Why protesting hasn't and isn't going to Work
In Britain as in Europe, the protests against austerity have failed. We have to try another way.
What’s happening in our world today has never happened before in the history of the human race. It's not the end of the world but it is the beginning of a new epoch. Our problems are much bigger than the rich, Wall Street, the banks and big business. For most of us this is beyond our comprehension. We've never had anything like this ever:
"Sky rocketing debt, unemployment, underemployment, deficits, government failure, Economic systems failure, Financial systems failure, Market systems failure, Monetary systems failure, Social systems failure, Environmental systems failure, Ecosystems failure, corruption, greed, chronic recessions etc…"
Protesting is not a solution to these problems. And protesting against things and people that can’t fix our problems is insane. It’s a complete waste of time. This is nothing like the civil rights movement in America or apartheid in south Africa or even the Indian independence movement led by Gandhi.
The convergence of all these problems all at once is not a coincidence or a perfect storm. Scientists have been warning us for decades. Our governments around the world are not capable of fixing this mess no matter what they say. They are lying. The only people that can help us now are scientists and engineers. They've been warning us for decades. We don't listen until it's too late or almost too late. These problems are much too complex to be solved by simple measures. Protesting and other forms of civil disobedience won't even scratch the surface. At best, they will accelerate our decline and eventual collapse.
The scientists and engineers can only help us if we meet them half way. Don't wait until it's too late. Our future and the future of children depend on it. I know it sounds extreme and unorthodox but so is this crisis.
