An excellent, thought-provoking review that reveals the true depth to which American and most Western Cultures have sunk. Witty, studied and considerate, this should be a 'must-read' for anyone who wonders just how things are as they are culturally.
Morris deals impressively with the idea that elitism is somehow wrong and stresses that this quality is what brings out the best in society. I agree completely with this argument and also that in its absence, the dilution of ability in what we do will only increase as a culture.
Put aside a couple of days to read cover to cover (slowly).
