"THE COUNTRY OF THE BLIND"

WE ARE LIVING IN THE LAND OF THE BLIND.

There is an old saying that goes:
      "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is King."
Unfortunately, it just isn't true.

Displaying a truly amazing insight into the nature of human affairs, noted author H.G. Wells, over 100 years ago, wrote a short story entitled "The Country of the Blind". Originally published in The Strand Magazine in April 1904, you can read a copy of this story (in .pdf format) by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.

Reading this story will clearly bring home what sane and insightful people are up against. At least Nuñez had somewhere that he could run to. I'm not sure, in this day and age, that there's anywhere else left to which we can run.
