Thread Name: What is The Tradition?
Subject: RE: What is The Tradition?
I don't know of any culture other than the English 'folk' movement that makes this strange distinction between 'revivalist' (to be despised) and 'traditional' (to be revered). The really strange thing is that when pressed, the users of these terms produce definitions so nebulous that one can very quickly provide an example that refutes either definition.
