Bhutan: Change comes to the Himalayan “Happy Kingdom” | DW Documentary

When, in my village, after the war of '14, electricity was introduced, it was a unanimous murmur from the peasants. "It's the devil, it's the devil," we could hear everywhere. When it was finally installed in the churches (there were three of them!), it was a generalized dismay. “It's the Antichrist, it's the end of… Continue lendo Bhutan: Change comes to the Himalayan “Happy Kingdom” | DW Documentary

“Art & Civilization” – John DEWEY

Art is more moral than moralities. For the latter either are, or tend to become, consecrations of the status quo, reflections of custom, reënforcements of the established order.
