Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

The most fundamental values of our culture are telling—and embarrassing.  §

Self-definition.
Autonomy.
Inclusivity.
Wellness.
Safety.
Empowerment.
Justice.
Fairness.

These are the values of the West right now, in the U.S. and elsewhere. And let’s be real—they’re stupid. Vapid. Trite. Dubious and dubitable. Wilting and impotent.

Read them again. It’s high school social life elevated to the level of cultural framework and Weltanschauung. There is no room in it for heroes, great men, great moments, or battles against evils of any kind, including the evil of mediocrity.

Tragic and suffocating.
