It’s time to go Cassandra on you other Cassandras out there. Yes, I’m talking to you, with your clever idea. I know you’re thinking, “Don’t worry, I know what I’m doing.” I bet Karl Marx thought the same thing. Western church fathers still do.
The sense of dread that led me to starting this blog has matured into cosmic horror. We have no idea what we are doing and trying to be clever isn’t the answer – centuries of trying to be clever is how we got into this mess in the first place. Humility is in order, lest we end up like Muhammad.
My warning shouldn’t dissuade you from trying to plot the course, we are in uncharted waters after all. Just remember that old navigation tools still apply. And remember, above all:
Here be Dragons.
