"I'm currently in Australia. The country strikes me as the model future vision of Liberal society. Shiny glass boxes, no history, no culture, no religion. No depth, everything is surface. The perennial present, where one day is exactly like the next. The only thing people talk about is food and property. There is nothing to see or do here bar restaurants. The people are like the drugged-up optimists of Huxley's "Brave New World" except they don't need soma - it comes naturally to them.

"As a Northern European I long for depth and history. Our culture may be broken but I like to take refuge in the shadows of the fallen masonry."
