Uncoiled Thursday April 11, 2013, 0 comments

The great machine winds down, the springs uncoil to the utmost end, spending themselves overcoming friction instead of driving forward the slow, once-inevitable gears of progress.

The last employee is cut for efficiency’s sake. The last transaction is completed. The last – and largest – profit is made. Then the flywheel stops.

All is quiet. No wind disturbs the dust and ashes.

What hand will wind again the great springs that turn the world?
