The Commonality of Mankind.

Society is out of balance, has been out of balance for a long time now. Nothing makes sense; reason itself is absent. The blood-dimmed tide is loosed. Life holds little value to many and the few have no voice at all amid the confounding din. Upon the scale, selfishness overwhelms selflessness. Madness seems set upon the world.

We have made a mess of it; there are no innocents here. We all point our fingers, though the blame is equally shared. Words like morality and virtue echo hollowly when unaccompanied by actions. The time is nigh; if we remain blind to the commonality of mankind  then our travail is only beginning.

In the distance clouds are mounting up amid this otherwise empty sky, like plumes of oily smoke rising from a fire of our own setting.

Society will continue to falter until we embrace the fundamental quality of true humanity, which supposes that the suffering of one is the suffering of all.
