On Being Grateful to be American
From detained Chinese artist Ai Weiwei's 1995 - 2003 series Study of Perspective.
Whenever I feel my government has let me down or somehow conspired to make my life miserable, I consider the fact that I am still allowed to get on the street and flip off the Fed Board of Governors on good old 20th and Constitution.
Ai Weiwei doesn't have that sort of luxury.
(Note: I rescind any strange patriotism in this post if the NSA is reading my emails without my permission at this very moment.)
