From Last Communion
More war stories. I think I’ll call it “The Lucky Seven”. At 7:00 p.m. I descend into my studio and paint seven stories onto printing press clean-up sheets. The “lucky” are those fortunate to have lived during wartime when fear gathered all the people together in violence and racism.
World History is every class necessary to earn a degree in group psychology. Groupthink is an oxymoron, and a fear that consumes me with its mighty power. Just a brief read in any LIFE magazine published during the war years to see my point.
Can propaganda alone sway public opinion? Is the latter anything that the most noise (visual and official) says it is?
I think so.
