They have been raised in a relativistic cultural vacuum where chronology and sequence as well as distinctions of value have been lost or jettisoned by politically-correct educators” says Camille Paglia, professor of humanities and media studies at the University of Arts in Philadelphia, in this week’s Sunday Times magazine.
That’s a shame. I quite like Lady Gaga.
