God gives all men all earth to love, but since man's heart is small, ordains for each one spot shall prove beloved over all.

The local is a shabby thing. There's nothing worse than bringing us back down to our own little corner, our own territory, the radiant promiscuity of the face to face. A culture which has taken the risk of the universal, must perish by the universal.
Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007) French sociologist, and philosopher.
A good place to visit, but a poor place to stay.
