We Don’t Have Those Anymore, Either

A thirst for adventure. A desire to be uprooted and wild. A desire for a return to traditional family values. Tradition (or are we making new traditions?). Class. Society (or are we building a new society?). (Who is ‘We’?). Prestige. Presidents. Monarchs. Priests. Lawyers.  Dog-Walkers. Landscape Architects. Sitcoms. Movie theaters. Professional athletes.  Professional dancers. Professional actors. Professional writers. Professional TV personalities. YouTube Stars. YouTube. Secretaries. College Professors. College. The American Dream (or is it something different now?). America (or is it something else now?). What’s the difference between gone and transformed? What’s the difference between memory and history and myth and dream?
