Not only is Amazon killing our book stores. Yes, novel readers don’t care what a book looks like. Just gimme the letters. Kindle readers, that kind. These let’s-kill-time entertainment readers are killing off all book sales. Who cares when we can only find books at second-hand bookstores if we got extinct?
But there is more, worse. People buying stuff from overseas are polluting humankind out of existence. When we’re all dead, who cares that we have no books anymore?
We should buy local stuff. Not just — but also — because it’s better for the economy. And for our security when we’re less dependent on imports.
Andrew Yang calls a spade a spade when he names the cause of the problem. Every big discussion is based on what is better financially, ignoring human capital. The dollar as our highest value (pun intended).
If it’s not viable it’s not worth our effort. If it’s profitable it must be good.
A derivative of this is that rich people must be admired (though envied) because they must have done something good to get so rich. Yeah, and they must have done a lot of wrongs to have so much more than most.
We must stop looking up at the billionaires. They are not necessarily the best moral guides. Try to listen to someone poor or at least an exploited person instead of an exploiter. “If you think this society works, ask a worker who isn’t.”
It would be wonderful if the country where its main idol is money would change that for Humanity First. If Andrew Yang would win. That would not just also be good for rich guys. It would help us all not die but survive.
