Desire, disappointment, hope, anger – the feelings that accompany humans from the moment they start to realise that life is slipping through their fingers. We are disgusted with a world that in most cases is ruled by incompetent individuals who usually have nothing to boast of but the gloriole of success. And money, of course. And it seems that money is that which matters most in today’s world. Ideas and ideals have fallen by the wayside. We are waiting. For happiness, for change, for death. And hoping that one day truth and love will prevail over lies and hatred. And this held just as true one hundred years ago as it does today.
