back to the land
Following up on the scariest chart evah, it seems to me that what we need is not jobs, but livelihoods.
Any society where citizens and the roles they play are reduced to economic "units" ("consumers") will come to grief. Any society in which three percent or less of the population raises the food "consumed" by the remainder has dug up its own roots.
We need lots more people directly involved in food production. These would be people who have neither the money nor the time for another grand mall seizure, even if there was affordable gas available to get there with, which there won't be.
Our leaders have no idea, but necessity will take us where we need to go, with or without em.
