Kurt Weller on Politics

I am not a political person. I've never studied politics. I am in no way an expert on the subject. However, over the past several years I have begun to notice that the vast majority of political experts out there are nothing more than entertainers who validate the beliefs and fears of their audiences. It reminds me of film or literary criticism in that you have a person espousing a political opinion based on dubious credentials.

For a few years now I have thought of creating a political essay in film form. In order to flesh out the ideas that will appear in this essay I have decided to start an electronic journal where I can record the thoughts that come to me. This will be purely personal and my main goal is to try and make sense of the world that I live in. It would be dishonest to say that I am not trying to sway others to my way of thinking, after all, isn't that one of the major goals of political writing?

This will be held separate from the Plaza of the Mind and this will be the last that you hear of the project until the filmed essay is completed.

Remember, I do this for one reason and one reason alone: I am an American and I love the fact that I can do whatever the fuck I want to (within reason).

What People Are Saying About the Plaza of the Mind



...[Plaza of the Mind] impressed me in its magnificent weirdness...this sorta je ne sais quoi that you find in interesting art... ...I mean that purely as a compliment!

Plaza of the Mind is a clinamen away from the holeopathic replay by the Android Meme of the old perceptual agon of electrically-programmed youth confronting the Gutenbergian Establishment. Irresistible Force meets Immovable Object.
