Is it true? That creativity gone unrealized creates a kind of cancer? That despite my uncanny resemblance to my mother I really am my father? That a democratic system can really be a caste like system at the same time? That the gap between the rich and disenfranchised will become so great that we may experience a modern day revolution? That we are among the most poorly educated people in the world? That despite concrete evidence people still dispute global warming and the holocaust? That one person can change the course of the future? That hunger, malaria and childhood diseases could be wiped out in months if a collective effort was made by a few billionaires? That the ocean could be cleaned by a young man from Norway? That the internet which was supposed to be a source of free information will be our demise?
