We’re always responsible for our actions.
We’re free.
I raise my hand – I’m responsible.
I turn my head to the right – I’m responsible.
I’m unhappy – I’m responsible.
I smoke a cigarette – I’m responsible.
I shut my eyes – I’m responsible.
I forget that I’m responsible, but I am..

a Kurt Vonnegut Sunday

"I sometimes wondered what the use of any of the arts was. The best thing I could come up with was what I call the canary in te coal mine theory of the arts. This theory says that artists are useful to society because they are so sensitive. They are super-sensitive. They keel over like canaries in poison coal mines more before more robust types realize that there is any danger whatsoever."
