The talk 'Art, Blasphemy and the Freedom of Expression' organised by artist Lars Vilks, saw Finn Norgaard, a film director, shot at close range by another fool last week. The trouble is that these lone wolf type killings serve to censor and oppress ideas and thought. Why does this 'group' enjoy darkness so much? Death of creativity, ideas, rational, people.
We need a government that makes it clear that advocating reason over ideology, or rational enlightenment over fundamentalism is the only way to live well.
“The canary bird in the coal mine theory of the arts: artists should be treasured as alarm systems.”
