I lament

I lament…..

……. the death of the traditional bookstore and its replacement by the superstore.
……. our infatuation with materialism.
……. our need to complicate everything.
……. the idea that bigger is better.
……. that we criticize before we attempt to understand.
……. that we have chosen idiots to worships ie. rock stars, actors and sports figures.
……. the contempt we show for the classics.
……..that money governs American elections.
……..the crushing of the free spirit.
……..the age of greed.
……..corruption and poverty.
……..our pettiness.
……..the fast pace of life.
……..that we haven’t discovered a suitable global ideology to replace capitalism, socialism and communism.
……..the domination of the Republican Party by Social Conservatives.
