So maybe a “general account” is not what is needed so much as equipment for acting wisely and lovingly — in a Christlike way — this day. A Franciscan-Daoist ethic for a surveillance-capitalist hate-media world. What that might look like is something I plan to think about a lot in the coming year.
I often think of surveillance capitalism as the Eye of Sauron. Maybe the needed equipment would look something like a fellowship. Franciscan-Daoist sounds to me like a hobbit and wizard ethic, earthy and ethereal.
