An almighty worldwide brainstorm is raging right now . . . everybody is asking themselves and each other the same question:
What the fuck happened . . . why did we crash . . . why did the center not hold?
Was it because advertising pickled our neurons? . . . or because the prices of all the stuff we kept on buying never told the eco-truth? . . . or because Big Finance and flash trading took over and distorted everything?
. . . or maybe because we allowed secrecy, collusion and corruption to creep into every nook and cranny of political life?
. . . or maybe the dumbest stupidest mistake of them all was granting legal personhood to corporations?
. . . an insatiable desire now to tinker with all these toxic remnants of the old world order . . .
