I was in this prematurely air-conditioned supermarket and there were all these aisles. And there were these bathing caps that you could buy that had these kind of Fourth-of-July plumes on them that were red and yellow and blue. And I wasn't tempted to buy one, but I was reminded of the fact that I had been avoiding the beach.
I was in this bookshop in Thun, Switzerland. And there were all these aisles. And there were all those books predicting the downfall of Western Civilization. And they were red, white and grey. And I wasn't tempted to buy one, but I was reminded of the fact that we're living in the end times. Just look at the titles above:
The fun stops where money begins
The Euro liars
The billion debt bomb
How much bank does a man need?
And at the other side of the aisle:
He who loses culture loses everything
The West and the rest of the world
The downfall of the West
The next cold war, China against the West
And a few steps further:How much is enough?
Why nations fail?
Crime scene Euro
May you live in interesting times ... well, whoever ordered them, he can have them back ...
