Many people with the privilege of retaining their income while working online are rethinking basic assumptions about our lives at the end of the American century. Sadly this is a minority of, even, the US population but it is good. Any thought at all reveals the moral squalor of our lives even if that thought begins with only cleaning house and wondering if we really need to work so hard.

The next thought that arrives is that capitalism needs to be buried before it kills us all. Using cloth bags is now required in cities and states. Putting advertising on them is to what end? Public service? Hopefully not to sell unneeded stuff churned out by factories in China and India with a massive carbon transport cost. Or services that steal information assets from people to suck them further into debt.

We have an incredible opportunity that we may never have again, given the losing doors of the climate crisis, but we have a long history of being unable to raise our head above the muck in which we are buried.

Being positive is the basis of restoring governing authority to the people. We must do it because those in power will kill us without a second thought.
