Excellent essay.

Somebody gave the kids the special wrench and now they're jumping and playing in the cool rainbow spray of the hydrant.
But fear not; sooner or later the fire department will be along to turn it off.
It's not personal, it's business.
It's human nature.

Thanks! Though, optimist that I am, I think it's gone way to far for any metaphorical fire department to put out this burst of creativity.
And I admire you for it.
I, however, am a cynical and dyspeptic curmudgeon :)
We're both having fun though.
And it does seem that the zeit has way more geist than usual.

Here's to max geist, then! :)
You just gave me the name of my new protagonist.
A gritty, jaded anti-hero with a checkered past, fighting for his brand of freedom in the bowels a post-apocalyptic city state:
Max Geist.

There you go - your hero could be a spiritual cousin to Max Headroom.
And tough like Max Payne, with the style of Peter Max, driving the V8 Ford Falcon Interceptor of Mad Max and hailing from Max North Dakota.
