Excerpt from The Renaissance

Wholly Idiosyncratic

Piracy is spreading in the general lawlessness of the world. We are going through a time of great creativity and change and of great violence. These have gone hand in hand historically. Rome, in the time just before the peak of the Empire and just after it, was in much the same situation. The Italian Renaissance as well as the northern European Renaissance and the first Industrial Revolution showed similar characteristics as those today. We can deplore the violence while we applaud the creativity. However creativity cannot be fully realized for the common good without suppressing the violence. A legitimate function of government is to keep the peace to allow creativity to flourish. Governments are now failing us with older models of governance which do not work. We will survive the current situation, but there must be a better way to do things.
