Making the Transition
It appears that we are at the end of an era. A Dosage-receiver remarked that new eras often grow out of the ashes of the preceding era. The skills of capitalism will apply in the new conditions, it is assumed. Nevertheless, The Doser wonders if he, and people like him, are going to be able to "make it" in new circumstances. He remembers a seasoned welfare client who said to him: "If things get really bad, I will survive, because I know how. But you are not likely to survive because you don't know how."
