        Yup. I’ve been thinking about this a lot too.

      I think SEnkey says it well: "Everything is simple when you don't know anything about it."

      It’s time to build. It’s also time to forget everything we thought we knew and start from scratch. Everything is broken, but that just makes it a very interesting time to be a builder.

      But of course it is not as simple as we would like. Take education, hiring tutors is not an easy answer. Why? Because who will pay for the tutors? Who will be in charge of choosing the tutors? I was a principle of a Title I school for several years. We got money to do just that, but the new hires had to be approved by the vested interest. And they had to devote time to compliance documentation and state sanctioned grade appropriate curriculum - even when very few of the kids were on grade level. Everything is simple when you don't know anything about it. I think things in general are getting better and better, despite this pandemic anomaly.

      Every intellectual who starts out planning to build eventually gets bogged down by the meta (what, at the low-level manifests as 'politics' and at the high level as 'strategy').

      I'll return to this over and over.
