I look at this holistically...the all system is heated up and keeps growing at a non linear way. It is like entropy.
Nowadays everything is more. More broken things, more consumerism, more concentration of capital, more gossip, more opinion, more fake news, more hyperbole, more mixing of languages and languaging, more speculation, more philosophical avenues, more industrialized science, more theoretical disagreements, more information and more disinformation, in sum more confusion. Good for the top end of the bell curve horrid for the other 99%.
I often wonder when will it reach the limit and who or what will be in charge...
