Fear Is The Most Elegant Weapon


FEAR IS THE MOST ELEGANT WEAPON.

YOUR HANDS ARE NEVER MESSY.

THREATENING BODILY HARM IS CRUDE.

WORK INSTEAD ON MINDS AND BELIEFS,

PLAY INSECURITIES LIKE A PIANO. BE

CREATIVE IN APPROACH. FORCE ANXIETY

TO EXCRUCIATING LEVELS OR GENTLY

UNDERMINE THE PUBLIC CONFIDENCE.

PANIC DRIVES HUMAN HERDS OVER CLIFFS.

AN ALTERNATIVE IS TERROR-INDUCED

IMMOBILIZATION. FEAR FEEDS ON FEAR.

PUT THIS EFFICIENT PROCESS IN MOTION.

MANIPULATION IS NOT LIMITED TO PEOPLE.

ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND DEMOCRATIC

INSTITUTIONS CAN BE SHAKEN. IT WILL BE

DEMONSTRATED THAT NOTHING IS SAFE,

SACRED OR SANE. THERE IS NO RESPITE

FROM HORROR. ABSOLUTES ARE

QUICKSILVER. RESULTS ARE SPECTACULAR.

From Inflammatory Essays, by Jenny Holzer. (1979-1980). Print on paper. Currently on display at The Tate Modern in London, England.
