No Judgement

Being judges (without a jury, mind) is becoming ingrained into our culture. We're constantly told that our opinion counts, we're encouraged to comment, to vote, to Tweet, to share 'what's on your mind.'

Is Culture the New Class?

Time was when everyone knew their place, and being cultured usually involved having a cut- glass accent and a daddy with deep pockets. You were either a toff, in which case you knew about art history and the classics, or common, where your world wasn't so much a stage, but more of a Shakespearean tragedy.
