We’re closer to environmental disaster than ever before. We need a new story for our relationship with the Earth, one that goes beyond science and religion.
The best article I have read yet about the dilemma of civilian gun ownership. Highly Recommended.
I highly recommend this article whether you work in an industry (i.e. Media) or live in a country (i.e. USA) collapsing under overly complex systems. The best quote I believe is the last paragraph.
When ecosystems change and inflexible institutions collapse, their members disperse, abandoning old beliefs, trying new things, making their living in different ways than they used to. It’s easy to see the ways in which collapse to simplicity wrecks the glories of old. But there is one compensating advantage for the people who escape the old system: when the ecosystem stops rewarding complexity, it is the people who figure out how to work simply in the present, rather than the people who mastered the complexities of the past, who get to say what happens in the future.
