A Modern Menace

Did you ever hear of Socrates or Plato standing in line? Of course not! No lines for them when discussing the great meaning of the world. Life was better then. You never heard of Kant being forced to stand for over five minutes just to wait for a bus or grab a bite to eat for dinner. You never read about Søren Kierkegaard having to put with long lines just so he can buy some butter or a bit of bread. They never talk about lines when back then because those ancient Romans and Greeks know how to get things done like aqua ducts and forcing people to fight lions. But here I am, centuries later and I have to put up with this hell everywhere I go. You’d have thought they’d figured out a way to avoid making us standing in a queue all the time but of course not.
