The Usefulness of the Useless

Nuccio Ordine

Egghead Choice - Crack open for a hard boiled think

At the start of July 2020 we have enjoyed one hundred days of lockdown in Britain. This has been ample time in which to fail to re-assess our priorities in life. Already we’re urged to get out and spend, spend in order to re-ignite the big engines of the economy. Economic development, population growth, material production, consumption and rampant consumerism must, and will, be resumed. It’s back to chasing wealth and gaily trashing the planet come what may. No long term lessons about happiness will have been learned.
