Hughes, Time magazine's art critic and author here takes on three subjects: the current state of American culture and politics; the arguments for and against multiculturalism in schools and colleges; and what he regards as the declining standards of American art and museums. On the first topic, he attacks Americans for having become a culture of complainers, symbolized by their growing claims to be victims of this or that injustice and their demands for the expansion of rights without concern for duties and obligations. On the second issue, he argues for a sound multiculturalism but rejects Afrocentrism and political correctness that rules out dead, white European males such as Plato and Dante. On the third subject, he sees the decline of American art symbolized by the Mapplethorpe controversy, which elevated a minor photographer into the limelight, and politicaly correct art that believes expressiveness, not quality, is enough.
