Modern bodybuilding is ritual, religion,
by Camille Paglia

Modern bodybuilding is ritual, religion,
sport, art, and science, awash in Western chemistry and mathematics.
Defying nature, it surpasses it.
- Camille Paglia

by it we make objects,
giving them limit, symmetry, proportion.

its violations are a protest against the violations
of our freedom by nature.

ruled by a complacent, greedy elite,
and hopelessly powerless to respond to changing conditions?

of sex comes from the danger of sex.
You can be overpowered.

Men have to do all sorts of stuff to prove that they
are worthy of woman's attention.

you see the reality of sex, of male lust and women
being aroused by male lust.
It attracts women.
It doesn't repel them.
- Camille Paglia

Leaving sex to the feminists is like letting your dog
vacation at the taxidermist.
- Camille Paglia

They have voices.
They speak of their history and interrelatedness.
And they are all talking at once!
- Camille Paglia

The madness of TV is the madness of human life.

It's part of the sizzle.

of any more American lives or treasure.

It is capitalist America that produced the modern independent woman.
Never in history have women had more freedom of choice in regard to dress,
behavior, career, and sexual orientation.
- Camille Paglia

A serious problem in America is the gap between academe and the mass media,
which is our culture.
Professors of humanities, with all their leftist fantasies,
have little direct knowledge of American life and no
impact whatever on public policy.
- Camille Paglia

Within the U.S., the Obama presidency will be mainly
measured by the success or failure of his economic policies.
And here, I fear, the monstrous stimulus package with
which this administration stumbled out of the gate
will prove to be Obama's Waterloo.
- Camille Paglia

Why has the Democratic Party become so arrogantly detached
from ordinary Americans? Though they claim to speak
for the poor and dispossessed,
Democrats have increasingly become the party of an
upper-middle-class professional elite,
top-heavy with journalists, academics and lawyers.
- Camille Paglia

The moment is ripe for an experienced businessman to talk practical,
prudent economics to the electorate -
which is why Mitt Romney's political fortunes are steadily
being resurrected from the grave.
- Camille Paglia

Out with stereotypes, feminism proclaims.
But stereotypes are the west's stunning sexual personae,
the vehicles of art's assault against nature.
The moment there is imagination, there is myth.
- Camille Paglia

If Obama fails to win reelection, let the blame be
first laid at the door of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi,
who at a pivotal point threw gasoline on the flames
by comparing angry American citizens to Nazis.

My thinking tends to be libertarian.
That is, I oppose intrusions of the state into the private realm -
as in abortion,
sodomy, prostitution, pornography, drug use,
or suicide, all of which I would strongly defend as
matters of free choice in a representative democracy.
- Camille Paglia

Sotomayor's vainglorious lecture bromide about herself
as "a wise Latina" trumping white men is a vulgar embarrassment -
a vestige of the bad old days of male-bashing feminism.
- Camille Paglia

The 1990s, after the reign of terror of academic vandalism,
will be a decade of restoration: restoration of meaning,
value, beauty, pleasure, and emotion to art and restoration of art to its audience.
- Camille Paglia

and meaning; that exceptional men, as much as economic forces,
produce change; and that passe abstractions like beauty,
nobility, and greatness have a shifting but continuing validity.

And as a product of the 1960s, I thought the Democratic
party was passionately committed to freedom of thought and speech.
- Camille Paglia

People who work together will win,
whether it be against complex football defenses,
or the problems of modern society.

must be broken, or else we shall be plunged
into the dark abyss of annihilation.

it is the honest man who doesn't know what he is doing.
