Food for thought
Progress and the industrial revolution were supposed to bring a greater degree of civilization, but did that really happen? The idea of being a civilized and evolved society is dangerous because it prevents us from really becoming one. Politicians are only able to take into account gross domestic product and economic growth. The whole world is moving in the direction of an "alleged" civilization. But if one cannot see the disease of incivility then it is impossible to begin the healing process.
