The Art of Democracy by David Fagerberg

"Democracy needs a place of privacy, which means, if we flip the words in the other order, private property. Chesterton's interest in defending Distributism is to defend human liberty and dignity, regardless of what he thinks of a home makeover edition that juxtaposes pea green with pink spots. The extraordinary artist could no doubt teach the democrat a better color combination, and the capitalist may have a bigger wall to paint than the democrat does, and the housing conglomerate may have built the walls too close to one another, but at least the democratic artists has a wall to paint."

It was the pea green house with the pink spots that reminded me of the Purple House. And speaking an a non-artist, I think pea green and pink do go together.
