Moral certainty is always a sign of cultural inferiority. The more uncivilized the man, the surer he is that he knows precisely what is right and what is wrong. All human progress, even in morals, has been the work of men who have doubted the current moral values, not of men who have whooped them up and tried to enforce them.

Home to some 30 art galleries as well as the college-sized Western New Mexico University, Silver City has long been a destination for artists and boasted a thriving arts scene. Most towns would be content to leave it at that, but Silver City has drafted a cultural plan, the primary goal of which is to “support artists, cultural/arts groups, and cultural entrepreneurs” through various efforts. Equally impressive is the city’s commitment to reducing emissions of greenhouse gases.
