I might say we live in the aftermath of the Cold War
So many other wars have been desired and been granted since then.
There’s something in the nature of civilisation
That has made this inevitable
So I read.
The masters have freedom to invent and to create
The masses are slaves
Made more comfortable by TV and other soothers.
Think you are an individual?
Then try to leave a hospital before the doctors and managers decide you are ready
Intriguingly, those who do live longer than the passive.
Try to be old and untidy and “Carers” will be supplied
Who can throw out all your books to make dusting easier.
If you can afford a large house,naturally you can have a library
Otherwise you are a “Compulsive book buyer”
Economics determines your mental health in other ways
Science,how can it be science when they can’t experiment?
They just want the glow of numbers to make them superior.
The aftermath of work is leisure,if you can afford it.
The aftermath of sex depends on many things and leads to others.
From pregnancy to death is not so far even now.
The aftermath of Xmas is debt,divorce or disappointment.
Unless you are of the spiritual type.
Then it could be hubris.
