Welcome to Rome. . .

"As our age descends into a darkness illuminated by smart-phone screens, maybe whoever looks into their neighbor’s eyes wins."

Almost two decades ago, I heard an historian talking about the situation before the Fall of Rome, and all the parallels to our current culture.  He sold me then, and ever since, with each turn of the screw, I've thought (and often said) "Welcome to Rome," usually followed by something like "enjoy the Indian summer," or "careful of the fall."  Apparently, now it's so obvious the idea is gaining a following. . .


“Love your neighbor as yourself” has to mean more than “Like all your neighbor’s status updates that aren’t too political.”
