One party systems seem to end up with half the people wearing burkas and the other half making sure they keep them on. I really don't want to live like that.


You don't seem to realize that most University art departments do force all their students and faculty to wear modernist burkas.

They have steadfastly sabotaged each and every attempt to bring traditional realism into their departments, along with the disciplined and codified programs needed to train artists in that tradition.

Sure! You can find a few exceptions. But they are few and far between.
