Open Letter from Vito Acconci

A city exists by means of density and mix – a mix of genders and races and colors and opinions, a close-up of genders and races and colors and opinions. A school exists by means of density and mix – a mix of theories, a mix of systems – a close-up, a swarm, of all the ways-to-live in the world. In the middle of this mix, a person decides, a person lives, for him/her-self.

Both the city and the school are ways to leave home. A city-dweller, a city-meanderer, a student, might choose to go back home, or try to go home again; but the person makes that choice on his/her own, for him/her-self. Neither the city nor the school promotes belief; it might engender commitment, give occasions for commitment, but never belief.

The inhabitants of a city shouldn’t conform to the government of the city; students shouldn’t conform to the administration of the school; the government of the city, the administration of the school, has to twist and warp and morph to fit the inhabitants, to fit the students. People shouldn’t be afraid of their government, students shouldn’t be afraid of their administration; it’s the government, it’s the administration, that should be longing to be afraid of its people, its students – it’s that fear that keeps the government, the administration, alive and changing.

When a city official engenders belief, by punishing the non-believer, that city official turns the city into a suburb. When the provost of a college supports the city official, that provost turns the school into a church. Each tries to close an open system, and a closed system can’t help but die. Conservatism is a last gasp of a dying culture, a desperate attempt to preserve the old world when the new world – the exhilaratingly frightening new world – is just around the corner.

-Vito Acconci

You mention that "A city exists by means of density and mix – a mix of genders and races and colors and opinions". Then you go on to say "Conservatism is a last gasp of a dying culture". As a Conservative Student, my opinion is usually not allowed or shouted down. Conservatism is not dying, it is on the rise. We have to be careful for now since our opinion directly effects our grades, jobs etc. But after 40 years of liberal ideas gone wild. We are making progress and will prevail. Try to at least listen and thing about our ideas. Thank you

Amen to that ! "a mix of genders and races and colors and opinions"?!! the Only opinions allowed are liberal ones ! I know this first hand since my grades have suffered in the past because of different opinions then my so-called Professor. I have to keep silent for now.

If Conservatism is dying, why has President Bush won the last 2 elections?

PLEASE go back to your red state.

This situation had nothing to do with the conservative/liberal paradigm. Simply, the BC admin's clutzty handling of not only students' first amendment rights, but also a requirement for their MFA degree.

The administration at BC is famously inept. They seems to have little or no regard or respect for their students on any level.

My question is simple, and probably a repeat. I will however ask it. Why does Mr. Julius Spiegel specifically say that the exibit was not 'family friendly'? What/who's family is he speaking about? My family of two married men and 2 VERY happy intelligent children, or the family that is not allowed to experience anything other than the mom, dad, sibling, dog and the Church? As much as no one should be allowed to determine whether art is art, as they are to determine what makes a family. Shame on their bigoted points of view. If they can argue that the Ten Commandments should be on every Government lawn, then we should be able to fight for our 1st Ammendment rights.

Good blog - very interesting!! I liked it so much I'm going to share this hush hush advice with you. Ever wondered how your neighbours are driving around in their brand new BMW or Mercedes cars - with their kids dressed in all the latest named gear and foreign holidays aplenty?? Well they discovered the secret to the extra online income.

If you are looking for a free tool to attract loads of free links to your blog or website then congratulations I've got the solution for you - and it is FREE!!

My website specialises in low interest home equity loan and to drive traffic to my website I was searching around the internet for absolutely ages looking for SEO tools and ffa submission sites to fire my site up the Google search engine - unfortunately these doing work and in fact had the opposite affect plunging my site down the rankings like it had a heavy weight attached!!, then I signed up for this free superb traffic generating tool - I now have loads of hits to my websites/blogs and my site is shooting back up the Google rankings quicker than ever before.

Consequently this saw my affiliate commissions shoot through the roof - meaning lots of extra money coming in for my family - I bought my first Mercedes car on the proceeds of my online campaign.
Sign up now - it's free.
. Sorry if this information is of no use to you but seeing as you have the anonymous feature enabled I thought I should share this free bit of essential promotional advice with you and would hope you would do the same for me and others who want to boost their online internet income.

I hope the tool will serve you equally as well as it has me - it's free!!

Best of luck, cheers for now, dave.
