I think something that makes things go slow is that we live under the shock of the present. I have witnessed many things that worked not work anymore. Surely this is a condition of some required change, but it is in may terms a loss.

To put a simple example, in the 800000 souls town where I live, students engaging to study Law have passed from almost 1000 to under 200 in 8 years. This I see fortunate in that I see the ingrease in the legalistic as negative, but the thing is that young are deterred by having to work 2 years entirely for free before starting to operate as lawyers, and then lack of work follows (what results in too sharp some new lawyers), slavery by any other name... the lack of correspondence between effort and result is mark of our times, and this is due to reins coming from the far past.

I use to say, No hurry in going to nowhere... and people seems to think that way, some of them surely do.
