There's a lot going on in the world. There's a feel of one regime ending, and something new taking over. It's happening everywhere. In some way, shape, or form, we're all asking what our role in this new world is going to be. Where do we stand? What will be honored? There's a lot to it, too.
We're asking questions of who's too blame: for the system, for the problems, for the way things are. What is tolerance? What is too tolerant? To what extent can you press your beliefs on others?
They're big questions, with bigger ramifications. I know that I, for one, am asking what my role in this is.
