While UN Scientists Prepare For The End Of Capitalism
This articles was published a few months ago, but please bear in mind that it is how the meritocrats allow the truth to be hidden in plai sight as a way to obtain populations’ consent for what is coming — and create widespread apathy by giving the impression that they tackle and handle the issues righfully.
As the era of cheap energy comes to an end, capitalist thinking is struggling to solve the huge problems facing humanity.
INDEPENDENT.UK| Capitalism as we know it is over. So suggests a new report commissioned by a group of scientists appointed by the UN secretary general. The main reason? We’re transitioning rapidly to a radically different global economy, due to our increasingly unsustainable exploitation of the planet’s environmental resources and the shift to less efficient energy sources.
EARTH CUSTODIANS | We beg t o differ, Capitalism was never meant to be efficient but help some at the top collude, we had to go through the industrialization and now the technological eras to see that this “endless profit seeking and spend until we drop” way of life is irrefutably and deadly flawed.
Thinking in terms of profit is a wrong premise because when we endorse the latter then must agree to have access to unlimited credit. This is a deadly catch 22 that never can end well. A society that is fully transparent makes no profit.
Profits are always the result of lies, ignorance or concealment, because Nature does not support greed and wealth. When we die we do not take anything with us, so it is absolutely pointless to pass down this illusion to future generations.
The new paper provides a bruising indictment of contemporary capitalism’s complicity in the ecological crisis. Grantham’s verdict is that “capitalism and mainstream economics simply cannot deal with these problems” – namely, the systematic depletion of planetary ecosystems and environmental resources
Indictment of contemporary capitalism? Let’s rather say an indicment of most economists — and their institutions — who have silently supported the pillage of planet over the last 3 decades at least: the slippery slope we have embarked upon was already foreseeable in the 80s, but profit seeking got the last word. Obviously.
Yes ure, the system cannot fix itself otherwise all the so-called profits accumulated and billionaires’ bank accounts would have to be used to fix the mess,… all of which would evidence the fact that an ethical — and transparent — economy is a zero-growth economy. So where do we go from there? One can no longer banking on the igorance of others t make a living, thinking that it is just the law of the fittest. The purpose of Life is to collaborate.
Climate change and species extinctions are accelerating even as societies are experiencing rising inequality, unemployment, slow economic growth, rising debt levels, and impotent governments. Contrary to the way policymakers usually think about these problems these are not really separate crises at all.
The article speaks of a new breed of economists, sure, but why did it take that long for the “mainstream” to acknowledge the interconnectedness between all academic fields, while this knowledge has been available for centuries already? Draw your own conclusions. How do yospell the word “scam”. New breed of economists? “New breed of economisys” seems kind of am oxymoron.
These crises are part of the same fundamental transition. The new era is characterised by inefficient fossil fuel production and escalating costs of climate change.
Let’s talk of the climate change briefly and thank the “wayback machine” at archive.org: The NASA site used to have a page titled “What are the primary forcings of the Earth system?… *NASA states: The Sun is the primary forcing of Earth’s climate system. Sunlight warms our world…. According to scientists’ models of Earth’s orbit and orientation toward the Sun indicate that our world should be just beginning to enter a new period of cooling — perhaps the next ice age.*
Conventional capitalist economic thinking can no longer explain, predict or solve the workings of the global economy in this new age.
The corruption of knowledge by any monetary driven structure, which can not function without establishing an arbitrary system of value (value being subjective and thus volatile), is now showing cracks all over. We ought to prepare for a challenging human experience, really.
At the same time, our hunger for energy is driving what the paper refers to as “sink costs.” The greater our energy and material use, the more waste we generate, and so the greater the environmental costs…. And the biggest “sink cost”, of course, is climate change.
The only real solution that will do is to start producing and consuming consciously, but this would mean that most industries would have to go belly up, so let’s run the money printing press instead. Crises are assets because problems are way more marketable!
“We live in an era of turmoil and profound change in the energetic and material underpinnings of economies. The era of cheap energy is coming to an end,” says the paper.
This line above is unfortunately foreshadowing UBI and rationing. Our situation is appalling, and the best way to initiate a healthy transition is by doing exactly what Earth Custodians and others have advocated in so many occasions already: we must allow the system to unravel by itself by minimalizing our participation. Cutting household spending by 15-25% will do it.
No matter how we look at the picture, we also must start thinking differently about Reality, we cannot keep dismissing the metaphysical component of Reality, which is exactly why the “controllers” have ruled for so many centuries already.
It is the understanding of metaphysics that ultimately determines the correct interpretation of the Trivium and Quatrivium… all of which shape the concept of Voluntaryism
