In Italy, for 30 years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love, they had Protected content of peace - and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock. -Harry Lime (Orson Welles) in The third man

Nowadays, we have warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed. And what have we been producing? Not even the cuckoo clock! :(
