Yup, it's the current dogma. Infinite growth. I would argue that if
you want to cut CO2 emissions, this would be a good place to start.
Yes, I have been saying that for a while, too. The trouble is, as people tend to point
out, how do you achieve it? Americans in particular are terrified that it will lead to
Socialism, whatever that would mean in practice (What they're actually sacred of of
course is Totalitarianism, not realising they already have it in all but name, though
controlled by corporations and suchlike rather than the government).
Any ideas how to achieve a sustainable economy?
The first step has to be to stop population growth. That's pretty much happened in all
the OECD nations, except the U.S. and it would be the case there too except for
immigration from the south. How to stop population growth: *educate women* so they can
lead meaningful lives aside from bearing children and provide readily available birth
control; and get rid of Catholicism, Mormonism, and any other religion preaches against
"The raging monster upon the land is population growth. In its presence, sustainability is
but a fragile theoretical construct. To say, as many do, that the difficulties of nations
are not due to people but to poor ideology and land-use management is sophistic."
