Gregory Wolfe On Art and Culture

One of the best interviews I’ve read on the place of conservatism and its approach to our culture: Jeremy Beer interviews Gregroy Wolfe of Image magazine. Please read this.

An excerpt:

I am not about to say that things haven’t gotten bad in Western civilization over the last 100 years, but on the other hand, one of the things a deep conservatism knows is that things are always going to hell in a handbasket. It knows how to balance tearing down with building up. I once wrote a piece called “Why I Am a Conscientious Objector in the Culture Wars.” The argument I made was that if both sides were so busy spraying toxic chemicals on each other’s crops, by the time they were through, nothing would be able to grow.
