Are we starting to see that perhaps democracy doesn’t work? When votes so close (near the 50%) mark are of course in favour of the majority, yet a large portion of the population (the losing side) are stuck with the decision they have to live with Of course its only temporary But whats the difference in the first place? What does it matter? And what are the alternatives? Anarchy? A personalized, individual, self governed system? You cant please everyone but perhaps (win by) majority isn’t always (the) right (way to go)
Getting back from a talk with robert storr at school… he talked among other things about how brexit and trump are ploys by the russians to divide opinions, polarise and also lose faith in all institutions, in turn destabilising democracy. With the alternative to democracy being fascism. He the went on to say what art and artists should be doing is trying to help bring stability
a bit of back ground…
Storr was reappointed Dean of the Yale School of Art for a second five-year period beginning July 2011. He was the first American commissioner of the Venice Biennale in 2007
A bit heavy.. But what I got from the talk was that the squabbling amongst ourselves about what is and what isnt right… All it does is divides us.
