What's wrong with the status quo?
Chris Phoenix: Tom Craver recently wrote on our blog, "I suspect if you want to use MM to break out of the current situation, a solar powered wish box is pretty much required."
That got me thinking: what is "the current situation?" Tom was answering a post about the rich-poor gap. But depending on how you look at it, there is room for several kinds of improvement. And not everyone will agree on what should be improved, and what is "part of the human condition" and should be left alone.
