Making A Statement

Damn, y’all. I don’t watch The Simpsons but I read about Banksy doing their opening sequence and ... well ... damn. Watch it for yourselves:

If voting doesn’t work, and boycotts don’t work, what will? Increasingly I’m convinced that the only thing that will change the world, indeed the only thing that ever has, is the creative arts. Music, literature, art, film: these things hit people on an emotional level, they can transform one’s view of the world and engage people in a way that politics does not.

I’m increasingly convinced that this is correct.
