"I am told that the Tully River Aborigines never made the connection between coition and pregnancy.
For them the ultimate act of creation-childbirth-is one of divine chance."
This seems ridiculous to us, but we are ridiculous the same.
We see a lot, but not what is in front of our eyes.
We have seen for many years a future that was not actually The Future and we are speechless and disoriented seeing we got all wrong.
We were (and still are in certain nostalgic parties of our old Europe) "trying to preserve a 35 hour work week in a world where Indian engineers are ready to work a 35-hour day, "and where Indian families are ready to sell their children into sexual slavery to survive." Now, THERE'S a standard to reach for."
Are we going to try to reach that standard or are we blindly going on believing in a future which will never exist?
Do we still believe in a 35 hours work week?
Do we still believe we are entitled to it, while millions struggle to survive?
History teaches us that is much better to share a piece of the cake instead of loosing the full one...
But, as usual, nobody listens to History.
