My view is simple: I never really thought Anderson had a case, partly because American culture is so deeply niched these days, I have no idea what it means to talk about American culture, or any shared culture, except that which is dictated by corporate entities. The only shared culture we have, it seems to me, is what we buy.
And, in brief, I have a really hard time taking any argument that conservatives have
"won" any culture war in a society in which pornography, as 60 Minutes reported last night, is consistently the most profitable sector of countless businesses, from hotel chains to cable and satellite providers to the Internet.
Yeah. That's a victory for you.
