A few years ago, I was awarded a Professional Development Course for artists. Part of the homework was to write an Artist Statement. I worked and worked; polishing an eliminating, until I only had the kernel that was “me.” When I read it out; I was told: “That’s what everyone would say.”
I got tired of being known as just “Doug,” or “Oh, him,” or “If he’s coming; I’m not going,” and decided to remake my image — “Doug the Beloved” [the guy who used to be just “him.”] I was just about to announce this, when there was a Pandemic and the bar was closed — why does this sort of thing always happen to me?

The progression of angry facial expressions is based on the pain assessment charts found in medical treatment rooms.

Many people I talk to are afraid to express themselves publicly because of the anger that is directed to them by an ideologically controlled mob. These “doctrine holders” don’t persuade by their love, they control through their hate. This behavior matches the early pattern of the worst tyrannies in history. • The page ends with a quote from Frederick Douglass: “To make a contented slave it is necessary to make a thoughtless one.” • • Unthinking anger and hate are the great doctrinal cleansers of Cornithaca County.
