excuse me while i take this expression out of context, for purposes of a rant. ;)
there are not enough natural resources for
what utter bollocks. look up. we have the resources. if only we'd stop denying ourselves it. if only we would stop manufacturing scarcity to maintain domination. we're held back. the manufactured scarcity is a product of capitalism. so your apparent reason to want capitalism to die (because there's not enough resources), is a fiction created by capitalism, for capitalism, that disapears with capitalism.
and not just the abundance up in space.
even all the earth-bound manufactured scarcities and squanderances to artificially accelerate consumer churn for short-term monetary profit gains.
oh there's enough resources alright.
capitalism's not gonna maintain those resources though. that would be an externality. no profit in externalities. tragedy of the commons compounded. resource sustainability squandered in a race to extract before the other extractor.
but to trickle in a little more of the context:
for the entire global population to live as those in #USA
the entire global population can live well, in material abundance.
like the usa does it though? no. usa's the poster-child of how to fuck it up worse. the example the rest of the world goes on to learn what not to do. the worse inefficient squanderer. hijacked the most by the profit maximisers and deceivers. exemplar of usurpers. global hegemony, imperial chauvinism, at great expense, duping the populace into believing they're doing the best in the world, while having public service replaced by profit/wealth extraction, right to the top.
and can the world learn from that lesson? partly. dragged along. usurpers of our own. mcarthian hangover overspill. dragged along with. the orwellian-named "neo-liberal" age, crooks in charge, spinning marketting lies to convince th~
lol, sorry, got carried away there. i'll stop my bombastic hyperbole short. ;D
o wait, no i wont... i'll start it up again upon reading this bs:
There must be population reductions, through #birthcontrol.
again. look up.
and if that's not enough for you, do the sums again. i recall when i did it, this planet, with proper resource management, can sustain over 300 Trillion humans. not that we'd want to. but suffice to say, we have the headroom... if we so manage our resources well.
we can save everybody, and not tell them how many children they can have. we dont need to do any of that draconian totalitarian eugenics veiled mass-murder.
Cooperative societies must be created where local food production is a major focus, quality #education and #science must pushed to the forefront,
yay. something that's not riddled with flies in the ointment. i can agree with that, ... pretty much. ( i mean, there's ambiguity around "cooperative societies" and "must", and "quality education" is open to abuse too, but barring nefarious underhandedness at play in the ambiguity, the sentiment's in the right place).
End global air travel and use the web for one on one communication.
enough of this backwards presumption that all technology is polluting and bad.
no need to hobble us so.
we can have our air travel, without the pollution.
all it takes is a little extra depth and bredth of insight applied to economics, and we're no long coercing ourselves under economic duress, and even legal restrictions/mandates to use the more polluting technologies. technologies that are not only inferior in that they pollute more, but inferior in a myriad of other ways, across multiple categories of ways, socially, ecologically, economically, technologically.
lets not deny ourselves the capacity to travel at speed through the air. lets expand it. let everyone have their own clean-tech flying car. let it be equipped with a 3d printer sufficient to make any of its own components, right to the level of being effectively able to print out another of itself. and open source designs, so any and all can help improve upon it. ... no more patent encumberances, no more secreting, all the best tech availed to all, in as safe and empowering a way as possible. so make them capable of space-flight too. child-safe, with navigation, voice controls, proximity management... all that sort of thing. you name the problem, there are solutions, that dont involve sticking our head in the sand, in denial of nether problem nor solutions.
Start production of #ThoriumLFTR Reactors for endless #energy and a means to dispose of the current #radioactive waste.
meh, yeah. i suppose. it's an improvement. not really necessary though. sorta still seems like a step backwards from the existing technology. granted, it's far better than the more poluting and weapon producing nuclear power stations. and cleaner than oil. and cleaner than coal. coal! wtf usa and china. wtf are you two doing still using coal that much... omg you guys are building more coal plants!? jesus fuck. yes! get thorium then, at speed! lol.
srsly tho... zero-point ... that is a HUUUUUGE deep ocean of energy we're sat on.
or if that still gets suppressed suppressed suppressed dozens of times more still, even just solar and wind is enough to power all our modern needs, if properly deployed... which we mmmmmmaddeningly dont. why have all our surfaces not been coated in carbon nanotubes and buckyballs since the moment that tech was discovered? every wall and window and roof and pavement and road and post and door and tech screen and case etc, could be generating a trickle of energy, even at shallow angle or ambient low light (at greater efficiency than "standard" photo-voltaics). well over a decade we could have mended the world's energy supply problem on the cheap. ...and emancipated the population, free'd them from energy rent extractions.
Make all transportation electric.
yup. n without the centralised spyware, like seems the typical encumbrance these days of corporate hegemons/monopolist/crypto-tyrants.
and not just devoid of spyware, but also bereft of energy rent dependence too. not just a solar panel on the roof, but all surfaces. and put an origami wind turbine on the roof that folds out when parked, and flat when driving.
but still, like thorium, such tech, may not be necessary, considering there's zero-point energy abundant without relying on availability of sun/wind. n_n
Make accumulation of personal wealth a #crime.
in the absolute like this, that may prove a greater hobbling than any of the other humanity-hobbling suggestions you made.
seems like a dangerous over-correction to the absolute.
application of such an absolute ruling would impair the natural dynamic material flows.
imbalanced excesses need curtailed of course. such are like malignant cancers.
but there still needs that flex and flow, such that some accumulations will occur, and need occur.
like, as with the endocannabinoid system (as i like to call it, the principle regulatory system of all other regulatory systems, in biological life from sea-squirts onwards through the more complex life like ourselves), the "dynamic homeostasis" is not a rigid absolute static equilibrium. no. there are flows. some needing more, some getting more, some needing less, some getting less, adapting to the natural fluctuations, adapting flows to meet a complexity needs.
ahhh. i needed a good rant. thnx for phrasing those with ambiguities and absolutes for me to get pedantic on. ;)
and fyi, tags in comments are only good for clicking on. wont show up in searches. ... yet. ~ idk if that'll be in future diaspora development and upgrades. n_n
there's more manufactured scarcity, than innate scarcity. by a factor of many orders of magnitude. mmmmmany.
dear humanity, get off your knees and fly
