Dickens December: We are the skyscrapers

December 13, 2010


I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss, and, in their struggles to be truly free, in their triumphs and defeats, through long years to come, I see the evil of this time and of the previous time of which this is the natural birth, gradually making expiation for itself and wearing out.

(Charles Dickens. A Tale of Two Cities.)

I see it, too.
