Are you fully prepared for your showdown with The Machine? Are you as confident as you need to be in order to fight for the rights of soulful beauty? Of course not. None of us is ever perfectly prepared as we go up against the Big Lies of the mechanical thinkers. But I do have great faith in your ability to prevail — especially if you strengthen yourself with this meditation from the book Less Than One, by Joseph Brodsky: “The surest defense against evil is extreme individualism, originality of thinking, whimsicality — even if you will, eccentricity . . . Evil is a sucker for solidarity. It always goes for big numbers, for confident granite, for ideological purity, for drilled armies and balance sheets.”
I’ve always said I’d rather be a wolf than a sheep!
