It is no longer the stoic world it used to be. The wise one which drew experience from suffering, maybe in view of one of the most suffering hour of their lives. The last one that unites everyone — or at least it should do that. It is no longer a place that unites. A place that moves on profit cannot fail to terrify and divide. It is a mean place, made up of hatred and suspicion, of intolerance and loneliness. And any place evolving in this way needs nothing but medicine. No longer to cure, but to distract and confuse. To prevent and control.
