Our Increasingly Unrecognizable Culture
Quin Hillyer certainly has it right in his column titled At Sea in an Alien Culture, Where ‘Normal’ Is Defined as ‘Deviant’. And of course, where deviant is seen as normal. He describes it perfectly here, "In short, we’re told that so much of what we know is good and normal is actually bad, while so much that’s objectively awful is actually no big deal or even something worth admiring. Nothing looks the same. The values, the culture, the standards, the frames of reference: All are skewed, tumped over, deconstructed, disorienting."
