In general, I agree.

But I also cannot respect art and artists who gain fame by
utilizing The Technique of Offense... Some offenseive art
may be made for other reasons, but I often feel that in
many cases "OFFENSIVENESS" is used to get attention....

In any case it all comes down to communication...
what you choose to say, and what the beholder chooses (or
is able) to see.

(Sorry, I am a synesthesist)



It is hard to be peaceful when there are so many people
who get a kick out of being offensive.
