Comment on State of Uncertainty by zeejaythorne.
Interdependence is so important to remember. I am not free if my neighbor is not free. I am not safe if my neighbor cannot trust the police.
It worries me a great deal when FIRE bloggers write as if the world will not impact their plans. Some folks don’t even seem to consider the financial implications of major events, let alone the human implications. Folks who want to retire and slowly travel for 40 years without truly becoming a part of any community and contributing to the decency in the world worry me.
I don’t have solutions other than being careful with my language. Not painting people I disagree with in broad (ugly) strokes. Attempting to understand why we see things so differently. Attempting to share my vision without demanding it be the only vision.
