one of the most absurd felling i've got was watching a bridge across a river that split the city in two parts. every day during the rush hour you would see angry people going from point A to point B across the bridge in cars/buses/trucks as if you would almost hear the military march that is orchestrating that madness. and then some 8 hours latter you would see every beaten up person going back from B to A...

but this "change happens, and everything adjusts to it. Once it settles, it's generally an order of magnitude better for everyone than it was before", i don't believe

first of all, i don't believe that everything should adjust in a Borgish assimilating collective way. and that, there is no possible way for something to be "better for everyone". the injustice here is done by the majority to the minority. although it is a lesser injustice than to impose the will of minority over the majority, there still is

the danger lies in the other end of the spectrum of WFH. some jobs (construction) are only possible when you exit your home and go to work. this (the lack of care of people who can WFH to people who cannot) will be used to stop people from exiting their homes for whatever convictions the enforcing side has

some may say, well i don't mind ever exiting my home and being connected to the metaverse, but i for instance don't want to explore the universe in an imaginary ship from a 15k apartment building block. i want to do it like the crew of The Enterprise, unmodified in flesh and blood

"I have no idea what home working will bring, but ... it's got to be better long term than the alternative!"

for you, but it may not be for me. therefor, let us hope that there always is an alternative

cheers
