One Day. Back to gym. A rather dismal session overlain with a podcast about the rot of American (including Canadian) society.
This got reinforced as I tried to get out of the motorcar park at the gym onto the highway.
We seem to have given democracy away for consumerism capitalism.
Driving skills and abilities are almost non-existent. People cannot stay in lane, signal turns or lane changes, or even turn without occupying two or more lanes. And not just the people driving (?) pickup trucks. All manner of motorcars. They can’t even stop at a STOP sign properly.
Ignorance has replaced knowledge as the desired state of humankind. People are proud of their ignorance and insecurity and resist thought and knowledge like some sort of plague worse than Bubonic.
Money is the only measure of esteem.
Accomplishment has become meaningless, if not actually criminalized.
We no longer have a society, a civilization, or a nation-state. I am not sure what it is but it makes a noyau look good.
