I hope this antiprogress agenda doesn’t catch on. Recent innovations that enhance our lives have made a few people very rich and it doesn’t bother me. These individuals have earned their wealth. The consequences of the pandemic for example would have been much worse without Amazon or Zoom. Drug companies that created the covid vaccine, saved or will save millions will do very well financially. That’s fine with me.

It’s time to celebrate the achievers and stop feeling sorry for the nonachievers.
