Received printed version of Low-Tech magazine which I want to give as a present.

> In 2019, the world’s billionaires, only 2,153 people, had more wealth than 4.6 billion people.

>If you saved $10,000 a day since the
building of the pyramids in Egypt you
would have only one-fifth the average
fortune of the 5 richest billionaires.

Google is more obnoxious every year, it's super hard to disable even basic things.

I don't remember seeing this comic co-written by Doctorow before. German libraries are pretty dope I must say.

The last reply was three facepalm emojis, now this. This person really knows how to argue, wow.
