It is interesting to watch the Left’s tantrum on Trump’s defunding the NEA at the same time they clamor to support the unlimited expansion of an ideology more destructive to the Arts than any Western leader has been, ever.
As we move into an AI-based post-Industrial world dragging the Industrial world behind us, how is it advisable not to eradicate a pre-Industrial tribal world that, for most in the protected establishment is a museum exhibit (aren’t those clothes and praying techniques just precious?) and, for the remaining billions of us, insistent on killing all those more advanced than they?
In every group of people – nation, religion, Rotary Club, PTA, etc. – three major subgroups exist: Leaders/Activists, Followers and Change Agents.

It’s a binary choice.

American culture began its precipitous decline when post-secondary education became disinterested in Western Civilization, which only can be learned and understood, and from which we only can understand who we are and how we got here – and why we chose the direction we chose, through the Humanities.
The adults allowed this because their Baby Boomer kiddies in 1968 rebelled at hard work of scholarship and occupied the administrative offices instead of studying in the libraries, and the “Greatest Generation” gave up on their get – who now are trashing the planet – witness Obama, Kerry, Democrat voters, the Far […]
