Establishment “Subversives” and Pseudo Counter Culture

I look forward to the backlash against the twerking idiocy passing for culture, and I hope it comes soon. I’m too cynical to hope for a real honest-to-God Renaissance, but a return to pre-beat poetry faux-counter-culture literacy can’t be too much to ask for, can it?
