One theme in Religion in the Balance is the ultimate failure of market-ism and consumerism to provide us with what we need: meaning, connection, purpose, relationship. This shell of a building is suggestive, the perfect location for a declaration of current emptiness.

What’s hopeful is the humor– the playful, self-deprecating irony that implicates all of us as accountable for the depletion of the stock. Accepting responsibility is an authentic religious act.
