It’s ironic: since I am using the “free” version of WordPress to publish, they occasionally place ads at the end of my posts. I want to point out that I have no control over the content of any ads that appear, and sadly, they usually advertise products that are the very opposite of the values that I am writing about.
I apologize for these incongruities! Isn’t that the position in which we find ourselves so often? We are embedded in systems that infiltrate all aspects of our lives, even as we imagine a better way of living.
