I just want to state unequivocally that the power NEVER went out during the Summer when I was a kid. During the Winter, sure… because a lightning strike hit a transformer somewhere.
But we are a country on the cusp of having unreliable utilities when they are needed most. Everything around you is infrastructure supporting your life.
Maybe child care isn’t key infrastructure in YOUR life. But it very well could be for a Lineman maintaining the electricity supplying your home or business.
If you believe that infrastructure is simply a layer of asphalt laid down to create a road. Then you have the same world view as someone in the late 1800s.
