Reflection 2.28.18

What is it about us, the public, and what is it about conformity that causes us all to require it of our neighbors and our artists, and then, with consummate fickleness, to forget those who fall into line and eternally celebrate those who do not? Might not one surmise that there is some degree of nonconformity in us all, perhaps conquered or suppressed in the interest of our general well-being, but able to be touched or rekindled?
