Ecology of Sanity – summary
We (meaning human beings) have become severely dysfunctional and we’re continuing on the path to self destruction. Egocentric optimism has precedence over intelligent solutions yet recovery is possible. We need to pursuit clarity without pessimism or optimism.
This can’t be done by tightly holding on to one ideology or another, rather through developing a philosophy of life. A way of life that sees love more important than ideology. A way of life that personal ego takes the back seat to the good of the community. A community which is not large, global and/or cyber but small, physical and local.
Why have we let governments and corporation get larger and larger therefore the 1% get richer? When did this trend begin? The answer is, when pseudo shamans emerged in natural evolution, killed the shamans and became the patriarchs of their tribes. Gradually great civilizations began to flourish then they fell one by one. It’s that simple.
The ecosystems that sanity can flourish in are small, physical and local communities that use consensus decision making process rather than the system of hierarchy and majority wins.
