For other nations, utopia is a blessed past never to be recovered; for Americans it is just beyond the horizon.
– Henry Kissinger
The point of mythology or myth is to point to the horizon and to point back to ourselves: This is who we are; this is where we came from; and this is where we’re going. And a lot of Western society over the last hundred years – the last 50 years really – has lost that. We have become rather aimless and wandering.
– J. Michael Straczynski
