Who gets to choose?

I'm new to this web site. I liked your article, but as we as a society seem so easily to conclude that the past and tradition are of little value, who gets to choose our new direction? Who has the wisdom to determine what's of value? Life requires context and relationship. What do you think gives life context and relationship?

looking towards a neo-victorian tradition

Within our lifetimes I suspect we'll see something along the lines of a "Neo-Victorian" Christmas, where a materialist show, a factory-made abundance of gifts is a sign of poverty and low class, not prosperity.

Gifts of attention and thoughtfulness will be considered far more valuable; objects that indicate a great deal of time or effort spent on the part of the giver will also be esteemed.

The current manifestation of Christmas is the "American Golden Age" of the 1950s playing itself out to its conclusion. A generation or two into the future and things will be very different.
