Hi Katrina,

Thank you so much for reading and your positive feedback and thoughtful reply.

At this point, it feels like America is heading toward anarchy/collapse. I much prefer your idea of a shift towards a more socialist system. It seems that all empires eventually fall though. So, are humans not meant to be in groups/cities/states/governments that are so big? Why can't we make "civilization" function, work, and last?

I love your term "extreme capitalism." That's where we seem to be and it's poisonous for the majority of our population.

Yes! I agree on your last point, too. Patriarchy/capitalism aren't supportive of the dreamer/creative/empath/HSP/healer, etc. I can hardly imagine a society in which these traits are revered and supported. That'd be amazing.
