Faster and faster now we are pulverizing our civilization, breaking down its internal order and reducing its human components to a useless, undifferentiated dust from which no structures of any higher value can possibly arise.
To put it another way: the ability of a system to do useful work is a measure of the differentiation of the various states of its component particles. When everything is at equilibrium — or, in ideological terms, when all humans are precisely ‘equal’ in every way — entropy is at a maximum, no further work is possible, and the future of the system is nothing more than a succession of equally, and maximally, disordered states.
We are witnessing the heat-death of the West.
I had come to my own similar conclusion about equality. The wrong side won the Cold War, I often think.
