“... everyone who comes into contact with a child is a teacher who incessantly describes the world to him, until the moment when the child is capable of perceiving the world as it is described.

No Care

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.
