More on #economyiscare in English

„On the most general level, we suggest that caring be viewed as a specific activity that includes everything that we do to maintain, continue, and repair our world so that we can live in it as well as possible. That world includes our bodies, our selves, and our environment, all of which we seek to interweave in a complex, life-sustaining web.“
