Strange are the times we live in: Religious fundamentalism is on the rise, medievalism
making a comeback, religious terror and tyranny becoming common, and our politics is theater to entertain the credulity of people. And so ever foreign in is the concept of rationality, reason, and common sense, the jewels by which humankind's mind is elevated to greatness. It seems to me the masses, overwhelmed by life and dogmatic beliefs want simple solutions to life's complex problems. To escape from reality and into reality shows, facebook sound bytes and tweets is a path towards destruction.
