Liberals, Conservatives and the Arts


At the outset, I must say that I have serious issues with Christian Science as founded by Mary Baker Eddy. it is a pseudo-Christian cult and not evangelical Christianity.

Having said that, I must commend their newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor. Their reputation for good journalism and thorough reporting is well deserved. The article linked here is an examination of the power of the arts — especially cinema — and how liberals have used the arts to advance their agenda. Conservatives need to rediscover this much neglected area, especially when thinking about how to have more influence in the marketplace of ideas.
