Thanks for this second thought. It is truly amazing how fully most of us have focused on succeeding in the game, in lieu of allowing ourselves the mental bandwidth to consider that the game itself is misdirected, as much as 150 years of it has taken hold. Before modernization—before agriculture—there was nothing BUT the infinite game: all sharing, all stewardship, all 'long game'. The current narrative is toxic, and we're all paying the price. Luckily, there are alternatives. I listed several of them in another response—to Andrzej—if you're inclined to read them.
