Day 13 + 14: The Flat Circle

There have been a number of pieces lately actually investigating the rise and cause of the modern populist movement.
In France. In America.

People want less freedom can be one take away. Mine is that inequality makes us desperate for the necessities. When grocery shopping is about what you can do without. When your waking hours belong to someone else and you don’t get enough in return and their kids go to Europe to find themselves and rehab. Your kid got jail and an OD and you visit him every Sunday. Maybe it was your brother or parent but everyone else you know is there too. At some point it must end.

We made a faustian bargain in neoliberalism and the devil has come to collect.

-E.C. Fiori
