I recently found this on a website.  The author is talking about the current state of polity in the USA.  He prefaces the following statements with the qualifying factor, "if I am right."  I believe the author is right.

1) The power of collective cultural processes to mold people's consciousness (thought and feeling) is enormous, and should be kept in mind as we consider what's happening in our country. (I find myself amazed at how fragile rationality turns out to be.)
2) It is of vital importance that we be alert not only to new things that arise, but also to dramatic shifts in the proportions of things, which can usher in major changes in a society using only old ingredients.

love always,
