Pay attention to the artists

Standard

To understand this cusp of a new century-marked as it is both by the sociological reality of the information age and the philosophical movement we call postmodernism-we have to pay attention to the novelist, filmmaker and the musician who are culturally upstream,as it is in their stories, movies, and songs where we will feel the yearnings of what human life is and ought to be. Whether staged or celluloid, in print or on computer disks, they are fingers to the wind. Why? Artists get there first.
