    That means a lot to me.

    I agree re: coops. As Ted says, there are several variants and we need to experiment over and over and over with them all, so we can develop best practices and hopefully get really good at launching and sustaining them.

    But what we do know is that modern capitalism, which makes, as Sarah van Gelder said, the P&L and making wealthy people even wealthier the dominant decision-making factors, fails society and the environment in which it lives.

    So we have to change. And cooperatives, I agree, are an important part of how we can do that.

    The singularity we are witnessing is the passing of the last wave of people who had the luxury to behave as if the past 30 years did not happen.
