“Do we know what it means to live well?”

Empire after empire has reached through conquest after conquest for the triumphs of opulence–and all have not just fallen; all have been prone to the glitches and crashes inherent in it’s calculus.┬áNot merely injustice between people–but injustice within people; lives spent in frenzied pursuit of the trivially forgettable.

But please, somebody, say it simple.
