Listen, they've primed us for years with movies. Who's getting those post-apocalyptic fantasies financed? And why are so many of them resonating for me?

I love plots where a small group can beat a powerful oppressor. An evil corporation exploiting precious resources. Lords taking food from starving peasants. Laws passed to hurt and chain criminals and minorities; another resource. To monetize suffering. To withhold basic needs of life. Who owns the land? Who owns imagination? Stories? Who owns words and songs and shelter and safety and health?

We pay to exist. Our natural habitat is gone. We pay to exist in our unnatural environment.

Is there an anxiety driven sub? Every silver lining seems to come with a giant dark cloud.
