but necessary to, the full development of all. Competition between individuals, classes, races, and nations must come to an end. Competition itself is seen as the root of the evils mankind must escape. The good society must be characterized only by cooperation and harmony. The Old Liberalism saw life as a race, in which justice demanded for everyone only a fair or equal chance in the competition. But the New Liberalism sees the race itself as wrong. In every race there can be but one winner, and there must be many losers. Thus the Old Liberalism preserved the inequality of the Few over and against the Many. It demanded the removal of artificial or merely conventional inequalities. But it recognized and demanded the fullest scope for natural inequalities. But the New Liberalism denies natural no less than conventional inequalities. In the Heaven of the New Liberalism, as in that of the Old Theology, all will be rewarded equally. The achievement of the good society is itself the only victory. But this victory is not to be one of man over man, but of mankind over the scourges of mankind. No one in it will taste the bitterness of defeat. No one need say, “I am a loser, but I have no right to complain. I had a fair chance.” The joys of victory will belong to all. Unlike the treasures of the past, the goods of the future will be possessed by all. They will not be diminished or divided by being common. On the contrary, they will for that reason increase and intensify. No one will be a miser—or a Conservative.

Nothing could be more contemptible than to desire a world in which there are no winners or losers because everyone is held at the level of the lowest common denominator through coercion. All effort would be futile; the only point of life would be to cower in the safety of never having your inadequacy exposed.

Such a world will never exist anyway, because no two people have ever been equal. That is why every attempt to impose radical egalitarianism results in the form of tyranny George Orwell called “oligarchical collectivism.”

Why They Want to Take Our Guns, Starting With “Assault Rifles”

What motivates the endless campaign by the Media/Democrat Party to erode our Second Amendment liberties? A clue can be found in the type of weapon they are most intent on taking away — semiautomatic rifles (which the media mendaciously refers to as “assault rifles”). Bob Owens explains in a series of tweets, starting with this question:

The short answer:

Why the particular obsession with banning guns like the all-American rifle, the AR-15? After all, they are rarely used in crimes.

Like semiautomatic variants of the AK-47, the AR-15 is no good for holding up a liquor store, because it is too hard to conceal. However, it is a fine rifle for militia use.

The conclusion is hard to avoid.

Milwaukee Art Museum to Feature Pope Benedict Made Out of Condoms

You might think that Pope Francis spewing neo-Marxist rhetoric and assisting the likes of Barack Obama by throwing the Catholic Church behind the global warming hoax would at least earn the Church a respite from the sacrilegious insults traditionally hurled at Christians by moonbats — or at least you might think that if you don’t know moonbats. Even if progressives are warming up to Francis, they can still luxuriate in their demonic hatred of his predecessor:

Niki Johnson’s portrait of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, fashioned from 17,000 colorful condoms, made news-of-the-weird headlines in countries around the globe two years ago.

Now, that artwork is getting a serious nod. It has been acquired by the Milwaukee Art Museum, where it will be displayed when the museum reopens its permanent collection galleries, which are closed for renovation and a top-to-bottom reorganization.

Johnson’s artwork, called “Eggs Benedict,” was inspired by the former pope’s 2009 comments about condoms while in Africa.

Benedict favored abstinence over condom use as a means to get AIDS under control, a thought crime of the first order from the liberal point of view, which is the only point of view permitted in the art world.

Only if seen from behind is “Eggs Benedict” visibly obscene. From the front, it just looks like more of the mediocre trash we have come to expect of modern art:

Democrat Party and Communist Party USA Continue to Merge

Under the leadership of McConnell and Boehner, you could get the impression that the Republican Party is merging with the Democrat Party. If so, the GOP is following close on the heels of the Communist Party USA:

The chairman of the National Committee of the Communist Party USA has penned a 2,023-word manifesto making the critical point that American Communists are eager to work with the Democratic Party to advance the modern communist agenda and achieve communist goals.

Communist Party chairman John Bachtell published his essay last week at People’s World, a “daily news website of, for and by the 99% and the direct descendant of the Daily Worker.”

“[L]abor and other key social forces are not about to leave the Democratic Party anytime soon,” Bachtell promised. “They still see Democrats as the most realistic electoral vehicle” to fight against perceived class enemies.

The days of anticommunist Democrats like JFK and Scoop Jackson are a fading memory now. Communists have infiltrated and now totally dominate the Democrat Party. If only patriots would do the same to the GOP, before commies beat them to it and take over that party too.

Performing Homosexual Acts With a Different Degenerate Each Day for a Year Is Passed Off as an Artwork

Ever wonder how homosexuals managed to spread AIDS around the world at such alarming speed? Mischa Badasyan provides the answer:

Mischa Badasyan is a 26-year-old performance artist and activist whose next project is turning heads. He has a plan to have sex with someone different, every day, for a year.

That’s the basis of Badasyan’s new project, “Save the Date,” the latest in a line of works that explore modern ideas of sexuality and homosexuality. … The project will begin in September.

Lest you think this is just some pathetic freak crying out to be noticed,

Badasyan’s project asks powerful questions about today’s hook-up culture, particularly within the gay experience, and how that in turn translates to loneliness. Casual, consistent sex is not only an old gay stereotype, but is also easily enabled by apps like Grindr, Scruff or Mister. Badasyan’s performance may seem ludicrous at first, but he’s only pushing an everyday reality to its extremes.

Thanks to the relentless promotion of perversion and degeneracy by the liberal establishment, everyday reality has already been pushed to disgusting extremes. That forces “artists” to delve ever more deeply into self-ridicule to convince themselves they are cutting edge.

Badasyan is well prepared for his adventure:

By meeting up with men in places such as parks, Badasyan will explore what happens to sexual interaction when it occurs in a non-place. It’s an experience he knows about from the time he spent performing in Glasgow, while simultaneously looking for men: “I would go to [the park] every night and have sex with guys … until 5 o’clock [or] 6 o’clock in the morning. And I was always … I felt very bad, I was crying all the time. I am always sad after these kind of meetings.”

Yet we are required to believe that these people are normal, healthy, and even appealing.

So as to share his artwork with the world, Badasyan will “create public performances using photo, video and soundscapes inspired by his experiences.”

No doubt a government grant enables him to spend his time doing this instead of working.
