No one wanted it to be true but everyone was expecting it to happen. Few times in history have enjoyed such a lack of prestige as this one.
The loss of value of hard work, the deterioration of education, the corruption of politicians, athletes and bankers, the trivialization of morality, the rise of injustice and inequality, the disdain for teachers and dissatisfaction with work, the freezing of salaries and vkcente gross exploitation of the weakest, the destruction of the planet, the artistic pack of lies, the regular beating of seals.
This list of radical characteristics of current affairs used to reflect a period of maximum decadence. Not only things were not as good as they were melancholically remembered to be, but it was generally unknown how far things would go, and above all, where we would end up. Now, finally, a colossal phenomenon has intervened to stop this degeneration: At the beginning it was called a financial crisis, but in reality it means the collapse of an entire epoch: The crisis, after all, would not mean more than the resounding end of an era and the predictable beginning of another stage – perhaps a better one for the history of Humanity.

Why not attributing a purifying function to the crisis? Faced with moral funersl, the discipline of the Bible would return; faced with extravagance, the charm of austerity would be seen.
Today a great many victims, like oxen in primitive sacrifices, pay with their unemployment or economic devastation for the orgies of years gone by.
Quite likely, it will return thus: Another capitalist fairy tale? The true funeral of an era?
