b_b and I were just looking at the construction site of a large cancer center yesterday, and I joked that they better not cure cancer too soon.

I can see how people care about money, it gives you shelter, security, and maybe yachts, but what a sad illusion that money is some sort of cardinal direction.

If you have shareholders, it's the only thing you're allowed to care about.

Thus, end-stage capitalism.
