Ο Πόλεμος στην Ουκρανία επιτάχυνε την διάσπαση της υφηλίου σε δύο τεχνο-φέουδα – στο ένα οι αξίες εκφράζονται σε δολάρια, στο άλλο σε γουάν. Καθώς ο κόσμος διασπάται, οι ταξικές συγκρούσεις τόσο εντός όσο και μεταξύ αυτών των τεχνο-φέουδων γεννούν καταστροφικές δυνάμεις που απειλούν το είδος μας με εξαφάνιση – από τον Νέο Ψυχρό Πόλεμο, […]
