  1. JamesWatts says:

    When the destruction of all fossil fuel reserves has become the primary goal of the Western Civilisation since James Watts – biodiversity became secondary – all along”

    The Western Civilisation is bankrupt by physics – as its primary goal, we now understand, was no more than the destruction of finite, gold-grade, one-off fossil fuels reserves as quickly as possible, even if burned in the air to waste – and that what’s going-on since early coal in Britain – all along.

    The Western Civilisation’s perception-controlling engine is primarily run to prevent humans from realising this is what happening – at core – a relentless effort put into guaranteeing a quicker return for all humans to physical slavery, viciously exercised, like never seen before.

    This sort of extreme and puzzling behaviour of social-Darwinism will be stopped at for a very long time by humans in next Civilisations;

    This sick behaviour never seen even in the rest of the animal kingdom, not even in the kingdom of insects.

    Why on Earth the Western Civilisation has done this unforgivable act, destroying millions of years in the-making, one-off finite fossil fuels – madly, like this?!

    Science has been paralysed and faked in the process, Economics is kept an Open dodgy System – while people are mislead to talk Debt 24/7, unaware the system is actually – Open!

    Can we all try again and wake up the Western Cilivisation and its social engineer – telling them – what, for god sake, they are doing?

    Can Science under the Western Cvilisation make its last ditch-effort and acknowledge the real non-flying-carpet EROEI and Laws of Physics – before the Western Civilisation goes out in history, owing to Physics?

    • Robert Martin says:

      The destruction of the natural world is not the result of global capitalism, industrialisation, “Western civilisation” or any flaw in human institutions. It is a consequence of the evolutionary success of an exceptionally rapacious primate. Throughout all of history and prehistory, human advance has coincided with ecological devastation. — John Gray, STRAW DOGS

      All civilisation does the same to different degrees. Western was just simply the most powerful at exploiting, something any other would do in a similar position. Higher genius per capita in England and availability of fossil fuels was just the perfect breeding ground for the industrial revolution to take place.

      Social darwinism would actually be beneficial, raising congenital traits for being conscientious, altruistic, even genius (Edward Dutton, At Our Wits End). Average intelligence, character and health has been declining for at least a century (Richard Lynn, Dysgenics: Genetic Deterioration in Modern Population s). Evolutionary novel behaviour such as practicing conservation, taking contraception, liberalism, atheism (anything that does not directly benefit survival of genes) is also argued by Satoshi Kanazawa to be a product of high intelligence, perhaps why some populations fail miserably to self-limit their growth and then spill over to over consuming countries as Alice has pointed out in her Why Did Everyone Stop Talking About Immigration?

      So it can be argued science is powerless against the declining quality of people, that’s why you observe all this dysfunction unchallenged, that’s why we’re locked into this failed strategy. Civilisation, without illiberal mitigations, relaxes natural selection and irreversibly locks itself into a one way track to collapse by dysgenics and ecological overshoot.
