The Original League

  • The March of the Davidsbndler against the Philistines
    The first battle of the culture war was fought in 19th century Germany among composers and musicians, who were the most respected public figures of their time. On one side were men and women who believed artists were part of a great and beautiful Tradition, and their music should reflect and honor it. On the other side were men and women who saw artists as political revolutionaries, applying their talents to greater social and political aims. The music revolutionaries won, but the war isn't over. Instead, the culture wars have spread to encompass almost every aspect of contemporary life. On one side there are men and women who seek to build a contemporary society that respects and values Tradition. On the other are revolutionaries who want to see the world remade. In this war, the League of David sides with Tradition.
