3. As we merrily roll along...

towards and inevitable Oligarchy, (or whatever you want to call it) people who are affected should be concerned, at least.

If anybody sees a counterpoint to the fact that the future is for the wealthy, (all other things aside) then at least that could inspire an attempt to refute the trend.

There are many distractions in life. We live in a smart phone-mass media-entertainment complex. Many of us work long and hard just to try to squeeze by, so it is understandable that living in a survival mode of concern and worry is not only stressful, it can contribute to the problem behind it. Who wants to devote time to understanding a massive and complex problem like this?

Well, it is a matter of priorities. When your house is on fire, you know what the priorities are. When you are ill, it indicates that you have to do something about it. However, when something this fundamental to your well being, (economically and otherwise) starts to come into the picture, ignoring it won't make it go away. It might be time to consider the stakes and, at the very least, find out more as if it really matters.

We have a lot on our plates right now with the crises of a rogue pResident, but we will hopefully have refractory and recovery periods after this if it all goes well. We should be concerned with moving forward and go beyond tRump, not back to the same old same old.

Part of that progress is to grapple with the idea that those of us who are not wealthy, (and our children and so on) will most likely be renting our existence from those who own the World. Does that sound like something along the lines of a priority?

There is plenty of information to get started with and you might have an easier time sharing ideas about this than you do about partisan politics.
