I had an English professor who told me, “All art must support the revolution.” He didn’t seem to know exactly which revolution it was supposed to support. I asked him about his thoughts on Bach and Monet and Shakespeare. He said that they weren’t artists. I saw a lot of this in my university days. The professors sitting in the back of the coffeehouse trying to seduce the coeds with their talk of revolution. I think we give the professors too much credit. They are human beings. Most of their high sounding rhetoric is just a cover for greed and arrogance and horniness.

I noticed that when I was in school, (1966–1972.) There seemed to be a great deal more posturing than substance, and much of what passed for "substance" eventually led me to conclude:

There is no greater conformist than the rebel.
