Today's primary political and cultural conflict is, [Virginia] Postrel says, between people, mislabeled "progressives," who crave social stasis, and those, paradoxically called conservatives, who welcome the perpetual churning of society by dynamism.
Stasists see Borders succumb to e-books (and Amazon) and lament the passing of familiar things. Dynamists say: Relax, reading is thriving. In 2001, the iPod appeared, and soon stores such as Tower Records disappeared. Who misses them?
But I am sure all those stasists are devout believers in evolution by means of natural selection, which is a an ex example of order emerging from apparent chaos.
P.S. Many years ago I copyedited a book by Stanley I. Kutler called Privilege and Creative Destruction: The Charles River Bridge Case. I'd like to say I made some contribution to it, but the fact is it was the cleanest manuscript I ever saw. It is an excellent book and highly recommended.
