Updated: 6 days ago

Because occasionally they come up with something like this: In Hermann Broch's 1932 novel The Sleepwalkers, Broch states: “And woe to the others, if in this conflict of systems that precariously maintain an equilibrium, one should gain the preponderance and overtop the rest—as the military system does in war, or as the economic system is now doing. For the triumphant system will embrace the whole of the world, it will overwhelm all other values and exterminate them as a cloud of locusts lays waste to a field.”
