CONTEXT – Tradition is dead? What next?

Tradition is a utopian device because at the time of any hey day all it ever was, was hard work, doing a good, thorough job. Only the romantic glance back creates the need for such terms as Tradition or Classical… I could be wrong but it’s now just a Google Adwords ‘Keyword’.
