The Days Of Our Lives

a: Human civilization ~
b: great soap opera

What: "I lean a bit toward the doomer side of things, which makes me great fun at parties. The truth is, though, life has a way of reverting to the mean. No matter how bad things may seem on a given day, over time they tend to improve. Similarly, just when you think you are on the verge of Utopia, the market crashes, or someone flies a plane into a building. The story of human civilization is like a great soap opera playing out against a series of artificial social and cultural backdrops which are consistently mistaken for permanent institutions."
