    “We must always be careful not to fall into vulgar idealism. An ever-present danger when giving the power of stories its due. Ideas, stories, do not make themselves . . . ideas do not move history in any simple way.”

    This is something a lot of the art-is-magick change-the-fucking-world crowd neglects, I think. Grant Morrison in particular is just pathetic on this point.

      (Oh, and that image is just fantastic.)

      I always took that to mean that by creating art you can influence the way people think and only through that being about a material change in the world.

    This looks to be another interesting series – I’ll happily read more about the stuff you mention at the end, when talking about stories as resistance, in no small part because I can’t readily think of specific instances of the mechanisms you describe, so I feel like I don’t quite undertand your point (this, to be clear, is my failing, and not any fault of your writing). I’ll be happy to learn more.
