The meme going around with all the protests for Bush’s South American tour has been Bush as Hitler. To be honest, this has me a little confused. Whatever you think about Bush, he’s not an actively evil person. He’s more of a bumbling moron who means well. I admit that I gave these people a lot more credit than they deserve. There’s been a terrific price paid for such legitimately good things as a free Kurdish people and a freer Iraq.
Then again, the idea that people still think Hitler is bad is probably a good thing. Since in this cultural wash cycle everyone has their day, you never know when the big Adolf is coming back. It could come from anywhere–a renaissance of his paintings, perhaps?
What Hitler didn’t know is the main fact of modern life: only a part of you must be redeemable, if you want to be redeemed.
Actually, his paintings aren’t half bad:
I like the composition and subject matter here. This isn’t the Dark Ages, after all. If only Hitler had picked one group of people besides white people to support in his racist view of society. What if he was really into albinos? He could have been the freakin’ champion of those people.
This one was actually a frame filler.
It’s not half-bad, although one can discern the faintest beginnings of anti semitism in the tree that looks like my nose.
I’ve never really visited Resident Advisor before, but I think I’ll start.
