Thoroughly entertaining and as relevant today as was back when originally written in 1945. Today's political and technical priorities have deviated from moral guidance of the democratic civil guidance to those of an elite. The continued expansion and drive of the few have created a social crisis never seen in these current generations.

Quotes Duane Liked

Lewis Mumford
“Ritual, art, poesy, drama, music, dance, philosophy, science, myth, religion are all as essential to man as his daily bread: man's true life consists not alone in the work activities that directly sustain him, but in the symbolic activities which give significance both to the processes of work and their ultimate products and consummations.”
Lewis Mumford, The Condition of Man
