Om Malik:

Today, I was thinking about our future post-pandemic reality. A contactless future is going to become obvious. With the retail and restaurant sectors struggling and shrinking, we will start seeing the places which make us part of a society, a neighborhood, humans begin to go away. A dry cleaner here, a coffee shop there. What will remain of society?

What I think we are actually seeing here is the consequences of a society build around capitalism. In such a society everything is defined by a value placed on it by a market rather than having innate value.
