    AS MASONIC CULTURE EVOLVES

    in Lifestyle

    Not so very long ago, students enrolled in university were taught rhetoric.  That was of a time when the skill of persuasion was highly valued.  It taught the difference between argument and debate.  To do this, the student learned how to control their emotion. When an opponent approached the topic with temper, his effectiveness was lost- lose of such control was a vulnerability- the poker player with an obvious 'tell'.  Why bring this up Graham? Why now? Good questions that deserve good answers.   Today, we are on the cusp of a masonic cultural event. We don't need to doubt whether change is coming. It's already begun. We never have developed a narrative.  How do we know?   What is masonry? Ask ten masons that question and we get eleven opinions.  Why?  Because we work without a narrative that describes and operationalizes our philosophy.  One of the rules of engagement for our fellows is to avoid controversy. If you have witnessed  what happens when such matters are discussed, you know what I mean.   Emotion uncontrolled burdens the topic and attempts to stifle discussion of the merit of all sides of the issues. Our narrative may be in fragments simply because we have not promoted the artfulness of rhetoric.  Do you think it is stunning that we have a culture hundreds of years old, rich in lessons of ethics, principles, values, purpose, science and the arts and have yet to learn how to debate?  Without a form to deal with controversial findings and opinions, we make difficult the capacity to acknowledge the evolution of masonic-culture.   Yesterday I sat with a very earnest young mason- young only in years but not judgment. He responded to something said at the table with the muscularity that is typical of a group of men.  BUT- after he had let us know he held serious opinions, he was gratefully receptive to debate- restore rhetoric I say!

    Art Critic James Cooper on the Culture Wars

    in Art

    What are the culture wars and how can we win them? Join us as noted art scholar and critic James Cooper talks about art and culture today.


    James Cooper is an art scholar and noted critic. He is the Founding Director of the Newington-Cropsey Cultural Studies Center. He is the Editor of American Arts Quarterly. He is the author of several books, including The Hudson River School and the Moral Landscape.  Mr. Cooper served on the President’s Committee for National Standards for Arts Education K-12. He has been a vocal critic of government funding  to the arts. He was the first to challenge the obscenity, lack of quality of grants awarded by the National Endowment for the Arts.  Subsequently he was appointed to serve as a juror on several juries for the National Endowment for the Arts, and met with many congressmen. Cooper believes that EXCELLENCE and BEAUTY are the criteria for public art and education, not political correctness or propaganda. He thinks that the American people have not been alerted to the CULTURE WAR that is deconstructing the core values of America. His goal is cultural renewal.
