    my paternal grandfather worked 2 shifts as a crane operator, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year for years to support his own family and his widowed sister-in-law's family. They did manage to move to 40 acres with a barn, chickens and a big garden. Those were tough times.

    The only thing good to be said if we head back to that time is that people are resourceful and dystopia isn't the only trajectory. Although not ideal by any stretch of the imagination, with a bit of creativity new communities/new economies could blossom from the ground up as people learn to barter with their neighbors for goods and services.

    "Let us not look back to the past with anger, nor towards the future with fear, but look around with awareness." James Thurber
