I suppose an oppressive regime's the same no matter the context hmm, gets me wondering if all art schools are the same though. Maybe there's one more like Buddhism, without the monotheistic approach that caters to self and ego, with a hierarchical regime that abuses their ability to control by skewing up ancient scriptures and changing the original message. Either way: probably one of the most interesting lectures in a long time this one, with styleful artistry to fit the narrative, in a plethora of styles to boot. Stone tablets, TD in multiple styles and the charts on what styles/religions lead to/did/went where were probably my favorite details. Good stuff.
