I must confess that I'm deaf to the Zeitgeist we live in. Can someone tell me about the time we live in? This century ... it feels like a big nothing to me. There seems to be nothing going on. So many people seem to have gone inwards, the whole planet seems to spin inwardly now, nothing has remained moving on the outside. It's too damn quiet, at least here in europe.
I think back in the cold war there's at least been a tension between the east and the west. In my stance even the hope that the two perspectives could one day melt for the better of all. Hey, in the 1960's people hoped we could have space travel around 2000, they expected us to colonize the moon around this time. Where have we gotten?
Did ever a generation fulfill the expectancies of its former generation? Has any idol ever fulfilled his promises?
