Why Reclaim Capitalism?

In many industries, the fiduciary responsibility of the company and the best interest of the consumers do not align. For whatever reason, capitalism gets the blame, not centralization.

Since the pandemic and Zoomversity started a few weeks into this project, there was a lot that I had to acclimate to. I started the project with expectations of using 3D software and was able to figure out how to work from home despite the challenges. I am happy to have learned how to adjust and go with the flow. 

If I were to do this project again, I would focus on simplying the narrative more.
