life outside of Plato’s cave is lonely indeed

My name is William Maggos (email). I’m frustrated by our inability to solve our big problems and depressed by how it feels to live a modern life. And I believe these failures exist because of a general inability by the public to understand and embrace what makes cultural progress possible, at the individual level and as a society. We can get back to improving the lives of the most people by fixing that which prevents us from working together better.
