  •  Going a little astray, but (9+ / 0-)

    this idea about "leading" to nowhere is absolutely what those at the helm of our economy have to say about getting the economy "back on track."

    No one ever wants to explain why anymore. Just, we must do this for freedom. To have any sense of direction as a country- say, to restore damaged ecosystems so that we can have a regenerative economy in which everyone has a share- would be infringing someone else's freedom to opt out.

    We work day and night to restore an economy which is fueling all of the human attributes which demand satiation of our consumption disorder; the combined actions of which are destroying the ecosystems that our species needs to survive.

    So when the economy crashes- or rather, is revealed for what it is, a deeply manipulative and destructive system- no serious person has any other solution than to build it larger than ever before.

    Crackpot realists.
