Letter to a conservative columnist, David


The problem is the pursuit of baubles. It began when America gave up on the intellectual and spiritual infrastructure of the Arts and culture for every person in America (1880s). From there it spread to education and then to healthcare and now is within the physical infrastructure. You have to have ideals and culture brings that. The carnival shill attitude of fundamentalism and conservative orthodoxy does nothing for the future except make it depressing. That includes your English conservatism as well. The English have been the consumers of Europe, giving up great music and art to the Italians, French and Germans and turning the nation into collectors. Here that English idea has turned viral and toxic on Wall Street. Property isn't the meaning of life David. Growth and an evolving competency and consciousness is. Digoweli
