One of the greatest paintings of all time, The Garden of Earthly Delights: an analysis
Not sure I entirely agree with all of his thoughts but every analysis differs. The historical context is interesting:

In his poem Human Pride, Marx admits that his aim is not to improve the world, reform or revolutionize it, but simply to ruin it and enjoy it being ruined:

With disdain I will throw my gauntlet full in the face of the world,
And see the collapse of this pygmy giant whose fall will not stifle my ardor.
Then will I wander godlike and victorious through the ruins of the world
And, giving my words an active force, I will feel equal to the Creator.

“Looking for consciousness in the brain is like looking in the radio for the announcer.”

– Nasseim Haramein, Director of Research for the Resonance Project


Normalize every aberrant behavior, bring common all deviancy and let fly the reins of morality and reason, then welcome in that utopia that liberals embrace called communism, that which most Americans with but a shard of ethic would immediately recognize as evil.

Completely agree.

I have a book of his paintings and remember being astounded at the detail. I looked for hours with a magnifying glass because there's so much and what is usually a blurred out background in other paintings, is extremely detailed with more and more to discover. That applies to all of his incredible works.
