Just because a process is extremely slow, it doesn’t mean it’s irrelevant or non-existent. On the contrary. Swift changes draw attention and tend to get a sudden response from people, whereas a slow process can take place before our very eyes completely unnoticed. One day we’ll just come across the result of something that we feel has been there for as long as we can remember. But the truth is it wasn’t there to begin with.
A slow invasion but invasion nevertheless.
