Parts and Wholes

by Dr. David Fialk, Editor / Publisher


There is no thin line between genius and madness. It's just that genius pays the bills, usually handsomely. Besides, in a capitalist society, if you are off your rocker and making a lot of money, then you are not crazy, you are eccentric.

Curing polio or smallpox is one thing, but you do not want to put scientists in charge of complicated social-economic phenomena.

After the hacienda workers were freed from their slavery, lacking a sense of their own dignity, the common Mexican had to be taught to respond, to greet other people in the street, to say one of the Mexican equivalents of "Hello."

This retreat into our own private worlds is the malady affecting our whole society. Our barbarism is our divisiveness, our inability to feel communal.

Look closely at the faces in these images. Look at the expressions. They tell something.

...too many years shooting in a city that looked almost entirely like it was staged, scene-complete with actors. L.A. just burns you out.

We try to get people out of el Centro to see the amazing murals that have been and are being created. This town is over-brimming with talent.
