Some kind of infectious micro structures are floating in the air, poisoning people’s minds. People are getting lost. Some are starting questioning surrounding them status quo but most are lacking of an h factor to understand the source of the outbreak.

“…More than machinery, we need humanity.
More that cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness.
Without these qualities life will be violent, and all will be lost…”
– Charlie Chaplin – The Great Dictator
