W. Kandinsky: "There are no 'musts' in art." T.S. Eliot: "There is no freedom in art." Dostoievski character, after the ancient Middle East epigram: "Everything is permitted." (R-rated weblog. Since one has been advised there is no Literature anymore, or even literature, only writing, one proceeds on the premise that this weblog qualifies as not-meaningless, since it is, or appears to be, a form of "writing."

Dungeons & Dollars
Reading Jane Mayer's Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right, I think the Koch brothers who are running the business enterprise need to ask themselves whether they belong in jail for manslaughter, or perhaps capital murder, for the environmental pollution they have inflicted on citizens of the U$A. And while "we" are in the political sector--Bernie's campaign has been beneficial to the country, but by endorsing Hillary today he has revealed that he is perhaps too old to be a true revolutionary. Revolutionaries do not compromise. As a young man said to the UN in the fifties, or sixties: "Patria ou morte." Yet all honor and respect to the man, he has a heart, a characteristic all too uncommon in the U$ political arena.
