Be very careful what you wish for......

     Lest there be any misunderstanding:  It is capitalism that opened the gates to the Land of Plenty, but capitalism alone cannot sustain it.  Progress has become synonymous with economic prosperity, but the twenty-first century will challenge us to find other ways of boosting out quality of life.

. . .  conflicting utopias are the lifeblood of democracy, after all.

     True progress begins with something no knowledge economy can produce:  wisdom about what it means to live well.

If anything, kids today are struggling under the burden of too much pampering.

-Rutger Bregman, being a few excerpts from his Utopia For Realists:  How We Can Build The Ideal World
