#100WW — The Gargoyle on Top of the Cathedral

CF4600CA-AB7B-44AE-8E15-5AE04C043A54I’ve seen it all from up here on my perch high atop this cathedral for the last 850 years. I’ve witnessed the very best of humanity and civilization and I’ve witnessed the very worst of both.

I’ve seen war and revolution. I’ve seen peace and salvation. I’ve seen unfathomable cruelty and incredible kindness. I’ve seen death and destruction and birth and construction.

I’ve seen progress and growth. I’ve seen stagnation and decline. I’ve seen warriors and holy men.

Yes, I’ve seen things come and I’ve seen things go. But I don’t think I, or humanity and civilization, will see another 850 years.

    REFEED: Assange last video
    before communications cut at
    Ecuadorian Embassy in London

    See from about twelve minutes in
    until eighteen or so (he kinda’ agrees).

    Somewhere in this talk, he says he thinks
    those being born now are the last generation
    who will be able to consider themselves born free.

      And since we’re about the same age, I second that.
