 Faustian Tales are more popular at times of moral crisis. We live in an era of fake news, political polarization and algorithmic echo chambers. Our experience of the world is fractured as we live out multiple identities on and offline.Crossroads are a democratic place. We all have to wait. On average, we will spend five years ‘waiting’ during our lifetime. Being held at a ‘DON’T WALK’ sign allows us a few seconds, and occasionally minutes, to ask ourselves ‘Where do we come from?’ and ‘Where are we going?’.
