Mary Wells: How Far Down Is Down?

I don’t think anyone is certain what to call it. It may require a new word because so much of the world is having the same problems so it could get worse and worse all around. I have listened to and read a lot of complaints and fears but haven’t heard anyone I respect for cool, clear and superior thinking estimate how far down is down. It is election time and no one wants to lay out ugly possibilities and the side effects, but until we face those — from sane, reputable sources — we won’t back ideas or painful plans for slowing and stopping the slide … and so it will continue.
