I will advocate a phase of gauge theories where the long distance scale symmetry is spontaneously broken by the quark condensate. This phase allows for massive hadrons and requires a dilaton, a genuine goldstone boson, which restores the Ward identities. I will discuss this on the example of the gravitational form factors. I will discuss the response of this system to explicit scale breaking of quark masses. At the end I will speculate that QCD itself and the Higgs sector could be of this type.
