Writing and Culture

It's writing, that relatively new human activity, that brought on nearly every damn thing else--the development of societies, governments, freedom, mercy, empathy outside time and across distances, the advancements of science, the whole spectrum of the arts of civilization, including elements that may destroy it all in the end. And finally the real matter of alleviating so many ills that afflict us, is the need to affect culture--more than politics. Change a culture for the better, and the politics will change for the better.

--Writer Robert Bausch
