I've had a few wiggings on here and the Other Place. As for the guilty conscience syndrome, it's a hangover from my orthodox christian upbringing.

It could be we're witnessing (in my case in old age) a major turning point in general. Sort of scary really ... I have every sympathy for those youngsters who may well have to bite the bullet on this one. And given the state of the world, and the people who are currently running it, that's going to be a f****** large calibre bullet.

One can kill the goose by overworking the few or by having too many for the goosefood available. To have some plain old ducks and moorhens in proper trade as well is beneficial. A "diverse portfolio" is a universal defence. Perhaps preventing great excess of benefits but equally preventing the worst of losses (let us all hope C19 does not cause the pundits to choose another route as there doesn't seem to be one).
