Dem Club: Sid Albright–Our Changing Culture

Our Changing CultureThis Friday at the Iron Horse on Sherman Avenue the Dem Club will continue looking at history and its impact on present days.  We welcome Syd Albright, author and historian.  Mr. Albright appears in the Coeur d’Alene Press’s History Corner.  In fact on Sunday 2/10/19 he had a most interesting article entitled “Historic Walls from Jericho to Mexico – do they work?”  This Friday, Noon, he’ll be discussing Our Changing Culture.  Another great presentation.  Please try to be there.  Don’t let a little snow keep you locked up inside.  Get out, enjoy friends and fellow progressive thinkers.  No time for dreamers, we need visionaries.  Join us.

The Coeur d’Alene Press describes Mr. Albright:  “Consider, in his career he’s been a producer, college teacher, scuba instructor, press secretary, vice president and manager. He’s a writer, editor and biographer.  We haven’t even mentioned his real passion, which happens to be history.”

Albright, is fascinated by history. And the Post Falls man does his best to make it fascinating to others, too.   He say, “We learn from history – from both triumphs and failures. I wish more people today – especially the politicians – had a greater appreciation of our history and our cultural roots. By drifting away from them – like America is doing today – we are sailing into dangerous waters. There is a natural evolution of our culture, but there are also certain aspects that should remain unchanged because they are good and because they have always worked. Those are the pillars of our culture, our nation and the very character of our people.”
