Cessna's cultural battle

Culture war usually refers to the clash of morality over abortion and trashy TV. A much larger clash, in the background, is between cultural supersystems. This mega-conflict is remarkably explained by an intellectual ordered to the firing squad by the Bolsheviks who escaped and in 1930 became chairman of the Harvard sociology department. Christianity reflects “ideational culture,” Pitirim Sorokin says, but this system vanished nearly down to 2 percent. It is on that small, bright spot of artistic output that Chattanooga sculptor Cessna Decosimo stands. http://nooganomics.com/2012/11/as-4-centuries-of-sensate-culture-fade-decosimo-persists-as-holdout/
