Off late the term ‘decadence‘ comes to mind.
It seems mainstream culture is unable / unwilling, to respond adequately to current pressing issues. This could be labelled as decadent, in the sense of a self destructive response. Respondents regarding this blog can file themselves under this category. In fact, it might prove illustrative to read the reactions to previous postings and compare them to the subject matter presented.
Fortunately there are other currents in society, which are open to a regime where potentials are stimulated to unfold.
As I see it, a regional format addressing contemporary icons has best chances for resilience to unfold.
Changing the icons, is changing conceptions of the Good. And that is what bears strong potential of making a significant contribution to the unfoldment of potentials.
