One Cheer for Michigan against Notre Dame.(because I am Buckeye) What is really counter-cultural would be an examination of football as Lived Art (which it certainly is as a team sport that is copyrighted.)
Of course the value of this “art” radically decays, much like Dali’s melting clocks…and we all know that Dali was prior art to the 1960′s. Now Dali, that is a joker who tried to start the fire in 1926! Of course back in those days the school masters rolled fat on Hugo Black and issued Fatwa’s like Justice Bork fleeing Gomorrah, so Dali was not the philosopher who knew the time and the place for his revolution. Albeit at this time there was also Sartre, fighting the structures of academic rationalization(The eternal Bork+Black), and pranking the MSM of his day for its worship of scientism: Charles Lindbergh’s successful New York-Paris flight!
And nowadays no one really cares unless Jonny Manziel thinks himself Dali. Anything really better than Ayn Rand as the art of polemic?
Interesting to listen to Ayn Rand’s criticism of Charles Lindenburg.
“So the thinkers of the Sixties ended up empowering further the technocrats they opposed, by contributing to the emptying out and so the discrediting of liberal education.”
Very bad for all of us. And on a personal note, for someone like me, the cost of this is pretty high.
Bad for all us all. Carl reminds us, though, that we still can enjoy the music.
