Pourquoi la magie est devenue élististe ?

The kinds of stories we tell ourselves, and maybe especially the kinds of fantasy stories, speak volumes about what we want and what we fear. From Aladdin to the Golden Ass to Faust, in the past we told stories about people who acquire the ability to do magic-and sometimes benefit and sometimes suffer. That could be us. Now we tell ourselves stories about magical people who struggle to deal with their special gifts. Those people are not us, and I do think there's something sad about a culture that writes itself out of its own fantasies. But we're still practicing magic ourselves, so I suppose that's something.

When did magic become elitist ?
