We are rarely content with mere survival — we want naturally to be flourishing… most of us, anyway. A very vocal minority perennially aims to fuck it all up though, with disinformation and bullying and violence and domestic terrorism. Those power mad, money hungry, fame whoring moral prostitutes seek to keep us all surviving vs. flourishing — except for themselves, of course!
Meanwhile, the peoples of the earth generally would like to live in harmony and sustainability with our planetary home. We have heard the promise of technology to solve such problems and are perplexed as to their belated arrival on the scene of this existential crisis.
