Melancholy Monday?

Have just been out for dinner on my first (jet lagged) night back in Phnom Penh. We were out rather late, and the car ride home was a lesson in ‘first world-ism’. With children out working, late into the night, on a busy road, I was left saddened by the lost potential. A world that turns it’s back on children will surely get what it deserves.

I’ve always been inclined to social limits on capitalism, but nothing made the need more clear than what happens in poor places with no rules. It’s a debate that the developed world seems to ignore, even as the triumphs of the post War middle class are eroded.

I hope something good comes of this project.
