I have decreed a day of appreciation for Ireland's foppish most witty and poetic son, Oscar Wilde.
Let's celebrate his works and discuss how much we love the big fop
From Dorian Gray to De Profundis his pre-eminent talents we will certainly miss.
"The fact is, that civilisation requires slaves. The Greeks were quite right there. Unless there are slaves to do the ugly, horrible, uninteresting work, culture and contemplation become almost impossible. Human slavery is wrong, insecure, and demoralizing. On mechanical slavery, on the slavery of the machine, the future of the world depends."
OSCAR WILDE, The Soul of Man Under Socialism
