8 – The vision of our current economic paradigm is Human Progress through ‘Unlimited Growth’…

The vision of our current economic paradigm is Human Progress through ‘Unlimited Growth’.

This concept is irrational and unsustainable. It is irrational because it goes against common sense: How can ‘unlimited growth’ be advocated in an environment of limited resources? And it is unsustainable because it is consuming and destroying the environment on which human life depends.

But although we are beginning to realize that this economic vision is destroying the same environment without which we cannot exist, it continues to dominate most of what we call our ‘civilized’ world: Corporations have become rapacious and insatiable monsters that pillage natural resources in the name of ‘Progress’ without an iota of concern for the consequences of their actions; governments have become the enablers of corporations, permitting their horrendous crimes to go unaccounted for; our universities have become for-profit corporations and have narrowed their curriculums to favor and perpetuate this destructive economic vision.

With a world overwhelmed by war and hate and poverty, it is inconceivable that the creativity and the ingenuity of the human mind continues to be indoctrinated into accepting and enabling this devastating vision, while insights like Bell’s Theorem (see post #7), which can further our knowledge of our relationship with the natural world from which we come into existence, are reserved exclusively for those few who understand the language of higher mathematics.

We are too smart to continue to stand still while we watch the destruction of our world in the name of ‘Progress’, especially when the natural sciences already hold some of the answers to a sustainable paradigm.
