Three years in, three years rarely won and mostly lost, the world feels worse than ever. Facing a singular crisis allowed the world to rally towards a common enemy and a common existential prerogative despite a minority of dissidents, here and there, now and then. But from everyday lives to domestic and foreign political economy, business, and society, we have fragmented towards a seemingly ever growing addiction to polycrisis that overlaps and/or amplifies the detriment of each in isolation.
Back to the mundane: WFH debates still rages on; wars of all sorts rages on; economic stagnation and uncertainty rages on; political strife and idiocy rages on; rich getting richer rages on; poor getting poorer rages on; some saying the world has been way better of historically rages; a lot saying everyday is doom rages on; royalty and oscars and showbiz and elites winning rages on; forgotten real crises and earthquakes and dying desperates rages on; aliens and strikes and d’oh days rages on; artificial intelligence reduced to solving laziness and lack of perspective and creativity rages on; and rage, rage, and rage.
