"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

That white picket fence « Previous | |Next »
July 10, 2003

The white picket fence does not go away does it? It's reference to the work/family divide continues to haunt political life.

Now the white picket fence stands for domestic bliss and a simpler home life. We have not eagerly embraced the high-tech lifeof digital tv and phone/camera moblies. We recoil from the drudgery of our mothers daily routine, but long for something more meaningful----the old things that once made home life so comfortable and relaxed.
Knitting is so in fashion.

Is it just on '50s sentimentality and nostalgia? Or is it a case of traditions in our commoin life being used to critique the mode of life of the free market?
