We are living through a major extinction event. Not just of pandas and rainforests, but of social tools and structures.
The book was invented over 500 years ago and it’s on the way out. Factory jobs were invented in the industrial revolution about 300 years ago, (before then, there were no jobs, just slaves, and military) now they’re going away too. Replaced by knowledge-work and artistic careers.
There is nothing wrong with books, or jobs. They’re just getting replaced by things that are better. I believe that government is soon due to evolve as a response.
