Anyway, I forgot to mention that last night I did watch Return to Oz with my family. YES!!!

 

I think maybe this weekend, we'll watch the Sword in the Stone, and possibly Bedknobs and Broomsticks as well. Tbh, Bedknobs and Broomsticks is hands down my favorite Disney film of all time (I'm not counting films that Disney bought, since apparently they bought RHPS...lolwat).

That is heartening to read, and I agree with everything you've posted here, especially the "some good points, but there are much better vehicles" part.
Idk that we'll ever see see eye to eye on, as Ring described it, "radical personal responsibility", but I'm glad to hear where you've ended up, at least.


So I do subscribe to 'racial personal responsibility' in the sense that there is always a move we can do to improve some aspect of our lives we dislike.

This isn't to diminish that some people really will have a harder time than others no matter what and depending on the metaphor here systemic barriers can prevent people from doing things entirely.


But the reason why this is so useful as an antidote to learned helplessness is because people really underestimate how much agency they have in life.


I'd be curious where you feel this falls flat though
When a system is broken, you have two options: work around the system, or fix the system. Sometimes you can do both at the same time, but not always, and even when you can, it's not a failing to just want the system to work instead of taking the risk of going around it.

Plus, like, it's just a very individualistic mindset, and we would be better off as a society if we were more community minded. Collective action is our most powerful asset against capitalist exploitation, after all.

Yeah on the grand issues of workers rights, corporate monopolies, concentration camps in china, or climate change its not an individual effort. 

 

 

When I say individual responsibility I mean recognize what you can do to improve your life as best as you can.

Use solar, plant more trees, tax the rich, tax churches, & vote idiots out of office who disagree.

I have nothing against some individual boomers, or even pre-boomer, Silent Generation members. But ppl tend to look at groups and generalize.

 

Ok, so if you look at some of the household appliances in terms of wattage, fridges, washers & dryers, microwaves, ect. are the most power hungry. Most Individuals from the Silent Generation, and even Boomers, grew up using ice boxes, washing their clothes by hand, & drying their clothes on clotheslines. The way they had to live was less detrimental to the environment than ppl who use "luxury" household appliances ran on non-green energy sources (And yes, there are also a lot of Boomers & pre-Boomers who use those appliances today).

 

Ofc, there are ppl who are too poor to afford something like a washer & dryer, but because of things like that, the poor actually tend to have a lower carbon footprint.

 

If ppl are wealthy enough to want to save their money & buy power-hungry appliances, then certainly they can take the individual responsibility to save their money to buy/rent some kind of green energy source to run said appliances. 

 

However, things would be a whole lot simpler if the gov't would just tax tf out of the rich & any "non-profit" religious organizations (that are not exactly non-profit anyway), shut down the fossil fuel industry altogether, & utilized green energy sources for the power grid system.

I think if it seems like a career you'll enjoy better then switching over is a good idea. Just be aware of doing it for the money.

 

Right now an enormous amount of investment is being funneled into software startups, some of which are just selling air with a cool app to display it like wework. Others like uber can only ever hope to be profitable if they establish a monopoly or near enough one. But on the whole most of these are regular businesses who have eccentric startup CEOs with the Steve Jobs persona and language, and a slight layer of software that makes investors believe its a tech company. 

 

 

Anyways I think most of the things that need to be monopolies to work will either eventually become them or fall apart, and while thats uncertain there will be lots of money flowing into tech companies so that investors can strike gold on being part of the one that does make it big.

 

And down the line I think investors will be wary of the tech startup fad thats big right now which means software engineer wages that are inflated by Silicon Valley will start to decline, since I believe the whole economy has to pay software engineers more to prevent them from hopping ship and moving to the bay area. 

 

 

Not that the tech scene will ever really die, I read about database admins making 200k a year during the .com boom and here we are again in 2019. But be aware of where you want to specialize and the expected trajectory of your career.
