    The arts have never been masculine, nor have artists ever been masculine, nor have I as an artist from a family of artists ever been obsessed with masculinity. Femininity is the creating will that resides within artists. What art in the postmodern age lacks is quality, a consequence of the devaluation of artistic talent. Architects are great at what they do because they have to be smart enough to erect buildings.

    As Goethe said: "Architecture is frozen music". The rest of the arts fall victim to subjectivity, lack of artistic discipline and the notions of validation and "artistic" expression. If you ever go into an art museum, like MOCA here in LA, you'll understand what I mean. There are some fine examples of modern artists such as James Turrell but art as a whole is lacking, not entirely because artistic endeavors can be obscene or unfruitful, but rather because art has been abandoned by the dexterous and embraced by clods. I appreciate a multitude of the artists that have come forward since the impressionists such as Basquiat and maybe even Warhol, but I think that if you intend to make people respect the arts, you should make the arts respectable. Music and Architecture are about the only things that aren't mediocre nowadays.

    Literature hasn't improved since the science fiction writers, and books were pretty much replaced by movies, sculpting has become the art of turds, urinals and used car parts and painting has become the practice of literally tossing oneself across a canvas and calling it art. It's just a get-rich-quick scheme for people who know how to manipulate people's interpretations of talent. Not to mention the degradation of several centuries of Opera tradition into shitty musicals for people who love plagiarizing Pink Floyd songs (phantom of the opera; it can be said perhaps ironically that the art of the musical is literally the "phantom of the opera").

    Its clear to me that art serves more of a purpose than empirical observation suggests, something any skeptic or "objectivist" who meanders towards the sciences isn't willing to admit; as Dostoyevsky said "The world will be saved by beauty" and as Nietzsche said "Art is the supreme task and the truly metaphysical activity". If anything is to blame for the devaluation of art, it is not the inattentiveness of non-artists towards art, but our inattentiveness towards art as artists.

    Well, most people don't care to discuss politics or are afraid to do so for fear of persecution. Everyday people don't know anything (or at the least, very much) about art or science or literature. Most people I come across just like to attend social gatherings, get drunk and talk about mundane bullshit. There's nothing remotely interesting about that. I like attending museums, listening to a variety of music, collecting things, reading philosophy, debating people and going for walks in the city. I hate nightclubs, parties and theme parks. Not very many people share my sentiments about life, and as you can tell, my "hot takes" are almost always controversial and garner disapproval and ad hominems, but it's the price I pay for attempting to convey what I believe may be true.

    Well, extraversion is certainly a trait, however it proves to be a waste of living.

    And don't mistake my position for "I'm not like the normies, I'm eloquent". I understand your attempt at criticism, and you're well in your right to criticize me, even if you do it poorly.

    I've been wearing a mask for most of my life in my attempts to relate to people, and i've only recently decided discard that persona for the sake of my enjoyment of life, as well as to partake in the process of individuation, but besides the intellectual gymnastics, I accept that I'm seen as being disagreeable and cynical, but I wouldn't emphasize that to the degree that I employ "me vs them" mentality in any sense besides ironically.

    I explained my position on art since that was part of the discussion, I was asked "Why I don't go outside and talk to somebody", I explained that I have a difficult time socializing because I don't care very much for excursions and small talk (and I spend a majority of my time thinking incessantly about things such as this), I was spurned for taking a typical introverted position, and here we are. I do not detest the notion that there are honest, average people, I just think those things are a waste of time. They're not for me. It's as simple as that.

    There are benefits to extraversion as there are to anything else, but the extraverts are the doers, not the thinkers. Kant was INTP, Einstein was INTP, Jung was INTP, and so am I. Efficiency is an illusion. You don't wanna be the extroverted publisher marketing some morons books, you wanna be that moron who does nothing but write nonstop at 3 in the morning about the pictures that fly through his head and make bank off of people who wear purple wigs for fun.
