A fascinating article which makes total sense to me. I’ve always believed that truth is the way to go and if you see something that isn’t “right” you should immediately bring it up, no matter the source of the “untruth.” That puts a person at odds with every power-seeking aspect of the system and their sycophants but it opens one’s eyes to how much BS people swallow everyday and hardly ever give it any thought. It’s a foregone conclusion that we will return to our “wallowing in the mud” of predatory capitalism as “they” gradually release the constraints on their COVID-19 psy-op; that people will accept greatly restricted personal freedoms believing that such will render them physically safer personally. The collective beast hates and fears self-sacrifice. It knows at some subconscious level that it has outgrown its sustainability yet will do anything to not have to reduce itself to a sustainable level. Who is going to say, “Let me die, I’ve had a good (or not so good) long life already and I need to make room for the younger ones.”? So those who would propose “change” must do it within an impossible framework – over population and over consumption – hence their own efforts are based in untruthfulness.
In the second chapter of The Only Planet of Choice, which I am currently re-reading, the authors refer to a book called ‘Beyond the Limits’, about things like global warming and developing a sustainable future. With this in mind, coupled with a Joe Rogan interview I watched yesterday with Aubrey de Grey, a biomedical gerontologist who thinks we can science our way out of the problems caused by over-population (just as people think we can science our way out of “Covid-19” with a vaccine), I found a section titled Truth telling to be quite relevant to our present day, even though the book was published back in 1992 (by Meadows and Randers and sequel to ‘The Limits of Growth’).
The transition to a sustainable society might be helped by the simple
use of words like [visioning, networking, truth-telling, learning, and
