Dumping Accumulated Mental Debris, or Gearing Down at Fifty.
Farrell, Edmund J.
This paper considers briefly some of the changes in values over the past 50 years. It indicates that the old-fashioned values concerning thrift; the need for human community; the rewards of love, marriage, and fidelity; the spaciousness of the globe; the proper content for English; and the fitness of public education have dwindled in importance as technological and social changes have produced previously unthought of changes in human lives. The paper concludes with the faint hope that perhaps some of those values may yet return with a new vitality. (TJ)
