The disconnect between artistic beauty and social recognition (with regards to literature in particular) has vexed me for some time. Now, I feel, I'm finally beginning to suss it out.

No artist is guaranteed any kind of recongition for his work. But that'd be a lot easier to take if the stuff that does get attention didn't seem so cheap and junky. Why the disconnect?

Your Monday Lore & Logos story! This week's is called Fair Trade. It's the story of a man and his dog. Well, not a dog, actually. More of a green-furred, talking, six-handed... So maybe not a dog at all. Let me know what you think. And next week's Lore & Logos will conclude the series.

Must we choose between a culture of individual whims and a culture of rigid hierarchies, or is there something in between?

Hi everyone. I recently penned a blog post that I feel might be interesting to members of this community. It seems to me to fit thematically. In the US and Europe, our cultures have generally become dominated by individual wish-fulfillment. But we never seemed to stop to consider that individual whims themselves might be suspect. The disruption/debasement of literature by mega-corporation Amazon is only the most recent example. Is there a healthier option, or are must we choose between two forms of domination: the interests of others, or our own ignorance?

Some thoughts on book culture and culture more generally. Our modern culture worships the individual and derives value from aggregate whims... but we don't seem to consider that individuals might have unhealthy or underdeveloped whims.
