Cherish the good : Dedicated to promoting the good things in life in the same way people promote money making sites.

In an ideal world people would tell us only about the really great things , but World of Dross

We live in a commercial world where commercial pressure means new stuff has to be continually pushed at us . So unfortunately in these dark ages there is so much falseness and things not worth promoting.
We live in the dark ages and the world's cities are cultural deserts.

Other pressures - vested interests : Established organisations like religions don't like to be challenged

we don't like to admit we are wrong or even different "Oh, I like X as well, but I didn't want say anything cos it's not cool"
