It’s Time That Americans to Cease Acting like Victims
Uncle Gregory believes a good artist should provoke thought; The Principle of Polarity, as taught by the ancient mystics, was that everything is dual, everything has two poles, and everything has its own pair of opposites.
For example, the opposite of North is South, the opposite of black is white. if all manifested things have two sides, two aspects, or two poles, two aspects, where does one side start and one side end? With darkness and light, so to speak, where does darkness leave off, and light begin?
Let us take a radical and extreme example—that of love and hate, two totally different mental states. Apparently totally different and yet there are degrees of hate and degrees of Love, and a middle point in which we use the terms “Like” or “Dislike,” which shade into each other so gradually that sometimes we are at a loss to know whether we “like” or “dislike” or “neither”.
My personal goal has been to highlight the middle polarity of the American Civil War which rarely gets any acknowledgment and understanding of the conflict, and how it affects us today. Furthermore, to show there was no true difference between the North and South, both needed slavery, and ever since the end of the conflict our nation has been going through “Withdrawal”.
As a person that has suffered for too many years with my own internal Civil War, I have defined my own warfare a spiritual war.
