Forbidden Remembrances

"There is no place for nostalgia in a progressive world. The new school not only ignores nostalgia, but condemns it. The world of yesterday is becoming an isolated world of remembrances and echoes so forbidden that, to decorate the present with it, you must often do so with a sense of humor or belong to a select group . . . such is the chance an individualist inevitably runs." ~ from American Yesterday, by Eric Sloane

Moderns despise individualists.
