Gurdjieff commented that, it takes a certain degree of normalcy in society to be able to ’work’. It’s not hard to understand - when the energy gets really psychopathic it’s hard to learn anything useful.

God, so much talk in the media and in the streets about the NOW that we are just about sick with the word. The Now Generation is talked about, all the Be Now Books of the Drug and Eastern Philosophy sources overflow.
Be Now, Be Now, 
Be Now, Be Now 
enough to make you sick!
The very words have been sucked dry - over exposure, as the politicians would say.
Now, NOW has gone down the drain right along with words like Love or God or Truthfulness - overuse - mumbo- jumbo

It's crazy out there. It's seems that the people keep moving because they don't know how to die.
There's no end to the complications. How could it be different, how could society exist if people were not going to 'jobs', 'passing the buck', worrying about their children’s education, cloths, food and sex life, lying and fending off their parents' 'logical' questions. 
What's there to talk about? Why everyone is trying to steal from the next guy - from the shopkeeper to our high class 'professionals' - and all with a well groomed SMILE? '
But it's got to go on' you say, 'that's life, that's society, that's our CIVILIZATION!’
And by-god you're right! Take one ugly piece out of that, take one basic ATTITUDE out of that and the whole building would come down - and who needs that?
But do you have to be sick and crazy along with the rest of them?
