Stanley Diamond

The Uses of the Primitive:

"contemporary states forge or ignore history; create political myths which propagate the official version of human nature and an inevitable past that wholly justifies the present. The capacity to create primitive myths that explore the ambivalence of man, and the incessant struggle for a common human identity simply withers like an unused human muscle."

the author finds himself rediscovering the flaw in the monolith--human nature--and the necessity of a more existential realization through a more primitive expression.
