For Rory’s Friday Four Questions
|Do you think society could survive without governmental authority or structure?
No, but it might survive better with a better structure. I think the past four years have proven what happens when the wrong person is given authority and certainly pointed out the weaknesses in our governmental system in the U.S. It has been a shock to see just how bigoted and short-sighted approximately half of the American population is. I’d hate to see those people given free rein. We’ve already seen it, to a degree.
|Do we really need all the technology we have?
Clearly, we don’t, but we’ve become dependent upon it and it has become a game of sorts to see just how far we can go. Game urinals in Japan where you control the game action with your urine stream are a perfect example.
|Everyone has a passion that can absorb them for hours and that includes talking about it with others for hours if left unchecked – do you have such a passion and if so – what is it?
Art and writing. I get so engrossed that six hours can pass and seem like a half hour. I can’t imagine life without these compulsions.
|What have you found yourself thinking a lot of late and that seemingly will not leave your brain alone?
Death and how/who will deal with all my stuff. You can have no idea. Books that I’ve written and done nothing with.. sitting in files. The utter horror that so many people supported Trump. and still do.
