“[Our culture] has run its course, which is morally, aesthetically and spiritually bankrupt.” ~Ann Glyn-Jones
“Despite all our technology, our entertainment, our consumerism, our chemical enhancements, we’re more miserable than ever before. Our existential dread is more pronounced than ever before. Educational, intellectual and material ease has manifested civilizational malaise and a lack of transcendent purpose…

There’s only so far that quasi-religious devotion to yoga, Starbuck’s pumpkin spice lattes and Whole Foods kale shakes can go. The latest IPhone can only distract you from the nagging voice of conscience for so long. Endlessly consuming products will never satiate the soul.
We live in the ruins of a civilization that has lost faith in itself.” ~Paul Joseph Watson
