Quote du Jour: Gordon White of Rune Soup

“The rules of this world were simply not built for your benefit. And in an era of extreme economic change whose only corollary is the first Industrial Revolution, there are no safe harbours left, only the comparative safety of the ocean. Your goal is not to find a quiet, secure job somewhere near an affordable suburb, settle down and then wait for death. The economy that supported such ambitious goals is ending. The developed world is now in a state of permanent structural instability. Seeking after stability is a recipe for homelessness in your late middle age years. In today’s world, security only comes from embracing opportunity. And opportunity is not randomly distributed in either space or time. It must be pursued and seized.” — Gordon White, The Chaos Protocols
