“I thought your talk was one of the most important ones I’ve heard in a long time. I agree that the human services sector is facing unprecedented challenges, but I had based that primarily on the cuts in public funding that are surely coming our way and secondarily on a slow and uncertain economic recovery. The new and unsettling message in your remarks was that technology is so cheap and effective that it is creating a nation that is simultaneously highly productive and harboring a large class of permanently unemployed people. This kind of entrenched income inequality is fundamentally antithetical to everything we prize in our society.”
