The Great Equalizer

“I wouldn’t mind if the consumer culture went poof! overnight because then we’d all be in the same boat and life wouldn’t be so bad, mucking about with the chickens and feudalism and the like. But you know what would be absolutely horrible. The worst? … If, as we were all down on earth wearing rags and husbanding pigs inside abandoned Baskin-Robbins franchises, I were to look up in the sky and see a jet — with just one person inside even — I’d go berserk. I’d go crazy. Either everyone slides back into the Dark Ages or no one does.” – Douglas Coupland, Shampoo Planet

What We Leave Behind

And the wind shall say “Here were decent godless people;
Their only monument the asphalt road
And a thousand lost golf balls.” – T.S. Eliot
