Capitalist Industrial Civilization = M.A.D.

Now there are some things in the world we can`t change — gravity, entropy, the speed of light, the first and second Laws of Thermodynamics, and our biological nature that requires clean air, clean water, clean soil, clean energy and biodiversity for our health and well being. Protecting the biosphere should be our highest priority or else we sicken and die.

Other things, like capitalism, free enterprise, the economy, currency, the market, are not forces of nature, we invented them. They are not immutable and we can change them. It makes no sense to elevate economics above the biosphere.

Collapse of Industrial Civilization

“This, then, is the legacy we leave to future generations so that we can turn on our lights and computers or make nuclear weapons… Have we, the human species, the ability to mature psychologically in time to avert these catastrophes, or, is it in fact, too late?” ~ Dr. Helen Caldicott

Radical, wide-scale planning should have been executed decades ago in response to the limits to growth study. Instead, we carried on with business-as-usual as the natural world underwent cataclysmic, mass extinction level changes. Every day, the insanity of capitalist industrial civilization(CIC) is on full display as we entertain ourselves with the illusion of token political gestures towards “sustainability”. None of it changes our death march over the cliff of extinction. Nature died long ago with man’s discovery of fossil fuels which fed his terminal overshoot. Any isolated pockets of remaining wilderness are trampled underfoot, amounting to no more than a mere novelty destination commercialized by the tourist industry.

Enslaved to his own…

    Blind Freddy could see the truth displayed here of what is going on behind the facade of human culture. Why can’t everyone else see that? I guess, because they are not looking.

    As a species, sections of the present age of humanity is either too busy entertaining themselves to death, killing each other over some pointlessly trivial ideology, or existing in some state of enforced or self-induced ignorance.

    Not at all a pretty picture, or one that would inspire confidence that we can somehow turn aside from the inevitable consequences of the path we are treading.

      If we don’t turn aside, it doesn’t matter. We will go extinct and natural selection will have proven that a species with our level of intelligence isn’t a viable option for the earth.

      With some people (a very small number), it is the desire to know. Most are genuinely ignorant and the rest are willfully blind.

    Just goes to show who is REALLY in charge when it comes to economic policy and how tightly their web has been woven around protecting their profits at all costs.
