Money

Money can always be ill spent, or squandered, or misused. If one has enough of it, one fears that it will be lost; if one does not, one fears that it will never come. Come the Guanaco Revolution, money will be a thing of the past. Fourier had the right idea, only he focused on the lemonade and never thought about South America. In Argentina, in the abode of a certain camelid, his ideas live on.

Squirrels

Squirrels live in a state of constant fear: on the one hand, that they have not acquired sufficient nuts, and, on the other hand, if they have, that they will lose these nuts to theft, predation, or overeating. Even when they are placed in conditions of complete sufficiency, their desire to hoard and guard nuts persists.

The separation between the drives of squirrels and the neuroses of man is paper-thin; both are driven by conditions of scarcity.

Come the Guanaco Revolution, these drives will become maladaptive.

Watch this space over the next few years.
