Jul 18 2015

We’re so slow to act. The world is moving so quickly right now, but the tendency in our officials is to be 15 behind the times of any technological change. Obviously the public consciousness hasn’t caught up to this either.

Heather wrote the article Apocalypse Soon in the latest issue of The Baffler.
