we are, indeed, going mad.

“The late-twentieth-century penchant for embellishment. The pathetic need for secret plots. Conspiracies everywhere. We have descended into the depths of paranoia. We’re consumed by fear and mistrust. We have no faith in the energy. The energy that is us and supports all life. We’ve lost understanding of the cycles of life. We don’t even believe in cycles. It’s all a straight line to us.

It’s all progress. We must progress from one point to another. We must be going toward a goal. If the Judeo-Christian man is not progressing, he will go mad; if life is circular, he will go mad. If he does not advance, he will go mad. And we are, indeed, going mad.
