It doesn’t much matter whether you read McCarthy’s Tree as a scathing indictment of (il)liberalism, a dismissive gesture about art-world complacency, or just a big-ol’ anal treat. Think of it another way: Christians in many parts of the world take it for granted that a Christmas tree goes up when December rolls around. In other parts of the world, religious liberties—and many other civil liberties even here—are harder to come by. Testing our aversion to perversion is one way to judge our dedication to freedom.

"Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful"

— Buddha
