If culture too expansive …

Without public access, a culture becomes dead, an inert shell that serves as a shill for profit, while too rarefied and remote to thrive. > J. Goodman. https://aeon.com.

The quaestores of modern times use health, religion, and access to sports and art just like those of the Middle Ages used salvation: to exploit people by pricing what they value too high. Only by exposing these cultural monopolies can we prevent what we cherish from moving out of reach.” Is costly culture endangered culture ?
