Day One: TRYING to get to the Cape Cod.
This post is actually quite long… so it’s under a read more. Uhm….. just ignore the paranthesis…. it’s just a lot of Roslyn going on stupid tangents.
There are monstrous changes taking place in the world, forces shaping a future whose face we do not know. Some of these forces seem evil to us, perhaps not in themselves but because their tendency is to eliminate other things we hold good. It is true that two men can lift a bigger stone than one man. A group can build automobiles quicker and better than one man, and bread from a huge factory is cheaper and more uniform. When our food and clothing and housing all are born in the complication of mass production, mass method is bound to get into our thinking and to eliminate all other thinking. In our time mass or collective production has entered our economics, our politics, and even our religion, so that some nations have substituted the idea collective for the idea God. This in my time is the danger. There is great tension in the world, tension toward a breaking point, and men are unhappy and confused.
I’m assuming this colourful invitation is referring to the beach part that Flis mentioned in the recent memo?
