The US Constitution, the banking system, the building and construction industry, education, local body government, raising children; what do they share in common?

The answer is peak disconnect. Because "we" have become disconnected. I don't mean every single one of us, but enough to make the case. We live in the most material period in history, where even the poorest are better off than those who came before. Not that a status upgrade automatically accompanies it.

Unfortunately, we have not ditched the idea that the economic pie must be divided "fairly". The "entitlement" syndrome pervades as much as ever
