Technology births and kills culture

Technical progress yields leisure, which is liberation from the deperate pursuit of food and shelter.   Leisure makes culture possible.  Culture flourishes,  which means the heart of man elaborates itself like a seed unfolding into a tree with good and evil branches.    As culture develops, then, it’s parts are increasingly hostile to each other and in the end, the center cannot hold.  The basis for common culture disappears into plurality and the culture breaks apart and dies.
