And you see also the rise of fundamentalism as well, everywhere. Half of America is now… what they fear the most is a fundamentalist. We had just seen the Supreme Court support another fundamentalist. So I think the fear of the uncertainty, fear of uncertainty, some of the communities collapse into fundamentalism. The Bible, the Koran, women in their place, you know, that’s one god, that’s one zone of comfort. Another is it’s a shark pool, I’m going to get for me, I’m going to be okay. Number one is my only project.
And then there are a few stupid people, like maybe you and me, who realize that your security comes from your community. I think we’re going to see a three-way cultural conflict, very much like Europe from 1500 to 1648, the end of the Thirty Years’ War, The Thirty Years’ War being the worst time in Europe, where all the religious, the differences in beliefs, caused differences in beliefs amongst people who were the same. Caused terrible – this is not going to be an easy-does-it, gentle transition. I think it’s naïve. As a student of history, it is naïve to think it will be anything other than very brutal and ugly, and you don’t really know how it will, in the end, come to a finish. I mean, after all, it was a hundred years ago, this time of year that Europe launched itself into what looked like an adventure. It wasn’t, was it? You don’t know.
