I have written from time to time that the notion of “love” in our present day culture is a poor shadow of its former self. We are loosing a robust notion of love, along with what love does and does not do, and we are replacing it with a shallow and egotistical sense of personal happiness and individual rights.
I ran across a couple of good articles which deal with this issue through this note on Mere Comments. The articles, in Boundless, are here and here.
For the more adventurous, I would recommend this Interview with Satan. If you have not experienced The Door, be prepared for a heavy dosage of satire.
