High- and Low-Culture-

Or popular culture: I don’t make that difference. I only make the difference between what I like and what I don’t like and will leave such labels up to the philistine who, having no real interest in art anyhow, will, instead of refining his taste by consumption, give emphasis to what so-called experts tell him that one ought to like.

'Épater la bourgeoisie' and all that...

Unfortunately it is not that easy anymore- you, I, even the so-called Royals are the bourgeoisie, nowadays or at least act more and more like it; well-defined, actual hierarchies are branded as taboo and ubiquitous hypocrisy and corruption results.

Besides, today's people are too blasé, too lethargic, too morally weak, overly saturated by pron and violence in the arts and the media so that one would have to be much more religious, ascetic and especially- in their disgusting new-speak-: *intolerant*, meaning to have an opinion about anything without abandoning it for the sake of some post-modern, relativistic stance at the first sign of trouble,-- to shock them than I present myself here.
