The whole drive of western culture, the part of it which is serious, is towards an extreme objectification. It's carried to the point where the human subject is treated almost as if it's dirt in the works of a watch.
Rock became an incredible commercial success, people just became bored with serious music, and it was forgotten.
I'm trying to assemble materials for a different mode of life.
When somebody says that all statements are false, the obvious problem is that as an assertion it's self-defeating.
Basically, I viewed any work of art as an imposition of another person's taste, and saw the individual making this imposition as a kind of dictator.
