History shows us that, right before a major upheaval, there’s normally a flurry of activity. Decadence. Celebration of the good times. Wringing out of the last drop of excitement and pleasure. I refer you to, in no particular order:
- Nero and the whole Rome deal
- King Charles, his nasty long hair and his cavalier attitude
- A nice slice of cake prior to the French Revolution
- The divinely decadent parade getting a good raining on courtesy of Mr Hitler
- £400k for a one-bedroom flat in Acton – that’s worth nothing now
Taking this into account, I was interested to read a piece from Communicate Magazine which highlights a veritable slew of social media events, publications and workshops that are springing up and taking place over the next month or so – including, if you can credit it, a two-day ‘social media retreat’. At which, apparently, ‘the finest wines are available’.
I think the parallel is there to be drawn. Vive la revolution!
