Without reliance upon the defeated past, the techno-optimist looks toward the new things that we make up to run the world, and these new things could fail. Their failure could destroy us utterly. In another direction lies the way of retreat into nostalgia, or to express it more positively a reliance on tradition. Here hope takes the form of dogmas and imagery from a past epoch in which culture was, at least from a present perspective, organized and meaningful. This stance is generally less attractive to Americans than is the futurist one, but the nostalgist option does harmonize with other parts of the American myth, as is demonstrated in its adherents' use of such language as ''the American way of life," "traditional values," "plain 51 52 common sense," and other patriotic and agrarian expressions.
