I don’t know ’bout you but I see a lot of similarities from this explanation/essay/video to what society looks like today. It’s been like this probably always, but it’s not so subtle anymore… at least if you are listening and looking.
There’s a great quote in the comments of this video:
“When the whole world is running towards a cliff, he who is running in the opposite direction appears to have lost his mind.” -C.S. Lewis
