I am not a member of any party or any political organization. I strongly believe an artist shouldn’t be part of an organization, because they nurture a sort of collectivist sentiment and work toward dogmas. I strive for the Anarchist ideal. Anarchy is a total departure from that totalitarian point where every government is heading.
We are all within that vector; every person is born under a whip, under the authority’s apparatus of abuse which the government relies upon for power; a system directed at pressuring the people.
To not be crushed completely, a person must resist the system. A person must strive toward a point of reversal in order to keep himself above water, I think. If you don’t, you will sink under the planes of disciplinary institutions.
Since Jacobs first traveled to Russia for the Sanctity of Motherhood conference, he and his WCF colleagues have returned regularly to bolster Russia’s nascent anti-gay movement—and to work with powerful Russian connections that they’ve acquired along the way.

“It was interesting that it was happening, but what was happening wasn’t interesting anymore… There’s nothing. Not because there isn’t anything, but because what is there is not for us… It’s not popular for its sentimental universality. It’s successful because of its unproblematic banality. It is shiny and happy and lubricated, ready to be lodged perpetually up the market’s own ass, but it’s not fun anymore.”—The Last Word on Jeff Koons’ Balloon Dog
