"Part of the contemporary predicament of an old one; it is that we cannot have everything: we cannot live in a society that is materially rich, individualistic, open to all currents of ideas, one that allows and encourages free expression and mobility of every kind, where we can shop around for our favorite religion, experiment with new identities, and sample available options and life styles and at the same time also enjoy the benefits of stable communal ties, sustaining beliefs, taken-for-granted values, and a solid sense of purpose."

...Paul Hollander

Saw this quote on Unca's blog. I thought it was a great description of the tradeoffs inherent in our modern society.
