How does one change the mentality of the literary establishment using gentle means?
Will New York, Vanity Fair, Vogue, et.al., voluntarily cease their endless worship of money, their celebrations of snobbery?
Will the publishing companies, on their own, stop force-feeding young people snob-based garbage, to give them instead works reflecting this nation's democratic ideals?
Will American literature, by itself, with its novels, stories, poems, and criticism, return to its days of scope, relevance, understanding, compassion, and greatness?
My experience is that the minds of the Overclass which dominates our literature are made of unmoving concrete. I'd love to be proved wrong.
