Most of society is degenerating into a kind of paralysed, democratic committee. No firm decisions are taken because of the collusion of mediocrity that arises from people fearing to speak any words that might trespass into another’s “personal sacred space”.
This tiptoeing around the edges of the collective fire of passion results in the fire-flame dying through neglect. It becomes a fire, not of passion, but of mediocrity.
Eventually this mediocrity becomes the habitual norm and is soon renamed “excellence”. Anyone who questions this “new excellence”, or even challenges it, is either tolerated as a labelled “King’s fool” or, if the challenge is too effective, they are either ejected or annihilated.
