I’m generally an optimist. When I wrote this essay a few years back (just published it on Medium yesterday because I only found out about Medium from a friend), there seemed to be a few events conspiring, and then watching the movie Wolf on Wall Street made those swirling ideas congeal. Not everyone is a jerk. I’m just pointing out that it’s easier to be a jerk now without consequences.
