“A life is no less valuable or beloved if one lives in an age of decline, than in an age of progress.”
Mathew Barrett Gross, The Last Myth: What the Rise of Apocalyptic Thinking Tells Us about America

“The truly apocalyptic view of the world is that things do not repeat themselves. It isn’t absurd, e.g., to believe that the age of science and technology is the beginning of the end for humanity; that the idea of great progress is delusion, along with the idea that the truth will ultimately be known; that there is nothing good or desirable about scientific knowledge and that mankind, in seeking it, is falling into a trap. It is by no means obvious that this is not how things are.”
