When hasn’t there been a “Crisis On The Horizon?” Man’s mortality bakes it into the cake.
The people who make a living telling everyone else what to do are heavily invested in their self-serving importance. As the years pass their cries of doom get more acute and more plaintive. And when faced with the end they inevitably resort to a rhetoric that is directly proportional to their impending demise.
So it is that there is underway and forced on everyone by the underlying demographics of the “ME Generation” a pogrom of doom intent on sweeping before it the world and the future. The intonation and lyrics fester, become increasingly hyperbolic, as the inflection point approaches.
A shame really.
