“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Degenerate Art

Bartok insisted, to his credit, on being part of the Degenerate Art exhibition of the Nazis in 1937. It's in the news as a cache of "degenerate" paintings has been found. (Good slide show)

Lynn Cheney tried to make a list of wrong humanists, post 9/11. Of course me and my buddies all tried to insist that we should be included in that list.
