The Monday Morning Quote #357

“Humankind seems to teeter between hubris and paranoia: the hubris of our ever-growing power contrasts with the paranoia that we’re permanently and increasingly under threat.

At the zenith we realise we have to come down again…we know that we have more than we deserve or can defend, so we become nervous.

Somebody, something is going to take it all from us: that is the dread of the wealthy.

Paranoia leads to defensiveness, and we all end up in the trenches facing each other across the mud.”

– Brian Eno
