Quote of the Day

“So long as globalisation was slow in coming, everyone hoped and prayed that it would come soon. The unity of the world’s nations was one of the great triumphalist themes of modernism. World’s fairs were staged in its honour, one after another. Now that globalisation is here, however, it arouses more anxiety than pride. The erasing of differences may not portend the era of universal reconciliation that everyone confidently expected.” – René Girard, The One by Whom Scandal Comes
