Clearly these are the days of redemption. Much is being revealed (https://unrig.net/?utm_content=12265081&utm_medium=Email&utm_name=Id&utm_source=Actionetics&utm_term=Email&fbclid=IwAR0DBezGThCxamkSoHCK2eE-5kJikdg4n_-HFwHVnS8hqV-MroGL5obK6XM). The treatment of Julian Assange is emblematic of what is at stake.
It seems that all of humanity on every level, individually and collectively, is being challenged to the extreme, and it could get worse, especially if we don't meet those challenges. Everyone is being called to rise to their highest, to come into their power. It is a do or die situation.
People are dying from the virus or whatever it is. Governments are restricting our liberties deeper and wider every moment. Many people have no source of income. Relationships are aggravated and at risk, suicide is on the rise. Clearly the capitalist system has and is failing us and is bringing us to the brink, having led to the destruction of our biosphere which all life depends on.
The pressure most people feel throughout their lives to be in the money stream, to find a viable living income is extreme and lasts virtually every day of our lives. People are so accustomed to this and it is so widespread, that it is hardly questioned and it seems totally accepted, when in reality it is not acceptable. Each day 25,000 people die from lack of food (https://www.un.org/en/chronicle/article/losing-25000-hunger-every-day#:~:text=Each%20day%2C%2025%2C000%20people%2C%20including,million%20into%20poverty%20and%20hunger.) Compared to daily deaths by covid 19, though these figures are dubious, the highest ever is around 17,500 (https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/coronavirus-death-toll/).
The immediate danger of the virus has garnered the world's attention and engendered huge actions, much of which has caused even more damage and taking away our civil liberties and our abilities to survive with money, while putting aside the necessary actions to avoid the much more egregious danger of the oncoming extinction events caused by our disregard for the biosphere which we depend on. One needs no psychiatric training to observe how insane humanity seems to be.
Just the fact that many of our leaders are willing to bomb, kill and maim huge numbers of people that have created the gigantic world-wide refugee problems with impunity for whatever reasons they can produce to justify their actions is another clear sign that our leaders are psychopaths. The insane being led by psychopaths, the blind leading the blind; welcome extinction.
Let's assume that there are still many exceptions to the rule, that there are still a small percentage of humanity who can see what is going on and what needs to be done. Our hope lies with them (us). We are the ones that the fate of humanity hinges on, in my humble opinion. We cannot look to the World Economic Forum to save us, they want to continue with the same suicidal structures, tinted green, with a humanitarian glaze, pounding for the "4th industrial revolution". They are not calling for the needed profound systemic changes that will bring us to a just, regenerative, and ethical world where the needs of all humanity will finally be made easily accessible and all will be included within the human family.
Every day that our species is under the control of these insane oligarchs, our chances for freedom and survival dims and this is what first must be addressed. This is what is perhaps the most important of the multitudinous amount of things that are being overlooked and not addressed. It matters not, the changing of the guards, as history so clearly demonstrates. What really is clearly needed is to restructure all forms of governing/ organizing/ managing from top down, centralized, vertical to bottom up, decentralized, horizontal which is much more democratic, eliminates politicians and lobbyists, is more effective and efficient, by and for the people, totally feasible, and virtually incorruptible: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wywMhg604W8&feature&fbclid=IwAR3HcZvrdRJvRNqMRZ3m6t3hvuac7bTXlxnQn-WjutSbWoWXOw7iW7AAEd4.
This option is out of the box for most everyone. Elections continue as though they matter, which they do, but not profoundly enough. In most countries it is a choice between horrible and hideous, which passes as democracy. Like so many things, it is clearly an illusion.
We (the activists of the world) can save the day and co-create a beautiful world of infinite possibilities for everyone if we can have our way. And our way is to connect all the millions of disparate groups, projects, and initiatives that are already working to restore the planet and move us to a new ethical and sane paradigm that is inclusive, through a network of networks with state of the art tools for collaboration and organizing. We, along with others are in the process of doing this and will need some time before it is fully ready. The challenge is daunting but clear and we, with all of our forces and passion go to meet it. utopiacornucopia.org
