I fall right in line with all your thoughts. It takes a system change in the economy approach and a fight from each community to trade in complacency/corporate dependence for a self-sustained infrastructure. But the isolation between people is so deep, and unity is needed, community by community. This is especially harder in big cities, and that creates the biggest challenge. But changes are happening creatively, just not fast enough to rewire people on a mass scale. The greed virus is an epidemic and people don’t know they need it cured.
