Hi Alex, I’d never even considered if the top 10% would want to do anything. The 1% does seem to be trying to go to Mars.

I don’t even feel like it’s a crazy sacrifice, Green New Deal type policies make life better. Renewable energy smells better, our streets would be quieter, it would create a new wave of innovation. There would be some losers, like some bankers and oil barons and the Saud family, but they suck.

I think perhaps to portray it as less of a sacrifice and more of an opportunity. Do we really want to use last century’s technology forever?
