I do not know if the doctrine that the nation-state arose in the 19th century was still being taught:;... but it is erroneous.

People might gain insight the longer they live, but things never get easy.

The secret is to keep moving and try to see people yo love for what they are: flawed, beautiful and as confused as you.rob payne
On the Day of Judgement, God will interrogate people according to the wisdom he has granted them.
Over the postwar years, we have granted to the elite and secret police within our system vast new powers over the lives and liberties of the people.
