We have seen the future, and it sucks.

‘Hitler Considered Himself an Artistic Genius’

31st August 2009

Read it.

…which is perhaps why we ought not to take artists seriously when they talk about politics.

Hitler’s deluded view of himself as a genius is based on the confused system of thought emerging in the late 19th century, which centered on the idea that a genius — a strong personality who outshone everything else — could do anything and could do anything he pleased.

Sounds like a Kennedy.
