Ethical Burden

These are the brutal facts related to global geopolitcs and environmental issues: we buy things. Those things are not produced in a regenerative way. The fossil fuel economy is still 80%. We all participate in this, because we don't have a viable alternative to the gas station or Walmart. This has ethical burdens which we all share: wars, poverty, and other resource scarcity issues that manifest in a scarcity-based economic system. The solution is conceptually simple: to cultivate a mindset of abundance that leads to the practice of the open, collaborative economy. This is not a guilt trip. It's a callout for ethical entrepreneurship.
