Give It Back, Or We'll Take It Back

Let me not mince numbers. Over the last decade and more, median income has stagnated. Net worth has declined. Mass unemployment has become a chronic, unshakeable illness--and youth unemployment is a full-blown crisis. Happiness and satisfaction have flatlined, while trust and a deeper sense of meaning have plummeted. The picture is as undeniable as it is dismal: these trend lines map the contours of a deeply broken economy, society, and polity.

No amount of polite hand-wringing or half-hearted tweaks from the complacent frequent-flyer class will provide cover at this juncture. The message is clear: Unenlightened soul-sucking planet-eating bean counters of the universe, your day is over.
