Babylon.

The problem with Babylon; that is, the way things are; is not that it will never fall. The problem is that there is nothing rising up to meet it as it descends. The powers holding this tentative flight in motion are doing absolutely everything possible to  ensure that we are all too distracted, too scattered, too divided, too confused and too scared to realise that we must become the very ground that the system smashes into – the rock that breaks the wave. This immovable object must come from us. Perhaps the most dangerous illusion of all in all of this is that the rock hard ground is already there and that our role is merely that of the bystander. Just as we created it, so too should we destroy it. With nothing in place, Babylon will fall forever, just as it has been doing since it was built on the sand, thousands of years ago.
