The current Progressive mission is to erase history the Conservative rearguard is to preserve some knowledge of it. (See also here.) There are front lines passing through every formerly-Christian Western nation, and each formerly-Christian Eastern nation, too like the old one running through each human heart. But today I am reviewing the visible external civil war, only.
When we say, “Nothing is perfect in this world,” we do not mean perfection in the sense of “the perfect world of scientific socialism.” (I lived with a socialist once, and would goad him in the kitchen with remarks like, “In the perfect world of scientific socialism, that toast would not have burnt,” & c.)
"To my mind," writes Atwan in his article, "the best essays are deeply personal (that doesn't necessarily mean autobiographical) and deeply engaged with issues and ideas. And the best essays show that the name of the genre is also a verb, so they demonstrate a mind in process--reflecting, trying-out, essaying."
Questions to ask. It is good to begin by asking students if most people like music, if so, why do they like it. If most people like music, why don&rsquo t they all like the same music or why is not all music equally pleasing to people? What sort of purpose does music serve in human life? Does it have a practical purpose? How does music affect human emotions? Does music affect the musicians who are making it differently than the audience that is listening to it? What makes one style of music different from another and what makes music the same? How does music change over time and why has it changed? How have technological innovations like the microphone, the sound recording, radio, and the Internet changed music? How does music affect watching a visual image?

There is a gentleman whom I shall call “Z.” for that is his initial. He is a lawyer who would go far, were he not also a Catholic. The product of Ontario schools, he has become starkly aware that he was cheated of an education. He has wife and childers now, and little leisure, but in each free moment he tries to “fill his gaps.” Alas, like mine, there are gaps within his gaps, and so he flits like a butterfly through the extensive meadow. Donate some duplicate odd volume of a Loeb, and he grabs it lustily as another key to how everything fits together, another door in the treasure vaults.
But Thucydides had the generosity, and attentiveness of spirit, to grasp him in his very largeness great artist among strategists and tacticians, victorious as an Alexander wherever he led men immensely strong, courageous, eloquent, flamboyant but finally only in his own cause. Lesser authors diminish him, even when they praise Thucydides can find the small within the large.
Although jazz has made use of many musical structures including blues, tango, African and Indian music its most basic form is the 87-bar format of the American pop song, many of which by such noted composers as Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, the Gershwin Brothers, Rodgers and Hart, Vernon Duke, and others, constitute the foundational repertoire of jazz. Gershwin&rsquo s &ldquo The Man I Love&rdquo is a standard example of such a song with its A-A-B-A typology. This song and most of Gershwin&rsquo s most popular tunes are standard fare for jazz musicians even today.
