Four Darks in Red, Mark Rothko, 1958

The world is at a crossroads.


we find ourselves again


at one of those moments in history


when almost everything is in motion


when what was yesterday


will not be tomorrow.



This is what happens when we rest on our laurels


when we forget that society cannot survive without solidarity


when we forget that democracy has to represent the interest of the many


when we allow money to become more important than votes


when we acquiescence as the fixers play the system


when we retire to our sofas and doze.
