So we still have very rich, wealthy people who capture a lot of economic value from the ecosystem, but because they are not loud about it or they are loud, but only about the charities that they do. So there’s less of a social division. So if you look at our income division, compare that to the jurisdictions with similar income divisions, you don’t see as much opposition, tension between different income groups. And I think that is mostly because the social capital, the relational capital, the community capital that the companies put even and sometimes even especially manufacturing community enterprises to the community. So that is, I think, what bridges together the older martial law generation and the younger freedom generation together. It’s this common good and in many other jurisdictions it would be a violent revolution between the two generations and would be very harmful, I guess, for everyone’s memory traumatic right to think about that. But because we’re thoroughly nonviolent, we’re bound together by that decade of communal work.
