Excellent article. Thanks. I've been reading many things in this vein lately. It's a shame, really, because I no longer believe anything will happen to change our accelerating spiral down into the toilet of history. Like Yeats said, "The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity." Greed has taken over. It's like watching a bunch of junkies. They either hit bottom and wake the **** up, or die. Unfortunately, they're determined to drag everybody else down with them.
