I do believe that were the public to awaken to its hunger for beauty, there would be rebellion in the streets. Was it not aesthetics that took down the berlin wall and opened china? Not market consumerism and western gadgets as we are told, but music, color, fashion, shoes, fabrics, films, dance, lyrics, and the shapes of cars. The aesthetic response leads to political action, becomes political action, is political action.
