In a policymic.com article titled
"NASA Study Concludes
When Civilization Will End, And It's Not Looking Good for Us"
, we're posed with the jarring fact that the age-old struggle between the "Elite"
and the "Commoners" will inevitably consume and destroy human society just as it has done in the past, however on an unprecedented scale of course.
The article states that:
all societal collapses over the past 5,000 years have involved both "the stretching of resources due to the strain placed on the ecological carrying
capacity" and "the economic stratification of society into Elites [rich] and Masses (or "Commoners") [poor]."
...according to Safa Motesharrei of the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center along with a team of natural and social scientists.
The 1% are going to strangle the planet in their insatiable greed:
This "Elite" population restricts the flow of resources accessible to the "Masses", accumulating a surplus for themselves that is high enough to
strain natural resources. Eventually this situation will inevitably result in the destruction of society.
This is news, my friends:
As of last year, humans are using more resources than the Earth can replenish and the planet's distribution of resources among its terrestrial
inhabitants is massively unequal. This is what happened to Rome and the Mayans....
The mathematicians are basically saying, in all realistic and even probabilistic terms, that; the data shows that we are doomed within a few decades
unless we take a drastic turn in a better direction. One that is not so obcessed with technology, because, as the report states:
Technological change can raise the efficiency of resource use, but it also tends to raise both per capita resource consumption and the scale of
resource extraction, so that, absent policy effects, the increases in consumption often compensate for the increased efficiency of resource use.
I really don't think we can do it. Whatever "it" is that we need to do, I truly think the majority of us are too stupid and/or lazy to fix it at this
point. As of last year
we passed the tipping point. And as stated in the article:
Elite power will buffer "detrimental effects of the environmental collapse until much later than the Commoners," allowing the privileged to "continue
'business as usual' despite the impending catastrophe."
...so when exactly are people going to stop writing their bleeding Congressmen with wishes of a better world? It's no better than writing Santa a
wonderful list of things that you REALLY REALLY need. You're going to get a pair of pajamas... IF you're lucky. The Elite will give us exactly what
THEY feel we need to survive, and not much more. Look around.
It's time to shape up or ship out, and guess what?
