This 4 minute video of the animator Steve Cutts It is a very good critique of where we are in our modern capitalist society. I have worked for myself all my life and have benefited from the system, but that does not prevent me from seeing the flaws in our model of continuous consumption and unbridled growth. Chasing the chimera of happiness with every new purchase, pill or drink you ingest.
I’m not sure if Steve was thinking of the Boomtown Rats song when he made the video, but it’s a good excuse to listen to a classic tune.
I help keep the good Slugger ship afloat by managing the business and the technology.
