Subject: They Didn't, We Shouldn't... But Who Cares?
Thanks for your response. Now I really hate to differ with someone who agrees with my view of the re-enacting community; it happens rarely these days - the agreeing with. >wink< However, You were correct with your first assessment... I was on a rant!
Look again at what Webster's Dictionary defines as esprit d' corps: "the common spirit existing in the members of a group and inspiring enthusiasm, devotion, and strong regard for the honor of the group" and you'll see that ranting is exactly what I was doing.
When we re-enact, we should strive to re-create, not re-design.
