We’re a culture that has lost the vitality and drive of its males to video games and comic books. I’ve seen the TED talks. I don’t care. I’d like to see even 10% of that devotion put into making art instead of consuming pop culture. Do the same with our compulsions toward sports, action movies, politics, and religious fervor, and we’d have a cultural Rennaissance of Greco-Roman proportions.
