    1946 essay from Wilhelm Reich. Sharp, needfully brutal stuff. This man's life was ruined (and works suppressed) by the powers that be, whom he casually and shamelessly embarrassed. He deserves to be heard today!

    I hesitated to post that picture. But I have to.

    This is beyond voyeurism. It makes one's blood run cold. I'm sorry.



    Please let it be flooded with a wave of compassion.

    (I'm not sure what to think about taking a picture in such a situation and publishing it worldwide - apart from personality right- and copyright issues.)

    Two last war pictures for a while. I'll stick with the beauty now, I promise.

    . . and yet this last one.






    Abdul Metalib and his wife, Halcha Khan, started smoking opium after losing a son; each of their 11 children died
    before age six. Many Kyrgyz say they use the drug as an escape from pain, since they have no doctors or medicine.

    I question the philosophy of not exhibiting anything graphic, especially those showing blood and bodily damage. Does it make us feel better by turning our eyes away from cruelty and the evil, and just staring at the pleasant sights? It is exactly by not seeing the cruel deaths and destructions that the drone controllers feel fun to pull the triggers and no remorse whatsoever. It is also the ever present views of sexy commercials and sports heroes that tranquilizes our senses and make us blind to the real world. In the 60s the horrendous scenes of real war and the footages of Buddhist monks incinerating themselves on the streets of Saigon were presented on the evening news while the family was dining. These led to violent anti-war movements and I think some university students were shot. The US government was forced to pull out of the war partly because of this. Now I don’t see any big opposition to the war machine when the need for it is very urgent (or that I don’t know). People have become rather submissive while some may think they know a higher philosophy that will bring peace without anger and confrontation. I believe therefore graphic contents are necessary as a means to awaken people. This may seem paradoxical but the brutal reality is just thousand folds worse than some mere images to be ignored.
