Semper paratus

A rather dark and depressing essay on the state of things. Very in line with my feelings of late.

Something indeed feels ready to snap, and nobody knows what the result will be. Personally, I feel that there is a race with decaying nation-states staggering toward a Leibowitzian retelling on one hand and the Kurzweilian forces of positive technological change on the other. Which will win? If the last century has taught us anything it’s that the smart money has always been on dumb humanity.
