I have appeared to slide off the rails again. It remains customary to retreat to history in these instances. This hasn't changed. My source this recent time was Clive Bell, a favorite of mine. His essays on civilization are always intriguing. I don't always agree with his mocking the achievements of the Romans, but alas he does in succeed in charming me every time.

While I certainly understand the retreat to history - a struggle for firmament - you turn to Clive Bell? A founder of the formalist theory of art, a member of the Bloomsbury Group? Why don't you just go ahead and shack-up with Obama - you and your elitist attitudes.
