Ropke: Impoverishment

“[T]he disappearance of so many things, great and small, which lend charm, dignity, and poetry to life deprives writers and artists of rewarding and stimulating subjects and so explains the undeniable impoverishment of modern art, in literature and painting alike.”

– Wilhem Röpke, A Humane Economy (pp. 87)
