Cultures rise and fall over time, just like individuals. Our culture went rotten years ago, and we are seeing the fallout now in terms of tribal identification and stagnation of our arts and politics. Everything is a sequel, every argrument a tired out set of cliche's about hippies and brownshirts. Our way of life is not pleasing to a great majority of us, but that is the normal human state of affairs. It may take a civil war or strong outside influence to restore the culture- or it may be settling in for an unstoppable decline. Right v. Left has little meaning anymore: now its authority v. liberty, and you have people on both of the old sides looking for more of one than the other.
