“The system isn’t working for the 1%, either. If you were a CEO, you would be making the same choices they do. The institutions have their own logic. Life is pretty bleak at the top, too. And all of the baubles of the rich, they’re kind of this phony compensation for the loss of what’s really important: the loss of community, the loss of connection, the loss of intimacy, the loss of meaning.
Everyone wants to live a life of meaning…Joint consumption doesn’t create intimacy. Only joint creativity and gifts create intimacy and connection.
You have such gifts.”
