to quote Ursula K. Le Guin:
We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings.
Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begins in art, and very often in our art, the art of words.

@unsuspicious @ende_gelaende I'd only heard of leGuin by name. According to wiki she was heavily influenced by her Anthropologist Dad who thought of a Eurasian model for the West missed out on africa but still enlightened and she influenced a Transgender artists.

But usually the ancient world academic disciplines are more compartmentalized. Can't find an actual reference I can look up for his works mind. But that's wiki for ya. @ende_gelaende
