In fact, anyone who compares western - and especially American - values and processes and history and so on, compared to almost any other culture that ever existed, would have been able to tell you that. The question is "crazy" as in dangerously unhinged? Or in the sense of "our one chance to escape the traps that mired every other civilization into a pit of dashed hopes and potential?" The jury is still out.

posted a cropped selection of this series. I just had to dig it up from my archives to share the whole series. I made a blog post about it when I discovered it awhile back. Here is my original text for shits 'n' giggles:
Not too long ago, I came across some stunning pictures at [www.conceptart.org] - which isn’t too hard to do actually! The series I’m sharing is Victory Gals, a personification of the girlie pictures often painted on the sides of aircraft. The artist’s interpretation, skill, and style are really attention-grabbing, and I just wanted to share them with you. [...] These pictures are huge.
There are a few other non-girlie pictures in the artist’s original post. They are wonderfully executed as well, and I hope to become this accomplished an artist someday!
