After the Crash

Perhaps you are not much interested in the world of tomorrow. But the world of tomorrow is very much interested in you. You may say to yourself, no doubt, “Whatever happens, somehow or other I’ll manage to find a way to enter it.” Well, it may be so. Let us hope that it will not be the way the lamb enters the jaws of the wolf.
—Bernanos, Last Essays
