I work somewhere that has people who are constantly telling me about how great 'progress' is. But when they explain what 'progress' actually means it seems like a nightmare.
They also go on and on about the economy and how we need to bolster and strengthen the economy. Again, every time they explain what constitutes a strong economy it sounds like everything that is good for the economy is bad for individuals and terrible for families. The only good thing about a strong economy is that there are more jobs and jobs provide income.
Is it just me, or are these ideals that we are told to strive for actually really bad?
