America’s vulgar and militaristic “culture”
D’EVOLUTION OF AMERICAN CULTURE
Oversexed, overweight and undernourished – spiritually and intellectually – masses led by beasts in priests’ clothing
The D’EVOLUTION cartoon in the header of this editorial was published as a Jan 2018 cover by a leading German magazine Der Spiegel. It makes a case that America is devolving – going backward, not forward. And I can add, the country has probably never been more polarized than it is now.
That’s a political view. But where politics go, culture can’t be far behind. And in some cases, culture has been actually leading the way – backward, appealing to our most base and primitive instincts.
