Bele: Are you blind, Commander Spock? Well, look at me. Look at me! Captain James T. Kirk: You are black on one side and white on the other. Bele: I am black on the right side! Captain James T. Kirk: I fail to see the significant difference. Bele: Lokai is white on the right side. All of his people are white on the right side.

It seems to me that the time for subtlety, in our American life, has passed. Do we look for subtlety in news media nowadays? In pop music? In fashion? In TV, movies? Even in visual art, is subtlety what we seek out and richly reward? Do we seek delicate phraseology in politics or other forms of public life?
Art is never chaste. It ought to be forbidden to ignorant innocents, never allowed into contact with those not sufficiently prepared. Yes, art is dangerous. Where it is chaste, it is not art.
– Pablo Picasso
