Unfortunately, in this new age of lazy thinking our Cesta do stredu Zeme stops far short of a Journey to the Center of the Earth, preferring instead to hang out in margarita bars in Cancun to discuss the evils of American capitalism like Jean-Paul Sartre holding court in a Parisian café.

Unfortunately, it is less embarrassing for Western scientists to have joined the museum of hoaxes than it should be in an age when we all might have assumed that at least scientists were immune from superstition.
It is impossible to know what percent of Western civilization may be described as dysfunctional, incompetent and neurotic nihilists.

Hot World Syndrome is a product of social and cultural disorder (e.g., Amazing — IMPOSSIBLE BUT TRUE — Scientists say an enormous ball of fire out of the sea is coming for us). Symptoms of disorder include anxiety and fear, hypochondria and hysteria, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, phobias and a belief that others engaged in the simple business of living are destroying everything on Earth.
