We may be witness to the Berkshires becoming a pleasant place of bucolic charm. If so, we’ll be glad of it – something about the long, hard rain of the GE era took the will out of the citizenry – it grew more submissive to the whim and demand of the Dollar, generation after generation, until we’re on the verge of converting land in Lee – “Gateway to the Berkshires” into a truly world-class PCB dump!
The lunacy of organizing people around consumption – rather than production is enough to blow your mind. Mothers and fathers pour their children into a school system designed to produce people with dreams, hopes, and aspirations so low that they will be happy to be of service to consumers. There ought to be a law!
