Anderson Posted December 13, 2020 Report Share Posted December 13, 2020 (edited) Jokes are fun and all, but when I read the parallel universe about the country where I live - Moldova, I got to say, I didn't expect this to hit so close home. Need to stop doomscrolling maybe. Today, we're just an inch from getting here: https://cyberpunk.fandom.com/wiki/Soviet_Union#Moldova Just replace Ukraine with Russia. Edited December 13, 2020 by Anderson Quote "I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."... - 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.
