Forever In Flux

“As human beings we share a tendency to scramble for certainty whenever we realize that everything around us is in flux. In difficult times the stress of trying to find solid ground– something predictable to stand on– seems to intensify. But in truth, the very nature of our existence is forever in flux. Everything keeps changing, whether we’re aware of it or not.”  ~Pema Chödron

There’s a popular political movement based on recreating the past.  They want to bring back 20th century jobs, 20th century industries, 20th centuries systems and mores.

I understand the appeal.

But it won’t work.
