Can't Stop Won't Stop

More country criticism perhaps but I encourage folks here to check out these two threads over at Rod Dreher's blog at _The American Conservative_, both the various linked articles, his own thoughts and especially the many comments. (You're also going to figure out who I am on there pretty easily, I admit, given I mention a certain xhuxk at one point.) An interesting amount of stuff to chew on.
I'd especially recommend this comment, which I suspect few here will find surprising but which is nonetheless expressed very well and concisely:

skipping over the posters like a stone, I agree with the libertarian-to-liberal insofar as he hears the conservative-traditional older person confronted with differences in younger generations of own family, but also, country does adapt, necessarily. Even in acting, working, playing the same way, eventually it gets heard differently, even hears itself differently as time change and memories accumulate, adapting as they pile in together. It always adapts in someway, even in reacting against changes in other forms of pop music. Pop and art and/or folk processes.
