I remember, as a very small child, being pushed chaired up to the center of our village by my mother.
She would go in the electricity board and pay their bill.
Then in the water board and pay their bill. Then the same for gas, then coal.
All separate but mostly controlled by our government. You could also go in the dairy. Then in the wet fish shop. Then in the bakery. Then in the Post Office.
None of these places now exist, yet that village is now a large town, all gone, as not “efficient”.
I have worked, years ago in local factories, making machines, not one factory is left?
I suppose it must be because of “globalisation or commodification”.
But whatever, it is a downgrading of community, a downgrading of local resilience.
