Our world is chock full of examples why capitalism cannot be sustained. From climate change, to the pandemic, to the much more basic problems like food insecurity, a world designed so that an elite few can appease their greed is ill equipped to deal with any of the serious problems we face. Only a world which doesn’t demand that everything be profitable can do that.

npc: 'i'm lost alone in the wilderness and horrible things will happen to me without access to a skilled healer, we should band together'

me: "ok"

npc: "looks like you're already traveling with a substantial group. maybe later."

me: "and I thought *my* social anxiety was bad"
