The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

I am NOT a US Country Music fan (at least not recent 'redneck-pop') BUT "The Highwaymen"  (Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson) did create a musical and philosophical masterpiece here.  Not "totally" within the usual Victorian "Steampunk" time period, but listen to the words and you will be affected. Art should make you think and feel. This piece DOES.

For a "less Steam/Country"  from basically the same "good ol' boys" Plus Bob Dylan and Tom Petty (before and after the passing of Mr. Cash) check out "The Travelling Willbury's" for some more excellent music

The Wilburys were Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty. Randy Bachman just did an entire episode of Vinyl Tap on the Wilburys (last night, in fact!)
