Returning to Plato's cave

Seeing the world around me these days I fear we are more and more regressing back into a dark-age. From the rise of religion and all it's intolerance too how people are more and more viewed as tools for the select few. Or how science is being obstructed too how showing public affection in at least one country is now forbidden, yet violence is never frowned upon. Not to mention the intolerance that is sweeping the planet again, and how those who feed upon intolerance are gaining support. Perhaps it never was any different through history. But one thing is sure, we are not that enlightened and it seems most people actively don't wish to be enlightened. They wish to return to Plato's cave and stare at shadows.
