The deep human need to violently break from conformity…


“A wild longing for strong emotions and sensations seethes in me, a rage against this toneless, flat, normal and sterile life. I have a mad impulse to smash something, a warehouse perhaps, or a cathedral, or myself, to commit outrages…”  Hermann Hesse

It seems the human need, deep within us all, to violently break from conformity has either led to  destruction or necessary change. But, an attempt to relate to the dark complexity of humanity brings understanding and connects us further.
