Veritas et Sapientia-The Sadness Of David Bowie Choosing Vulgarity Over Truth

Mandeville, LA – “The saddest thing about the life of David Bowie is not the years he spent abusing his body sexually and chemically, but the years he spent failing to see the real presence of goodness, truth, and beauty because of what might be called the myopia of masks. This myopia was exemplified in an interview he gave to the Daily Telegraph in the 1990s in which he claimed to have experienced everything that Western Civilization could offer. The very fact that he could believe such a self-evident falsehood illustrated the singular blindness with which he was afflicted throughout his life. The pathetic truth is that Bowie never experienced anything of the true life of Western Civilization, which is to be found in the great conversation which has animated it for almost three thousand years. One will search in vain in any of his work for an engagement with the works of Homer, Virgil, Boethius, Dante, Chaucer, or Shakespeare; one will search in vain for an engagement with the ideas of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, or Aquinas; one will search in vain for any understanding whatsoever of the Christian faith, which is the very breath of life with which Western Civilization breathes. Perhaps, most damnable of all, one will search in vain for any sign of awe in the presence of the beauty of nature.” – Joseph Pearce, The Imaginative Conservative
