1) a society's worldview shapes its values which lead to its choices which lead to its actions which lead to its destiny.
2) a worldview of unreason leads to values incompatible with happiness which leads to misery.
3) a demographics that favors the worldview of libtardism is a demographic and a worldview of unreason
4) the libtard worldview of this demographic,if unchecked, is leading the country to unhappiness.
The way to check this negative libtard worldview is to reach and direct the minds of the general public in our current era, so that they will posses the proper worldview.The proper worldview has to take the form of concretes of a special kind: concretes that incorporate and communicate fundamental abstractions, but do so largely by implication - while in explicit terms they engage people's interest and assent by offering them specific items of knowledge and/or value they do understand and desire.
Only cultural products perform this dual task. They alone present a worldview in a form accessible to minds oriented to concretes, concretes such as the stories people enjoy,or the pictures they see on TV or in the movies, or the music they here,or teacher's way of teaching a child how to read, or the way politicians debate the issues on TV.
Cultural works are the proselytizers of worldviews. If the cultural works are accepted by a society not necessarily in theory, but in practice-in the form of purchases, enrollments, votes, applause, and the like, reflecting widespread approval-then the idea they embody reveal a society's actual, functioning worldview, whether generally acknowledged of not. And that worldview will be its destiny.
A most interesting and sobering read. Thank you for that.
I agree. A tragic lack of rednecks is one of the weaknesses of LOTR, that otherwise outstanding work. I imagine Jack O'Neil wandering through with his classic Jacksonian snark and roflmao, figuratively.
