This is very good, from the perspective of a middle-aged college-educated white English male living in Rome, Italy. I like the sense of intelligent informed people trying to think. One small grumble - it would be great if Mr Silver could resist using ‘like’ and ‘you now’ quite so often. Just pause -
silence is fine.
Many thanks, MS
