Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
JE asks: “Transportation Oriented Development” is where I first picked up on the attempt at structural changes for the social changes that are to be implemented. I’m 73 and some of the young people seem so alien to me with their yuppie on steroids lifestyle. I am bewildered.
My reply: I’m bewildered, too – and I’m still sort-of young!
I think part of the reason for the pathological times we live in has to do with the normalization of debt; of living beyond one’s means as routine and even desirable. On the premise that the “good times” will never end; that someone else will always pay the inevitable bill.
Add to this the infantilization of society; the extension of adolescence into middle age. The feminization of thought (feelings given primacy over reason) and . . . well, here we are.
I often feel like the Big Chief in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. I’m betting you do, too.
