I actually never ever thought we could kill a planet. Seriously, how could such an infantile species actually begin a process of planetary extinction? Simple numbers ……………….. 7.7 Billion.
The current world population is 7.7 billion as of December 2018 according to the most recent United Nations estimates elaborated by world meters
Like everything on the ascending trajectory of doom, human population is exploding. 8 Billion (2023) 10 Billion (2055) and up and up…………..
WTF will happen and WTF will need to be done in order for our children’s children to basically survive?
Future generations will be the first to actually suffer more from having and consuming more than past generations who consumed less and survived longer. This current generation are the first to actually succumb to actual death before their aging parents, that’s completely wrong on so many levels, leave alone nature.
How we got here is really not that important, seriously it’s not. It’s like climate change and the endless arguments. It’s here, it’s happening, it’s already screwing things completely up down and sideways. WTF we gonna do about it?
Every generation of anything has an instinctive need and burning desire to leave their offspring with a better quality of existence. Well, most individuals, couples, communities, colonies, communities, swarms, nations, etc. However corporations, predators, psychopathic narcissists and the like, don’t really give a thought about the bigger picture, their focus is on self-pleasure, control of others and elimination of whatever or whomever gets in the way.
When the love and desire of and for money gave rise to the grand God of all Gods, the extinction of our home planet (Earth) was sealed with a simple printer that made paper Gods of all of us. It’s a psychological marvel and a majestic magician’s performance that has entranced and ensnared us into actually believing that we need to consume vast and unsustainable quantities of everything.
Conditioning previous generations into believing that the only way to protect their offspring was to sign on to a programming option that encouraged them to encourage our young to eat it all up and then eat it all again and again was and continues to be the most insidious evil and destructive stroke of demented genius ever.
This really is as serious as it gets, however no one really seems to be bothered, tends to happen when toddlers are distracted with corn syrup and shiny trinkets that twinkle then die then renew and shine again. My generation, born 60 years ago, are the last generation to know life before the tech boom and after. We are straddling the ages, we created the conditions for what has exploded, we can’t stop it, no one can, no one will. We are wired for addiction.
On a recent visit to America I was at first bemused, shocked, then rapidly scared of what took up most airtime in adverts between programming. A whole nation of humans is bombarded by an endless loop of fixable offerings in the form of tablets, millions of humans consuming millions of pharmaceutical fixers for any and all ailments, raising billions of dollars for legal dealers. I wasn’t shocked by the knowledge or literature. I was terrified by the reality.
The reality that for billions more future customers supply will always outstrip demand. Horrified that our collective species is being conditioned to gorge, regurgitate, gorge repeat. That we are all being torn and shredded into individual strips of commodity based numerical loss and profit things.
Things that are not human any more, things that are unconsciously being overdosed on what is marketed as pleasure, bought as panacea, ending in death…………
Observing whats real is becoming increasingly difficult. This site is my view, my perception and my commentary on what I believe to be real, from my own unique position.
