Fat and Not Too Happy

The high school staff at Cary Christian School is reading The Revolt of the Masses.  Though written in the 30s, by a Spanish philosopher, it is surpisingly prophetic:

“But the truth is exactly the contrary; we live at a time when man believes himself fabulously capable of creation, but he does not know what to create.  Lord of all things, he is not lord of himself.  He feels lost amid his own abundance.  With more means at its disposal, more knowledge, more technique than ever, it turns out that the world to-day goes the same way as the worst of worlds that have been; it simply drifts” (44).
