"All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred, and schizophrenia."
George Orwell, "Politics and the English Language"

The Personal Is Political
Essay title, Carol Hanisch

"Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault."
"I have a theory that the terrible art may be related to the general philosophy of Everyday Feminism. See, a lot of the social justice movement's ideology stems from postmodernist thought which rejects the notion that there exists an objective reality. This means there is no "right" way to do anything, and this serves as an excuse for pretty much whatever they want.

"Thirdly, they’re just bad artists. This is obvious as the majority of artists on the internet have feminist leanings, and there are an awful lot of really good artists. There are also lots of bad artists, and while they do often say “it’s just my style” this is clearly just an excuse, not a reason, as their art skills do tend to improve over time, showing that they do actually want to get better. This means that ideology rarely does have an effect on one’s quality of art.

— Tip O'Niell, 47th Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.
