The problem with the modern man is that he conflates [his] preference with Beauty. His ego makes him blind.

For instance, just because you like your 5 year old child's drawing and hang it on your refrigerator does not mean that it immediately qualifies as Good or Beautiful art. How egotistic of you! — and what of the millions of other 5 year olds and their drawings? Why do they not appeal to you?

even "makers" largely just glue shit together nowadays, hey let's use some standardized aluminum extrusion and an arduino bro we're *inventing* something


This man understands.

Had the West actually participated in World War 2 in some meaningful degree, they may have come to understand but lest here we are.
