Kamikaze Culture

From: Doug K.
Sent on: Tuesday, June 17, 2014 3:58 PM
A fundamental difference between the present and the past is that the ecological impact of the rich societies is so great, and their ability to manipulate the functioning of other societies so pervasive, that their destruction will take all of the other complex human societies with them. With the destruction and despoilment of the ecological basis for human societal existence so wide ranging, even many of the simpler societies may also perish. Thus, the richer societies can be seen as not only committing suicide, but murdering the less rich societies in the process. In previous times, individual civilizations would rise and fall, but humanity would continue its rise. No more.
