With the rise of big business, mass media and industrial capitalism in the 20th century, how was art a powerful vehicle of political expression?

Answer by Cimon
I think Pablo Picasso’s “Guernica” was the last powerful invective against war(1937) after that art loses its ancient role and confines its uses to investment value only.

Answer by Fox News is the best!
20th century art began with Modernism in the late 19th century. Nineteenth-Century movements of Post Impressionism and Art Nouveau led to the first 20th-Century art movements of Fauvism in France and Die Brücke (“The Bridge”) in Germany. Fauvism in Paris introduced heightened non-representational colour into figurative painting. Die Brücke strove for emotional Expressionism. another German group was Der Blaue Reiter (“The Blue Rider”), led by Kandinsky in Munich, who associated the blue rider image with a spiritual non-figurative mystical art of the future. Kandinsky was a pioneer of abstract (or non-representational) art. Cubism, generated by Picasso rejected the plastic norms of the Renaissance by introducing multiple perspectives into a two-dimensional image. Dadaism, with its most notable exponent, Marcel Duchamp, rejected conventional art styles altogether by exhibiting found objects, notably a urinal. futurism incorporated the depiction of movement and machine age imagery.

parallel movements in Russia were Suprematism, where Kasimir Malevich also created non-representational work, notably a black canvas. The Jack of Diamonds group with Mikhail Larionov was expressionist in nature.

Answer by daughtereponymous
They did not see death generations after generations. We are placed in flesh our vessel with a broken spirit.

What do you think they been doing All these Generations ! Making War On G-D and us.

read; Psalm 82:5 You forgot ! Psalm 82:6 you are gods, and all children of The Most High. Psalm 82:7 But you can die like men dust to dust ashes to ashes read it and weep !

Psalm 8:5 For Thou made him a little lower than the angels.

Psalm 51:8 ( you are not made in here in the Image of G-D ___Yet !__ YOu been broken off form the Tree of Light you are just a seed that needs to enter G-D’S Womb to re-new a Right Spirit with-IN-you Psalm 51:10-11-12.

YOu mankind have left HIS WOMB EMPTY READ JER.10:20 ____WHY ?___YOU LET THEM CUT THE CORDS. No children enter His Law His Womb. Empty ! Empty ! Empty!

Generations of them forming all kinds of religions to hunt you down in the world to keep added and added to sin upon sins of generations. Wake Up You Are In A Great Horror of Darkness They Have Lulled you into A Fearfull Deep sleep, and you will wake up in Horror !

Psalm 17:15 As for me, I will Behold Thy Face In Righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Thy Likeness.

YOU not growing in His Likeness in their lies and deceits Wake Up the Biggest Lie in the World in the one your telling your self. Your deceiving your self and your sons and daughters for another generation to be hunted down and lead to the pit.

Jeremiah 10:14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge: Every founder (of religions all) are confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is flasehood, and there is no breatfalsehood. 15 They are Vanity, and Work of Errors: In the time of ____THIER___VISITATION they shall VATHEIR

THEY SHALL VANISH____WHY____BECAUSE___YOUR EYES AND EARS WILL___OPEN.

YOU WILL COME OUT OF THEM AND NOT VOTE THEM IN OFFICE TO RULE YOUR NATIONS. They pull the strings they have the money and the power to buy what they want to be kings over you to creat wars to brake the peace yoCreate have in this world. Making SIN THE BIG DESIRE of mankind. Keeping Spiritual Wickedness be come the rulers over religions cutting the cords.

Psalm 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against His anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords form us.

Jeremiah 10:20 My Tabernacle is spoiled and all My Cords are Broken: My children are gone forth of Me, and they are not: there is none to stretch forth My Tent any more, and to set up My Curtains.

They been here from the first…..Growing In Power and Control In High Places. Only With G-D With Us Can we Take Them Down.

Remember Samson form the tribe of Dan, that us, and remember King Solomon with all the earthly knowledge he still had to seek out G-D the One whom his soul does love. Mankind are like king Solomon looking in all the wrong places. Read: Song of Solomon 3:1 to 4 Note verse 3 the Watchmen took him into the lie and deceit of who G-D was for a time.

