"Western culture likes to castrate the powerful, maybe because it doesn't want to be less powerful than something else, that maybe it has to bring everything down to a level where...well, maybe it's capitalism really, to where it's a product, to where it's something that can be controlled by purchase, controlled by owning it and by owning, even in art."
