Holiday Reprise: Why Catholicism Is Beating Objectivism's Ass ... Still
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Tue, 2008-12-02 07:20
There's no mystery whatsoever about this. Take this in:
Yes, even though the performance is fashionably homogenised and rushed, the beauty of Schubert's Ave Maria—glorious music set to evil lyrics—remains irresistible to anyone with a soul. Until it can answer this, Objectivism will languish. Until we have not just a bunch of Halley concertos, but an understanding of their objective necessity and superiority, we will get nowhere. Hate to sound like a cracked record, but we have not been found wanting in epistemology, economics or politics. It's the esthetics, Stoopid. As I've said so many times, it's time for Objectivists to take The Romantic Manifesto seriously. More than that—to affirm unabashedly the objective superiority of Romantic music.
