“Great Civilizations Are Not Murdered. They Commit Suicide!”

One of the best ways to measure a culture in decline is to examine its contemporary art.   How do society’s “expressionists” express.  Where along the continuum from the sewer and  vile to the rich and uplifting do “artists” make their observations, imprints and money?   What and who are valued?

Painting, music, lyrics, scripts, scenery, sculpture, day to day language, whatever the people see, interpret, value, and purchase.   What is considered civil?  Inspiring?  Thoughtful?

Art is simply a reflection of what is learned from the schooling of ones young.  What is valued is what will be taught and expected to be valued in the future.   Who does the teaching?

I believe  America’s  “being”  is in decline…..collapse…..is in free fall…..and one often wonders if  the slide is beyond repair…..Who is doing the teaching?

Those who have studied the history of civilizations know the absolute truth  of Arnold Toynbee’s  “Great civilizations are not murdered.  They commit suicide”

Civilization’s  illnesses,  including those with symptoms of suicide, can best be exposed on the couch of its art.   How is the cultural soul expressed in sound, sight and mind?

Is America wavering  on the ledge of hope, or is it falling into  the stench of the pit of rot?   The battle is between traditional values of decency,  justice, and personal responsibility and those devoted to a New Order, in  general, and the collective, the Marxist Democrats led by Barack Obama. 

Mr. Obama has in no way caused the rot and consequent stench.  He is its student and he fosters what he has learned.  He and his Marxist friends in their Ivory Towers from whence he came,  and their Leftwing assaults on  JudeoChristian teachings, supported by the amorality driving Big Business all overwhelming  modern life.  They evolved from people doing “good works” as much as the vile.

Judge for yourselves, citizens of America.  Stop by your museums and galleries.  Open your magazines, review the pictures and writings;  go to the theaters both cinema and stage.  What is valued in the cultural expression?   Where and what are the billboards of its soul?   Why?

How does the art identify good of the culture from the bad?  Or doesn’t it bother?  Should it bother?   Who is honored?  Who is honorable?  What is honor?   What is taught?

Whom do the society’s judges  find guilty?   Why?  What do the teachers teach which might determine guilt?  What stories do they tell in the classroom, on television, in the movie houses and in the newspapers?  What is valued?

Are honesty, integrity,  personal responsibility, search for truth,  and concern for ones fellow man constantly integrated into the being of the culture?  

Or is the high of  culture free at last, excited and mesmerized  by the drives  of the groin for pleasure and profit, politics and religion?   

You answer!  What do we teach our children?   How are our children formed by what they see, and hear, and by whom they are taught to see and hear….Who and what lead them into the better life? 

What is the better life?

Who teaches the young…..the STATE or the CITIZEN FAMILY?
