The original natural earth is almost gone. Invaders have stolen, replaced, enslaved or destroyed it. The invasion of the Americas began in 1492 when Columbus was found lost at sea. Wave after wave of brutal invaders followed bringing a mind disease and invasive species. The world today would look like Mars to the original inhabitants.
Why is it important to understand what civilization is? Because you cannot improve or cope with something unless you know what it is and what actually is causing it.
Besides recycling what can we do that makes the biggest difference for a better world? Hint: Recycling is not on the list.
To save the world you have to know what is causing the problem. There is one thing destroying the world. Everything else is just a symptom of this one idea.
Society is made up six concentric circles or rings all getting smaller and more enlightened as one moves inward. This is another way to look at enlightening.
First and larger than all of the other rings of society combined are TV watching zombies. They will live and die oblivious to the real world around them.
What is as ubiquitous as air and influences your entire life?
Answer: The Control System.
The Control system is 6,000 to 10,000 years old. It began as the Agricultural Revolution. The Agricultural or Neolithic Revolution has been mislabeled essentially on purpose. If it were correctly titled as the Power Revolution, there would be social unrest.
Democracy has been selected by capitalism as the default political system because it allows for the widest control platform instead of, for example, a monarchy with a single influential family. Democracy allows the most people to participate in the control of the political process. Watching the circus that is this year’s election cycle, we might want to re-consider this sacred cow. Is there a better way?
