I think you may just be more observant than most people. I think everyone feels that squeezing feeling to an extent. It’s really happening. Did you know we’ve now reached a point in this country where 3 people have more wealth than the bottom half of the population?
I agree on those frameworks being crazy. The sad part is the basic ideas are dead simple, but people have larded so many plugins and patterns on them that I think it’s more complex than ever.
