Reaction to my mail. Shocking, I say, #Shocking. Why are we always “shocked” by what we have known for a long time?

Giordano Bruno on the world economy

“The helmsmen of explorations have discovered how to disturb the peace of others, to profane the guardian spirit of other countries, to mix what prudent nature kept separate, to redouble men’s wants by commerce, to add to the vices of one people those of another, to propagate new follies by force and to set up unheard of lunacies where they did not exist before, and finally to give out the stronger as the wiser. They have shown men new ways, new instruments, new arts by which to tyrannize over and assassinate one another. Thanks to such deeds, a time will come when other peoples, having learned from the injuries they have suffered, will know how and will be able/ to return even worse fruits of such perniciousness.” Giordano Bruno 1584
