Signs of a Sick Society
There are two ideas I've heard discussed by late Gen Xers and Millenials that both point to a sick society. One is the wish for unearned wealth, and the other is the wish to be unplugged from society (live off the grid). They both point to freedom from the trappings of the world around us. We all wish for financial independence as it is called. The idea of unearned wealth or unplugging leads to a comment on how repulsive current society is. Many people know or feel this sickness, but few will ever speak up or do anything about it.
