his terrible history of misogyny, xenophobia, and hate

Publications have described his comments as “catty”, “bitchy”, “acid-tongued and superficial” and “controversial” instead of sexist, misogynistic, racist, fatphobic, and islamophobic. The blatant separation of the artist from the art perpetuates cycles of abuse in which men like Lagerfeld can occupy prominent spaces in our industries and face no consequences for their words or actions, and be fondly remembered when they are dead. The fashion industry continued to let this terrible person hold a place of high-esteem and reduced his commentary to Lagerfeld simply being a bit eccentric. It’s time the fashion industry make honest remembrances of the man and that you grapple with his true legacy and the reality of oppression in fashion if you truly hope to make more space for marginalized people and bodies in fashion—I’m not going to hold my breath for this one, I don’t want to pass out.

absolute power depends on absolute control over knowledge, which in turn necessitates absolute corruption

Think about this

“Politicians, Priests, and psychiatrists often face the same problem: how to find the most rapid and permanent means of changing a man’s belief…The problem of the doctor and his nervously ill patient, and that of the religious leader who sets out to gain and hold new converts, has now become the problem of whole groups of nations, who wish not only to confirm certain political beliefs within their boundaries, but to proselytize the outside world.” – William Sargant “Battle of the Mind”
