In light of the Oscars (more from Peter Maurin)

A bit of wisdom from Peter Maurin from his Easy Essay "Prostitution of the Theatre"

In the Middle Ages
the Theatre
was considered
as an efficient way
of preaching,
They liked to produce
Mystery Plays.
They aimed to preach
and not to pander.
Pandering to the crowd
has brought the degradation
of the theatre.
The Theatre started
in the Church.
The Theatre has ended
in the gutter.

Pax et bonum
