See the Moon, only $10

Our societies are dangerously mercantilist. When profit motive underlies most interaction, our humanity suffers.

Sure we need tools for living that cost money. But social leadership can & should limit annoyances. Persistent & repeated marketing calls; beggars camped on every main street; tricks & scams of puffery and advertising and spam; the public needs protections -- but monied interests never cease huckstering. Nothing is sacred. Try buying quiet: all the world's For Sale

• Expect Generosity and exemplify civility

• Constrain Commercialism

• Don't Vote Huckster.
