This is nothing more than a link to a talk given by David Wash of the Socialist Equality Party back in 1998, and a place to discuss it. The talk is not short, and the issues are not simple (at least, for me). I have no idea if anyone here would want to read through the whole thing, but I have to say I found it fascinating, insightful, and dead on.
“To become whole, human beings require the truth about the world, and about themselves, that art offers.”
So, for those who want to read it, here it is.
