What do you think while participating in a slow and gradual change; apprehending the severity of a problem when there is no one clear crisis point or moment of no return?

How do you respond to assumptions of rationality, intellectual rigidity and flagrant individualism?

Wise words from Jasper Bernes in Between the Devil and the Green New Deal

“An emancipated society, in which no one can force another into work for reasons of property, could offer joy, meaning, freedom, satisfaction, and even a sort of abundance. We can easily have enough of what matters—”… ‘”Beyond our foundational needs, the most important abundance is an abundance of time, and time is, thankfully, carbon-zero, and even perhaps carbon-negative. ”
