  1. That’s the question, isn’t it? I don’t know what his “ask” is, maybe to ask us to think differently. For me the first step is to be transparent with our own feelings and interactions with the culture we’re living in and to raise our awareness. Maybe the ask is to shake us out of our own apathy or lulled sense of “doing good” and name it as it is: most of our purchases exploit others that are far away from our reality. . Because when we start to get into it it gets overwhelming and confusing. Prof. Nancy Bowen’s cross-stitch comes to mind: “It’s Complicated”. I don’t have any answers from it, more questions and the desire for more conversations and awareness. What’s your take on his ask?
