    This is a most inspiring interview: The image of the present Western World as a wax museum with pulse is terse, incisive, to the point.
    The feeling of alienation from the world as it has developed is either the gateway into resignation or dissidence. Passionate people will choose dissidence and develop the will to change an unbearable situation. The established world is tired and has no more goals. Everything in it has become boring and is not worth living or dying for. Even in the military machines are to take from the individual the burden of something worth fighting for, thus signifying the extinction of the godly spark in the human soul which gives it life. I think we are living on a powder keg in this sated reality, ready to go off as soon as the security braces of unlimited food supply, canned entertainment and silly distractions with pseudo causes will come off.

    I think herd animals is the wrong analogy in the context of human groups. I think pack animals is much more suitable a type to compare humans too. Each member has a roll to play in the group. Member conformity is based on expertise of leadership and courage. a herd animal only responds to existential threats. Other wise is eating all day. The pack hunts.

    Wow. Guillaume Durocher’s accent sounds very American. I wasn’t expecting that. Did he grow up in the United States?
