From the Chairman, Stephen Freedman
A few generations ago our professions left us with surnames such as Fisher, Carpenter, Barber, Shoemaker, and Potter. Those trade names – now all nearly extinct lines of work, reflect an estrangement from our human nature, and the products of our labor. The joy we once derived from all of those natural activities, the vocations which supported our hunter-gatherer ancestors, have been specialized and sent to factories, or outsourced to other countries.
