Instead of the Bailout

This is my latest at The Partial Observer. Excerpt:
Many people, conservative and progressive alike, have been concerned about environmental degradation, the culture of consumerism, and "atomization," meaning the loss of community. These complaints should be taken with a grain of salt; after all, they are frequently made by people living in comfortable homes and posted from laptop computers. But whether particular complaints are valid, or just a projection of one's own unhappiness onto the outside world, there is indeed a fundamental flaw in our System. And it is for this reason that all thoughtful people, left, right, and middle, should oppose the Big Bailout of Wall Street and allow civil society to transform to a more natural order.
