In Search of Dignity

Today I read this column by David Brooks for the New York Times. Regardless of your political affiliation, what do you think of his points about "the dignity code" and its demise amongst those in the public sphere today?

(Is it ironic that I should ask you this via my own Weblog, a medium that itself exemplifies the liberation of feelings and trend toward public confession that Brooks decries as having contributed to the decline of dignity?)

P.S. In part I like his column for its use of words such as "rectitude," "reticent," "dispassionate," "zealotry," "ruinously," "obliterated," "artifice," "equipoise," and "constancy." I love literate people!
