    The Virgin Mary is the icon of Orthodox Christians while the Statue of Liberty is the icon of Protestant Revolutionaries.

    So rather than being random, they are opposites.

    This is actually why they did what they did:
    Yekaterina Samutsevich
    That Christ the Savior Cathedral had become a significant symbol in the political strategy of the authorities was clear to many thinking people when Vladimir Putin’s former [KGB] colleague Kirill Gundyayev took over as leader of the Russian Orthodox Church. After this happened, Christ the Savior Cathedral began to be openly used as a flashy backdrop for the politics of the security forces, which are the main source of political power in Russia.

    [...]

    Our sudden musical appearance in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior with the song “Mother of God, Drive Putin Out” violated the integrity of the media image that the authorities had spent such a long time generating and maintaining, and revealed its falsity. In our performance we dared, without the Patriarch’s blessing, to unite the visual imagery of Orthodox culture with that of protest culture, thus suggesting that Orthodox culture belongs not only to the Russian Orthodox Church, the Patriarch, and Putin, but that it could also ally itself with civic rebellion and the spirit of protest in Russia.
    It still has nothing to do with what you're on about.
    For someone who supposedly promotes spontaneous creativity, you sure do over think things, and over think them a lot.

    C'mon, I make connections you can't see, so naturally you blame me.

    Yes, the connections you make are perversely entertaining and almost scandalously questionable at times. I quite enjoy them, really.

    And you don't see that they are learned and principled.

    I don't think those are venerations that can be self made. That's bordering on hubris, and is in poor taste at the least.

    Edit: also I think you're smart and creative and probably know a lot of things, and I like talking about things with you. I just don't like to do the runaway train thing where we end up self assured.

    Confidence is one thing but I think there comes a time to objectively weigh criticisms. Some times other people see things, too.
