I’ve been reading a number of Christopher Ketcham’s articles recently. You can of course duckduckgoose his writings.

This one is over a year old (probably an old and understood topic for most here as well), but does provide insight to our current state of affairs (inequality, extreme capitalism, and per Huxley “permanent control of everybody and everything by the agencies of the central government”). I hope this is not too far off-topic?

Thanks for sharing! Yes, @aral talks about the unsustainability of endless growth (which is what investors in Silicon Valley invest in) in his talks. Also likening it to cancer, as it makes everything toxic and leaves nothing left.
