Re-read an old philosophy class book that says our countries are too interconnected that if one nation tries to act responsibly, the consequences would be too much. So we’re stuck in a huge cycle of status quo.
I’m sure some anti-globalists will be commenting with a “told ya”. But isolation doesn’t seem to be the answer. Neither is electing a pseudo billionaire, former reality tv host.
Fear Appeal is needed for the public to move. Like say climate change. Humans need fire to run from or a carrot to run too. And I guess this is where religion comes in.
We literally created heaven and hell to transcend Human Apathy. But it didn't work because now we’re expecting our divine creator to fix all our problems. “Kill ‘em all and let god sort it out.” Said in a number of wars, I expect.
So not sure where to go from here. We’re stuck in the rut of Organized Irresponsibility and our religions, corporations and each of our own selfish desires will keep it that way.
