Dougald Hine suggests
an approach to tradition that deviates from the default moves of both progressive and conservative currents within modernity. Where they sought either to destroy or to preserve, we might recognize the possibility of composting the traditions that matter to us; tending to their decay in such a way as to contribute to the possibility of life going on.
Some things will be left behind in a future beyond the current madness of modernity. Some of those things will be missed and some will be abandoned gleefully. Some things will be carried forward, but not unchanged. Part of the work to be done is to engage in practices derived from what has come before in a way that makes sense in a new context.
