“That’s the flaw with words. They always force us to feel enlightened, but when we turn around to face the world they always fail us and we end up facing the world as we always have, without enlightenment. For this reason, a sorcerer seeks to act rather than to talk and to this effect he gets a new description of the world – a new description where talking is not that important, and where new acts have new reflections”

No Care

n

Over the past few months I’ve had a concentrated share of interactions with service providers (mostly in an effort to disassociate myself from them as much as possible). I have interacted with a diversity of service providers online and offline, long and short relationships … all kinds. Across the board I have encountered what I can only describe as a systemic lack of care.

I’ve encountered aggression, ignorance (both the stupid and no response kinds), inefficiency, mechanized (insensitive and usually useless). There seems to be a drastic shortage of care or awareness that a service is being provided. There is something cold and distant at best … at other times it seems to be a part of a systemic approach geared towards entrapment and exploitation.

I suppose this is both a fault of existing service providers and an opportunity for future ones. Lack of care drains everyone involved (except maybe stake-holders who continue to profit in the presence of abuse). Care nourishes everyone involved. There has to be caring.
