Hey friends I know everyone wants things to get “back to normal” but I really think we should aspire to more than that!
Think what we could do to the unemployment rate if we doubled wages and halved hours
Imagine nobody in this crisis or the next one needing to worry about health insurance or their rent
Make this halt to air travel more permanent so we can start cutting out carbon footprint
The Dow need not be the measure of the health of our society. Capital has failed us, and we do not need it anymore
Push to make these changes permanent. Let people work from home. Freeze the rent. Give everyone paid sick days and raises.
I am scared by this crisis, and I am working through this by imagining building a better world. Let us build a world where this never happens again, because we are all ready.
Cut my salary. Raise the pharmacists, the sanitation worker's, the delivery cyclist braving new York traffic. Raise taxes on everyone who can afford it. Lift us all up.
If you're gay and a horse, this is the club for you
