November 28--Last weekend of this next to last month of 2020
Saw an interesting and sad pair of stats first thing this morning: COVID hospitalizations topped 90K for the first time and some 10million people may be evicted from their homes in the new year. It is interesting because of what it says about the our society that COVID is so out of control and sad because of what it says about our politics because it didn't have to happen if we had the political will to address the issues.
John Michael Greer at Ecosophia has a commentary on the "great reset." Interesting how our failed dreams seem to resurface but referencing an even older version. I couldn't get far into Ida Auken's piece he linked. But my mind made an fascinating connection: the several ads for meal delivery services. People in the ads are so overjoyed to not have to cook again. Supposedly they will be liberated from the drudgery and can do something creative with the time they have reclaimed.
