“If we capitulate to superstition, or greed, or stupidty we can plunge our world into a darkness deeper than time between the collapse of classical civilization and the Italian Renaissance.”
Superstition completely and totally dominates our sociopolitical structure as a whole; greed is catered to unendingly with the bank bailout saving companies who extorted and ruined the lives of home-owners and investors, with a sum of money greater than the budget of NASA’s entire existence; and lastly, stupidity dominates society—turn on the TV, go on the internet, or talk with any random person you meet and they will admonish thought and individualism in favor of ignorance and consumerism.
We are in the apocalypse of thought, feeling, humanity and art. We are the children of the end of humanity. You and I and all whom we know are in the aftermath of civilization. We are far beyond the point of our salvation.
Welcome to the modern world, where anything that requires thought is automatically dismissed as unintuitive.
