Your views of our culture, and of traditionalism in general, are simply arresting. You wrote:Laura Wood’s remark makes me realize something I hadn’t thought about before. It reminds of the joy and exultation I felt on a couple of occasions in my youth marching in parades. A parade is a ritualized expression of the consciousness that life is good, that we are a part of it, and that we are participating together in it, which lifts us up into a collectively shared joy. And parades today seem mostly about promoting freakdom and anti-life.
