Travel, Time, and Technology

As I sit writing this entry, in the First Class Cabin of a United flight from Denver to Newark, I am left to wonder at the way the world has changed. I’ve been reading a novel set in some indeterminate period of the past (train travel is still the big and hot thing in this book) and I marvel at the way the world has changed in the past half century.

Bread And Circuses

“Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions — everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses.”
Satire #10
