It is evidently, like many of our most important values, an abstract concept that refers to an objective if somewhat elusive reality, like Arete, Beauty, Conscience, Constitution, Divinity, Evolution, Expectation, Fate, Golden Mean, Goodness, Happiness, Harmony, Higher Power, Invisible Hand, Justice, Knowledge, Liberty, Life, Love, Providence, Righteous Succession, Truth, Utility, Virtue, and Wisdom, to name just a few.
I suppose your average Wikipediot truly believes that the Wikipediot notion of Kitsch Krowd Kultur fits in here, and that suggestion is, like most Wikipediot notions, Komical in the X-treme.
