David Suzuki explains the fallacy of conventional economics, in an interview done for the BBC. The song is “Outro” by M83.
This makes me think that sometimes people restrain themselves because of some man-made rules that, in many cases, are applied differently around the world. I mean, if we are all humans, why are there different rules and laws in each country? Of course that means that those are not universal rules or even useful rules to be guided from, otherwise everybody in the world would agree on them and understand its applications.
But that take us to another issue. If these rules are not universal we can say that they belong to the imaginary consent of each society. And what else is imaginary? I’m thinking of the “crisis” now. In fact there is no need for crisis or debt slavery or trust ratings, those are not real problems, they were just made up by our own imagination. We can stop them anytime. Because what makes a society is their citizens, their real needs and their ideas and dreams. We currently have the ability to feed everyone (how much food is wasted everyday?), to give a house to everyone (how many houses you know that are empty?), to satisfy the energy needs of everyone (we have already the technology even if its not so efficient - but it can be).
So, the great challenge of society nowadays is to wake up from this imaginary (and unpleasant) dream and just interact in fact with reality (at least the reality we now know).
Everybody knows already what to do, the only factor missing here is really make it happen!
Humans, a planetary disease.
