Andy Warhol was not put to death

I think Socrates was, retrospectively, the Warhol of his time. Remember the trial in Athens Greece 399 BCE when nearly 501 jurors convicted Socrates of irreverence and being deceitfully influential to the young people of the time. Does this not sound familiar? The difference between Socrates and Warhol is that instead of sentencing Warhol to death, like they did my man Socrates, we have immortalized him, or he himself, by continuously creating and evading popular culture. There is something to be said for Warhol’s ability to be desolate and amassing, it allowed him to appropriate one personality exclusively for everyone. Happy Birthday, Andy
