Richard, thank you, as always, for reading and for your thoughtful and vital observations. There is a theme in the book that economic growth and relentless consumerism are driving us to distraction. I wish we’d had more time during our discussion but I think you would find much to agree with in Johann’s writing (as well as some you might not agree with, of course). I know you have written so much yourself about the damage that can arise from ‘profit at all costs’. I hope we can make a difference but the more I read and observe, the less confident I get that change is possible. I personally find it difficult to come to terms with the fact that we live in a world where billionaires are launching themselves into space and researching life-extending technologies for themselves while kids are dying daily because they can’t access clean water.
