Extra Bitters


  1. Nailed it…

     
    So, if I was to purposefully undermine a functioning democracy I might:
    1. Mute the public broadcaster
    2. Muzzle the chief elections officer
    3. Undermine, dismiss and attack knowledge and those that pursue it 
    4. Shred scientific knowledge and libraries
    5. Fire public servants for doing their job if they disagrees in
    any way with my stated ideology
    6. Isolate other levels of elected government by decision making in joint areas of concern in isolation
    7. Limit access of the media in all it’s forms to elected government officials
    8. Massively expand the size of my communications department and provide handlers to any public servant wishing to talk to media or publish scientific data.
    9. Attempt to pass laws that intrude on the basic and fundamental privacy rights of my citizenry. 
    10. I could do all that but why bother… I could just vote Conservative.

    Zdzisław Beksiński, theme: Brown.

    "These paintings where made by Zdzisław Beksiński, a poorly known Polish painter. In earlier works he painted deforming models and couples during sex acts. In the Polish communist ’80s this meant his work could only been seen by few. 

    A few years later he started painting dark, mysterious images containing dead bodies and visions of Hell. He took inspiration from his nightmares; he often woke up in the middle of the night and began to paint.

    People talk about there being a curse on his family. His wife died young due to illness, his son commited suicide. It was Beksiński who found his body. In 2005 Beksiński’s body was found, which substained 17 stab wounds, in his Warsaw flat. Three days later, police charged two teenagers for his murder.

    Every one of his works was named ‘no title’, for he hated his own work.”
