His ideas are so profound and so simple, it makes one wonder what prevents governmental authorities from using the road maps he provides here to correct the follies of unreason, which continue to plague modern society, holding us just slightly out of the realm of the dark ages. We are still uncivilized and Foucault has defined for us just how little we have traveled away from our past ignorance. We are still in the grips of middle-age ideas because we refuse to truly step away from the Neanderthal instincts. We are acting as though technology has brought us to new levels of intelligence but we are still on the threshold of the cave.
