Never as now Europe represents the Old World.
Look at the politicians, a bunch of old crooks who feed more on Viagra than meat, ready to be again toilet trained, but willing to play the part of the Emperors.
Money has the magic power to cloud your view, to give the illusion to an old bird of Paradise to be a young bug of May.
Power is both deciding to bomb a country to get cheap gas and paying a young woman to make you feel a boy.
What nature cannot do, technology can.
And in this renewed spree of stupidity a glorious, ancient country dies.
