Towards Better Democracy

Good words, well written, better the world. Good literature betters the world immeasurably.

The Aesthete’s Tenets


“Letting my freak flag fly high”

David Crosby, Almost cut my hair

Decades ago, actually when I was a younger man, I read Kenneth Clark’s book, Another Part of the Wood and adopted the tenets spoken within it.

Some of you may know Kenneth from his BBC Production, Civilization and the book which accompanied. The book is one of the finest of its kind, maybe even the finest, of its kind. Should the topic interest you, and you have not read Civilizations, you are urged to do so.

Here is Kenneth’s formulation for a life well led:

The pursuit of truth,

The maintenance of happiness,

And the creation of beauty
