It has always been that war is the ultimate stauncher to a failed system. It never mends it just feeds the greed of the top pile allowing piles of people to be slaughtered and incinerated below. The cycle then picks up, is energised and starts its necromantic journey again.
This Neanderthal approach like modern (last couple of hundred years) economic principles has been driven deep into a collective psyche never allowed to question its validity, let alone efficiency. Sacred cows continue to fart soiling our atmosphere.
Those that suffer are always people. Division between lack and plenty is ever expanding. That is the result of such growth visualising the truth against the tired mantra of the need for ever greater economic growth. Again a huge lie driven into society’s mind in order to enrich and benefit the few.
Whether left, right or middle of the road political espousing creates a variation on the overall economic model of the day makes not a jot’s worth of difference. It is all based on what one advisor and economic theorist, W.W. Rostow, an ear to John F. Kennedy, called The Airplane Ride. It takes off, goes higher and higher, in other words growth, growth, growth. What he never was able to explain was how the plane landed. What could always be achieved from those heights was an ability to bomb enough destruction to rape resources and refuel the in-flight trajectory of a seemingly endless flight.
Flight it was and is, though properly termed it should be called a flight of fantasy and we all know where that lands!
That we all are incessantly taught to accept these ludicrous fantasies is as much down to us accepting lies and BS and staying content in our ignorance as the irresponsibility of those peddling theses self serving, specious precepts. For economic rules and theories based on 19th and 20th century fantasies, themselves hubristically honed into ‘scientific fact’ – the science of economics – surely in the 21st century we can see how this archaic nonsense becomes the very core of all our economic woes.
It’s as if we are informed we have flown to the Moon yet no one made the rocket to engage that journey, yet the image of that having happened is peddled and ingrained with such force and certainty on the collective psyche as to be accepted as truth. Critical thinking anyone? Just because one may be hit hard with a hammer does not correlate with the hammer being right.
We all know the usual suspects manipulating their gargantuan wealth through promulgating these huge lies and perceptions. Sure we can point them out, expose them for the charlatans they are and the crippling inequality they forge but far better than all of that is to introduce, educate the next generations to implement a whole new economics based on Nature’s way and natural law – that of organic continued growth, management and order. Nature never lets anything suffer willingly. Of course there are natural cycles of birth, growth and death. Extinction is part of that yet never specifically targeted by any one group for its own emolument. That has been a purely human construct.
This natural economic design is able to deal with so many of the malaises we presently suffer under, including environmental destruction, depletion, divisive rich/poor chasms and war.
“We have an economy that needs to grow, whether or not it makes us thrive.
We need an economy that makes us thrive, whether or not it grows.”
In ancient times war was sorted by pitching the best warrior of one side against the best of the opponent. Armies may have faced each other on the field but ultimately the outcome of a match would solve the winner/loser argument of two warriors. That set against the context of modern extermination is as civilised as it gets in war!
At this point I wish to defer to far wiser and more informed sources than my own simple views. You will find Renegade Inc.‘s Ross Ashcroft talking with economist Kate Raworth who offers a superb exposé on this new paradigm. Beautifully illustrated for even the lowliest intellect to comprehend the masterful new ways forward. I cannot recommend it more strongly.
War was never the answer to any problem. Peaceful co-existence is what truly reflects the natural order of all things. Of course there will be stand offs and confrontation yet sorting differences out must become far more adult than the crude weapons of war, vengeance, rape, bombs, pillaging and empires.
We all have the capacity to become more intelligent, evolving into our greater and best self. There are more and more minds and hearts out there with rock solid solutions. It is up to all of us to embrace them, connect and communicate the messages of real growth, true evolutionary ways and stop dead the continual flow of negativity, despondency, despair and destruction.
