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."

And not everyone will agree on what should be improved, and what is "part of the human condition" and should be left alone.
