The Golden Calf of Wall Street

Huh…so…the “Fearless Girl” statue in front of the Golden Calf of Wall Street is in the news again. Some guy parked a “Urinating Dog” statue next to the Fearless Girl statue. Okay, two things.

First, who cares about this whole “Dueling Statues” shindig?! The Golden Calf of Wall Street is obviously an idol. The best way to afford it credibility is to react to it as if it has any genuine power. Parking a statue of some girl in front of it just affords credibility to the superstition. You want to make a statement? Stop buying into the Government Wall Street Complex.

Again, the Wall Street “Bull” statue is such an obvious idol, we don’t need to wait 5,000 years for an archaeologist to tell us this. I mean, just look at the current archaeology of Ancient Minoan and Ancient Egyptian civilizations. There you will see it and its progenitors. And how can anyone miss the golden calf the Israelites made in the Bible? Is the Golden Calf of Wall Street any different? No. If it survives World War Three, archaeologists will declare it evidence of a bull-worshipping cult whose temple was called Wall Street.

Second, Americans love making “bold statements” that are as devoid of true substance as biodegradable packing peanuts and dust bunnies. That’s so they can look like they’re “sticking it to The Man” while still buying all the crap The Man sells them, watching what The Man shows them on TV, and believing what The Man tells them. So, all the Urinating Dog really did, regardless of the artist’s motives, was accidently demonstrate the laughable nature of the entire construct.
