I am angry..... why is art, poetry, literature dominated by left wing, closed minded shallow middle class people... I am right of centre but am still a poet, an artist .. why do the self righteous left hold the monopoly on what they think is creative and good?

Serious question ( if you can understand it)

I'm too old, and too tired, to get angry. Yet, why am I so often angry? Damn them all!

Closed-minded Liberals?  Who knew?  Are we referring to the 'Make Love not War' mindset, while the majority of conservative politicians and parents judge them closed-mindedly as bleeding hearts and tree huggers?  Then again, I might not understand - being it's serious, and I'm, well, considered pretty left-wing; I can't keep the blood mopped up.

Traditions of eras past provide guidance for our future and should not be dismissed out of hand as antiquated.

Would love more History to Your rant / Question

All the " underground " clubs i've been to where speaking in front of a mic is encouraged
I saw no dominance one way or another.

I just have to say, the title of this thread seems to answer the thread's questions itself. Angry angry angry isn't exactly an entry to conversation.

why do the self righteous left hold the monopoly on what they think is creative and good?


Well, any of us hold the monopoly on what we think is creative and good, right? What is art to me is mine alone to decide.

Serious question ( if you can understand it)


What a strange oxymoron that condescending comment is.

I will read your poems now. If I like them, I will respond accordingly. Such power I hold!

Right. Can't monopolize a darn thing when one is being a wallflower.  Or a snowflake.

I can understand, thanks. Let calmness prevail, shall we?

Other people only take power that WE ALLOW THEM TO TAKE. I capitalize that deliberately. You want to get rid of the left wing, closed minded shallow middle class people in poetry and art? DO IT.  Personally, I say allow them to create what they consider art - why care? Why waste emotion and time on being angry and frustrated?  This is a lesson I am still learning, to hold onto my power and assert myself. Try it - be thoughtfully, deliberately assertive.

Blessings, Silence

If everyone would just focus on their own purpose and subsequent goals they wouldn't have time to focus on what others are doing.  I simply do not understand this competitive spirit, anger, or worry over how someone else is living their life - especially when all they're doing is contributing arfully to the beauty of it, and not harming others.  Be they left, right, or straight down the middle.
