Culture in decline

I'm back, trawling through emails and post. Much to post here, which I will do soon. But just for now, I notice someone has written a nice review of the book on Amazon, to which they tag on some lyrics which turn out, on investigation, to be by Joni Mitchell:
In every culture in decline
Watchful ones among the slaves
Know all that is genuine
Will be scorned and conned and cast away
We are, I suppose, the 'watchful ones among the slaves.' Somebody's got to do it. It's not a bad job.
