On this Day of Remembrance, the effects of radical liberalism and nationalism (including Zionism) continue to plague society — with people unwilling/able to see their wrongheadedness, and be oriented to a more truthful way of living?

“And the fire on the hearth, which has burnt low throughout the scene, leaps up into sudden brightness.”

Republican victories today, seemed more a rebuke of progressives run amok than an embrace of the repugnant Trump.

OurikaThe engraving, made by French/German printmaker Alfred Johannot (c.1830), around the time of Delecroix’s: Liberty Leading the People, depicts a black Catholic nun in Morocco dialoguing with a ‘liberty’ scholar. She seems to be skeptical of his notions (see her eyes and hands), perhaps having found true freedom and enlightenment in communion with her God.

Coincidentally, there is presently an exhibition at Columbia University on the role played by black women in Modern 19th-century French art: Posing Modernity: The Black Model From Manet and Matisse to Today, at the Wallach Art Gallery.

For this and other important Old Master Prints, visit Woodside Fine Art.

HighTimes2HighTimesOne of America’s treasures is her black community, which today is the dominant influence in American culture. The driving force behind black greatness has always been a healthy dose of spirit (Holy Spirit). But at a time when black Americans have acquired enormous resources, opportunity and material power, there has sadly been an diminishing of that true (holy) spirit — because of activism (“loud and proud”) intent on building-up the self with unholy and malevolent spirits (42 million strong). The result is a community where black gold is becoming black mold.

StreetArt2018America’s leaders are loath to protect against, or even acknowledge, the ill-effects of wireless radiation on the unborn (and born).

An unarmed black man, Jamill Jones, killed Sander Szabo, an unarmed white man, with one punch in Long Island City (8/5) — after Szabo mistakenly knocked on Jones’ car window, thinking it was his Uber car. Jones was charged with third-degree assault and released without having to post any bail. New York State law allows for perps who kill people — with one punch, to walk.

For some African Americans in New York, it seems the only thing worse than being disregarded by taxis is being mistaken for one.
