We Do Not Have Any Rights Left!

For all art and criticism, a little dash of narcissism is necessary.

But here, there lies a terrible temptation.

Art and criticism are driven between the gap between me and The Outside.Instead of leading us to idolatry of the self, this chasm should lead us to self-sacrificial love of others, and an emptying-out that demands no price, and asserts no claims.

If you seek truth and beauty, you no longer have any rights.

You must subordinate all to a higher vision.

For now we see as through a glass, darkly…

But then face to face.
