Unions in Nordic countries seem to be very focused on helping when things go wrong - during unemployment, when accidents happen, when there's unlawful treatment of workers.

This is absolutely vital, but I wonder whether focus should also be put to maximise potential, not just minimise risks.

Adult education, helping set up a coops or a voluntary move from wage-earner to self-employment, etc. all seem like worthy of more attention.

What if I told you time did not exist and that is how the Subgenius always wins?

Reality is like an onion, Donkey....
