"“These men were not servile in temper, nor did they consider themselves part of the common herd. They stood on their own feet; independence was their great capital.”" Jul 03, 2018 08:57PM

"“Capital, like labor, was compensated at a rate corresponding to its marginal product. However appropriate and just this arrangement of things might be, it followed that if the capital were owned in large amounts by few individuals, it would be to these that its income would accrue.”" Jul 01, 2018 03:25PM

“Again in combination with the schools, the nation's media reflect the character of society impressed by the displays of power and opulence rather than the play of mind. The ancient Greeks admired in their art what they called the glittering play of "windswift thought." Pericles in his funeral oration boasted not of the weapons or statues collected in Athens, although these were many and beautiful, but of the character of the Athenian citizen--self-reliant, resourceful, public-spirited, loyal, skeptical, marked "by refinement without extravagance and knowledge without effeminacy.”
Lewis Lapham

Tom Robbins
“Louisiana in September was like an obscene phone call from nature[...]Sometimes it even sounded like heavy breathing[...]and on Decatur Street, a mass-transit motor coach named Desire.”
Tom Robbins, Jitterbug Perfume

Robert Frost
“Before I built a wall I'd ask to know what I was walling in or walling out.”
Robert Frost

“Social rank has always been one of the pricier commodities sold in the great American department store, and the ceaseless revision of what constitutes society gives rise to the great American comedy that has been playing continuous performances since the beginning of the Republic. As one generation of parvenu rich acquires the means to buy the patents of nobility, it looks down upon the next generation of arrivistes as clubfooted upstarts.”
Lewis Lapham

“The definition of money as the sublime good--because it can be turned into all other goods--results in the depreciation of all values that do not pay. What is moral is what returns a profit and satisfies the judgment of the bottom line. Freedom comes to be defined, in practice if not in commencement speeches, as the freedom to exploit. This commercial reading of the text of human natures gives rise to a system that puts a premium on crime, encourages the placid acquiescence in the dishonest thought or deal, sustains the routine hypocrisy of politics and proclaims as inviolate the economic savagery otherwise known as the free market or freedom under capitalism. It is no accident that in a society that presumes a norm of violence, whether on the football field or in the conduct of its business, people speak of deals as "killings.”
Lewis Lapham
