Sorry Jeff. I don't see the current situation as a countertop appliance analogy with some arbitrarily imposed settings.
I made a remark sometime after 2016 to a relative that we already lost most of the New Deal consensus and solidarity after much struggle. We would probably be lucky to land somewhere around the gilded age. We hit the gilded age of inequality a couple of years ago. That's some remarkably regressive speed.
But I'll play along. What does it mean if a blender has insane reverse settings?
