Liberal Arts and Money

I've read a number of articles recently on the subject here, liberal arts and money, and myself, being both a Catholic Christian and a free-market capitalist, was drawn to many thoughts on the area.  Many people have bemoaned society's non-use for them or their job prospects.  One article even featured a woman with a Ph.D. on welfare.  The following paragraphs should outline a lot of my ideas on the liberal arts, man's well-being, money and capitalism.

Fornication and the Need for Ritual

Sex appears to be very popular in the media nowadays, or at any other time period.  Why is it that we are so obsessed as a society with sex?  Why is it that all our three minute pop songs are about sex?  Why are our young people in such lustful relationships (besides puberty)?  Has every generation had this fixation?  Is it mere lust, physical pleasure and human nature?  Is it an unavoidable element of the human experience or is it something our modern times have particularly created.  These questions are rhetorical.

Tradition!

I think the movie Fiddler on the Roof is required viewing for this blog.  The song "Tradition" and accompanying montage give a lot to think about.
