"The point is that despite the very real continuing abuses born of antisemitism, born of racism and sexism and homophobia, there are elected officials and other leaders who are female, Jewish, black or gay. There are none who are poor. There never have been, and there never will be. Every decade since society's inception has been witness to a holocaust of paupers, so enormous and perpetual that it has become wallpaper, unnoticed, unreported."

"If you're standing in the manure pile, it's somebody's job to mention the stink. Those Congressmen are saying we have to call it a meadow of buttercups instead of a cesspool. Even the artists have to."

"Well, but suppose the artist's job is just to keep everyone amused? Maybe get their minds off the stink, by calling it a meadow. Where's the harm?"

"Nobody will climb out of the pile. There's the harm. They'll keep where they are, deep to the knees in dung, trying to outdo each other remarking on the buttercups."
