This is sad.
Two of my favorite quotes from a brilliant writer:
As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.
All in all, I would not have missed this century for the world.
I’m glad you didn’t.
