The pendulum may continue to swing until
Modern man doesn’t know how to do anything anymore
Except to work a job to pay someone else to do everything for him—
Farming out nearly everything out until he has forgotten how to do anything for himself.
Someone else changes his oil
Raises his kids
Grows his vegetables
Swings his hammer
Reads his books and
Thinks his thoughts.
And he fails as a person in many ways—
Except as a consumer—
Until he is himself consumed.
