Entire civilizations have been weeded out when their belief system proved maladaptive to a changing environment. Creeping normalcy refers to slow trends concealed in noisy fluctuations that people get used to without comment, while landscape amnesia describes forgetting how different the landscape looked 20—50 years ago Diamond The primary mandate of capitalism is to protect and grow capital.
Note that the Permian Mass extinction is estimated to have happened anywhere over the course ofyears to 15 million years. Cultural memes are a much more significant driver of human evolution than genetic evolution. Left-leaning people nearly always accept the science because it goes along with their criticisms of capitalism which externalizes social and environmental costs for the benefit of just a few at the top of the economic hierarchy.
Thus we see parasitic Trump surrounding himself with right-wing, climate denying, fossil fuel corporatists and insiders who will be doing everything in their power to dismantle health and environmental regulations including privatizing social services which are barriers to capitalist expansion.
A prescient observation by Ugo Bardi from earlier this year: This is all coming at a time when humans are fast destroying the ecosystems underpinning the very foundation upon which human civilization has developed over thousands of years.
I am not sure I know of a species which has learnt how to limit its own growth. Trump is…an unavoidable consequence of resource depletion.
Not even when our basic life support systems are being torn asunder do the vast majority question the path we are on. Truth be told, the corporate elite have long written off all those people living hand to mouth. Unfortunately species which transcend their environmental resources can hardly survive — the final arbiter of the climate impasse will be nature itself.
From lofty corporate boardrooms to the filthy streets of skid row, the mass of humanity is following the same biological script of overshoot and collapse seen in every organism from bacteria to reindeer herds.
Collapse of Industrial Civilization Civilizations are living organisms striving to survive and develop through predictable stages of birth, growth, maturation, decline and death.
People will try to adapt until they cannot, and myths will be created to explain away harsh realities.
Mass migration of climate refugees will only further destabilize governments, stoke ethnic and cultural tensions, and give rise to fascist political movements. Trump is a symptom of the ongoing breakdown of the social pact…capitalizing on this breakdown by…playing on the attempt of the white former middle class to maintain at least some of its previous prosperity and privileges.
Open-ended growth is the psychology of a cancer cell. Open-ended growth appears to be inherent in nature, all the way from the DNA to the arthropods to mammals, including humans. He likens the denial of climate change impacts by leading politicians, including former US president George W.Even now the vast majority of first world nation populations are completely oblivious to the unfolding environmental cataclysms that are closing in from every side.
