And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here! And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
—Mark 13:1–2 (cf. Matthew 24:2 and Luke 19:43–44)
We are witnessing a great and sudden turning in human history, in which life undergoes a terrible simplification. The Modern Era may end, as it began, with a revolution.
Consider that of the books publish this year perhaps all will be wholly forgotten.
