This best of all possible worlds is murkily descending into a messy state. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer and the middle classes, invented by the autocratic powers in the age of enlightenment to keep the powerless at bay, are slowly but surely being whittled down to non-entityness. So goes the world and when and where will it end should be the question of questions. Violence is increasing, freedom is retreating, the entertainment industry is booming. Something is wrong, don't you think?
