Our Civilization

Simon Schama Says... (in Civilization, 2018) 
"We can spend a lot of time debating

    what a civilization is or isn't, 

    but when its opposite shows up - 

    in all its brutality & cruelty & intolerance

    & lust for destruction

    we know what civilization is. 


 We know it from the shock of its imminent loss

    as a mutilation on the body of our humanity."
