you always have the believers though, the ones that earnestly believe that as long as we can clear this hill, it will be all downhill from here, and that’s only (possibly) true outside a capitalist driven system. there is no turning this bus around or stopping on the way.
hence we get naive people building their own version of everything and repeating the same flawed decisions and mistakes over and over again. this perpetuates the “problems which are really consequences” issue on such a monumental scale that you end up doing more harm than good.

i think the closest word for me is “scholar”, as i’m interested in pursuing and sharing knowledge. this has radically changed my perspective - as you aren’t required to understand a problem to solve or give it order - on many things i thought i fully understood before.
