It's one thing to strive and fail together, as happens in equal participation startups and fully shared cooperatives, but in the corporate world, the failure is mostly felt by the wage slaves. Too often a golden parachute appears for the leadership.

The path to independence from wage slavery is much harder in countries where the cost of failure is too high. The wage slave in the USA faces bankruptcy and starvation upon loss of income.

This trick kinda works for ending conversations too.

People need some kinda punch line to feel that a proper social protocol has terminated the conversation.
The ending wit can be kinda random too.
They care less that the phrase doesn't make sense, so long as you don't just back away silently like homer simpson reversing into that bush.

Uh i almost forgot a small social trick:

Start by just saying something.

It seems people like it better when one just says something meaningless rather than be silent.
It lets them know that this is an environment where one can enable one's output.
Start social interactions this way and it'll be less awkward after that initial hurdle because the other person is gonna share the burden of generating random crap topics to chat about.

"The Woke Left v. the Alt-Right: A New Study Shows They’re More Alike Than Either Side Realizes"

I'm sick of the term "woke left", let's coin the "unwoke left" instead.

Wanted to watch some TEDs talk
But they too damn long
And the intro jingle criples my bones
