Oil and energy prices are low because there is a glut. Also there is a glut of labor worldwide
We also live with a glut of nonsense. Much of that is multiplied by political campaigns and myths.
Nonsense deluges are absorbed by the public, especially true believers. The supply is unlimited as people are paid well to manufacture and broadcast improbable ideas and fabulous fantasies. Promises of easy living head the list. This implies someone else will fix the problem.
As loafing and dependency increase, people have more time to dream and complain.
Never miss a local story.
This is the well-known Loaf-Lamentation Loop. When time’s wasted, oil oversupplied, labor languishing and nonsense increasing, the nature of our era becomes clear: We are in the middle of a muddle.
The public needs to be informed of the great excess and waste. Only then will the astonishment be abated, hype be handled and muddle be minimized.
Then all may go soundly to sleep in peace, untroubled.
