Go ahead, laugh. That’s right, laugh at all those people in the past who believed in crazy ideas our modern society has long since discarded. You know what I’m talking about. Notions such as the world is flat, the Biblical flood wiped out the dinosaurs, or homosexuals should hide their sexual identity unless they want wholesome, peaceful, virtuous, moral people who believe in a loving God to beat the crap out of them.

I’ve got another hoary maxim to throw into the dustbin of history (pop quiz: who came up with that phrase? Yep, you guessed correctly, Trotsky. Which fact is going to cause me to go into a longer parenthetical than I intended. Early in my career I worked for a hot technology company. One day at work I made a reference to Trotsky.  I can no longer recall the context, and a colleague of mine, who was in charge of an entire department, didn’t know who he was. You, dear reader, certainly are aware Leon Trotsky, the Marxist revolutionary who helped overthrow the Czar in the October Revolution of 1917, subsequently had a falling out with Stalin, and was ultimately murdered while in exile in Mexico. But you knew all that. Anyway, my wife, who is a highly educated European, blew a gasket after I came home from work and casually mentioned over a dinner of pot roast and gravy a person responsible for managing a multi-million dollar budget had no knowledge of one of the key figures of 20th century history).

Let’s get back to the dustbin. Throw in there the innocent belief cutting edge technology would cure our economic ills forever, eliminate the business cycle and usher in an endless era of prosperity.  Well, the technology has arrived more or less as promised – witness JDate, Grindr and Tinder - but a whole bunch of regular folks are running scared, financially speaking. How did this happen? Why haven’t the stunning advances of future, which we stand on the precipice of, made us feel more secure? Or, as many people are asking, “Dude, where’s my job?”
