why museums fail

dioramas and sketches are not useable life models
replications of village life do not rely upon seasonal hunts
when Eden Project tried to live within rainforest,it failed
Even libraries cast off old volumes for lack of shelf space
and Half Price Books fill dumpsters with your offerings
Unless and until we actually rely upon 78rpm shellac sound recordings
the professed superior qualities of CDs/MP3s/CDRs will be suspect
Those rich in cassettes and 8 tracks know a range of sounds
we hear differently via Napster and itunes
Modes affect manner.Context is all.A living culture is organic
built upon the blood and bones of ancestors
There will always be pirates!Council of Nicea burned texts alien to their dogma
Happily,some were stored in clay jars in caves/found in another age
who had to decipher both Aramaic and sheepskin
Watergate Tapes had 21 minutes missing.Forensics
could not revive that censorship.Dictators pride documents tortures
from Chile ,Germany,Russia,East Germany,Rwanda,Argentina,Greece
We need access to these.Redacted documents compound abuse.
Free speech requires Berrigans and Assanges to Wikileak truth
I want to read the Gospels of Mary Magdelene,Thomas and Judas
What if they were only ever released in selected cinemas-3D
or on iphone 4G?All these artifacts require universal historians
Sir Walter Raleigh was a pirate.He brought tobacco ...
