"Grab the nearest book, turn to page 123, find the fifth sentence, and post the text of the following three sentences on one's own blog. Anyone who hunts down an "intellectual" book from some box down in the basement is disqualified!"
When a babe like this (her photo's on the blogsite) commands, I perform. All females of the species may take notice.
Anyhow, here goes (I'm going to cheat a little because the "three sentences" called for, from a linguistic point of view, aren't sentences.):
"Second Wave systems are in crisis. Thus we find crisis in the welfare systems. Crisis in the postal systems. Crisis in the school systems. Crisis in the health-delivery systems. Crisis in the urban systems. Crisis in the international financial system. The nation-state itself is in crisis. The Second Wave value system is in crisis." -- Alvin Toffler, The Third Wave, 1980.
