I’m sad, mad, heartbroken and confused. And I’m frightened. Just like my clients, family, and neighbors I’m asking myself what to do? What to do?
I haven’t figured out great answers. And not figuring out answers really pisses me off. I’m used to having answers, and I have great skills for finding answers. So not figuring it out is frustrating and frightening.
What I have figured out, is that there is much cruelty around us. Marginalization and harassment is cruelty. Bullying and oppression is cruelty. And George Floyd’s murder is cruelty. That wasn’t justice, it was cruel. It’s one thing for a cop to restrain someone, I get that, but it’s another thing to hold someone until they go limp and choke to death. Cruelty is behavior that causes pain or suffering; but it’s also callous indifference to that pain and suffering. Cruelty shows up as racism, and also as anti-Semitism, xenophobia, chauvinism, and bigotry.

2001 was one of those years for me. I lost my job at a tech company during the dot-com bust. Then terrorists flew planes into the twin towers. It was an anxiety-ridden year for many people.
2020 was bad enough with the pandemic. Now, unrest is sweeping across America.
Record unemployment. A deadly virus. Major cities setting curfews as people burn cars in the streets. It seems apocalyptic.

Claiming that giveaways like tax incentives do not work, that the very idea they could work has been discredited, the article concludes that states cannot afford the tens of billions of dollars they have been spending on these programs. It argues that this is a matter of life and death, because the cost of these incentives is endangering public services that both families and employers depend on.
