I discovered this unpublished blog draft in my old phone - I am guessing drafted some time around 2007:
I hate these moments - the moments when, after having worked my ass off in my lab or in my office, I have to finally face the real world after days of effective isolation. Everything seems so hard & my nerves are already broken. Today I had to travel to London after more than 20 days of intensive work. It came almost unexpectedly - at the first security control I wanted to bite the guard's ears off.

I am now 43. I've lived a mostly proud life of non-conformance. I now understand it - most of it at least, or so I think. I have made peace with life and death. Not afraid of either. If I was to die now I would not flinch once. I welcome all that may come, including absolutely nothing. Cheers!
One of the things that have annoyed me since I was a little kid is the incredible idiocy, superficiality and hypocrisy of the average human being.
During the last third of my life I have realized that almost all very successful businesses cater to people's idiocy, superficiality and hypocrisy instead of trying to cure it.

A few relevant quotes from one of my favorite philosophers:

the spirit becometh a lion; freedom will it capture, and lordship in its
“Everyone who has ever built anywhere a new heaven first found the power thereto in his own hell.”
"Have ye courage, O my brethren?...He hath heart who knoweth fear but vanquisheth it; who seeth the abyss, but with pride. He who seeth the abyss but with eagle's eyes, -- he who with eagle's talons graspeth the abyss: he hath courage."
I have encountered the Last Man in many lands, but nowhere have I witnessed him thrive more than in the tropical lands of Brazil. Who is this Last Man you ask? Here, I will let Dr.Nietzsche explain it for you:
"They have something whereof they are proud. What do they call it, that which maketh them proud? Culture, they call it; it distinguisheth them from the goatherds.

So, anyone who can read behind the various political facades that are being put up knows that Europe (and each European country on its own) continues to inevitably crumble down driven by historical, political and social forces that are rarely so aligned. Put very simply, most of Europe is simply not competitive any more, i.e. the ratio of quality over price of Europe produced goods and services is not as high as it used to be when compared to other regions of the world. France, a typically inefficient neo-liberal country, continues getting hit hard with layoffs and whole plant shutdowns.
Who destroyed more ancient Greek art than any traditionally conceived enemy? The "Greek" Christians - the worse mental plague that human kind has experienced.
