When the pandemic started, I reposted this print I made with my friend Kevin Thurston. The caption was tongue-in-cheek, with a rhetorical question about whether or not we were uncomfortable enough yet. The past two weeks' events have created a level of discomfort like modern America has never known, and I feel proud to say: we're finally uncomfortable enough to revolt. It's going to be a long haul; it's going to take patience and perseverance, but as the Hong Kong protestors say: Be water. The softest thing in the world can overcome the hardest, in time. From the Tao Te Ching: "Supreme good is like water.
Water greatly benefits all things, without conflict.
It flows through places that people loathe.
Thereby it is close to the Way."