We are the Generation that is being summoned to STAND UP and GROW the RIGHTEOUS BRANCH that was planted by G-D, to take Down the horse Death and pull his rider down Satan in our world. Jer.1:5-10 Your called to enter His Womb , His Spirit is a Virgin In the Earth No children grow . Only His anointed entered in Jer.1:5-10 Come out of the Lie and Deceit enter His womb and grow a Weapon Of War in His hand, take them Down Jer.51:20-21-22-23

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : What’s your opinion on the younger generaton converting to Wicca?

Witchcraft is not a requirement of Wicca however I feel a lot of them chose to do it.
I’ve seen as young as 12 year old stating themselves as Wiccan and taking part in witchcraft.
This is all coming from a Wiccan Witch, I wish they could give it a bit more time and a lot of them are far to young for Divination and other witchcraft.
I think the spiritual path should begin at 15 or onwards, they are still young and not mature enough.
Anyone else agree?

Answer by tax_senior2002
I think it shows just how pitiful our system of public education has become.

Answer by Lyricoll
I agree. Unfortunately their thoughts are clouded by all the hoopla in the Media/Hollywood.

Answer by Ben
I have actually noticed many young people converting to Islam, which really bothers me because they know nothing of the religion or history but they are simply doing it because they believe their parents and other adults are “racist” against Muslims. I don’t like the younger generation becoming Wiccan, that is kind of messed up.

Answer by David
I think(or maybe hope) it’s a phase because it may be the least credible religion in history.

Answer by Wonder Weirdo
I think a great deal of it has to do with kids wanting to take some kind of control over their own lives. I’m not opposed to paganism or wicca being their choice, but I think that when a kids starts doing something involving witchcraft, it may be because they want to have some for of authority of their own.

Answer by Atheism Fails Again
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are [these]; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, DRUNKENNESS, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told [you] in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
(Galatians 5:19-21)

Answer by Suzanne
Parents tend to try to raise their children in the religion that they themselves follow. If Wiccan parents have taught a child and the child chooses to follow, I see no problem. Individual circumstances vary. Parents and children need to work this out for themselves.

Answer by American moderate
Children do not have the capacity to make judgments about religion which is why most are indoctrinated into what ever their parents are. They can become fascinated with stories and misinformation which is rampant out there, and think that they are going to be magicians or such. With age usually comes understanding, and then they can usually choose their own path.

Answer by Me
I think you’re right, yet at the same time…conversion is supposed to be like a revelation, if you think you suddenly know something about life…then how do you say you won’t believe it until you’re 15?

Answer by moonplanter
It isn’t as harmful as Christianity. Or any theism as far as that goes.

Wicca doesn’t teach hatred and bigotry.

Answer by House825
I think a lot of kids are desperate to feel like they belong to a group of some kind, or perhaps to feel special. Their parents are getting divorced. or their parents are working all the time. There is too much emphasis in belonging to a certain popular group or having boyfriends/having sex when you’re too young Maybe this is a way for some kids to find a group to be part of.

Answer by erisian trubble
I think there’s a whole lot of kids who “dabble” at a young age. Iv’e seen a number of my own friends kids who grew up around the Craft and found themselves on some other path in their 20s. Of course I’ve seen plenty of adults dabble too.

Generally speaking, traditional training isn’t available to children under 18, so they are really just doing their “own thing” and giving it a “spooky” name. Could be worse. Could be drugs.

Answer by Song
I think it is interesting and valid when a young person takes a spiritual perspective on things. Although it’s too bad that there are so few people who are able to guide these unformed youngsters into a mature spirituality, so they end up getting themselves caught up in delusions and trouble.

Written by TANTRAPSYCHIC

Born and brought up in India. When I came in to senses . i was able to see strange figures in surroundings. When ever i told this to my mom. She used to laugh at me and always said you are day dreaming.

I was always able to see dead people ever since i was 10 years old. My journey in to the field of Tantra started at the age of 14 years, when a neighbor gave me Durgasaptshati book. which is very powerful stotra path of goddess Durga.

Also i started studying Palmistry. When i was 16 years old i was attacked by a demon while i was sleeping by that time i was following tantra and saved my self by mantra power. Since then I never looked back and I kept trying new Dhyan Yoga, Mantra and Tantra sadhnas procedures.
