The impending global collapse...we can do better

Money is make believe..it is all based on credit, credibility, credence...the latin root means belief. It doesn't matter if it is YHWH, Jesus, Mohammed, gold, silver, rock, paper, scissors.

Build for humans, not for automobiles...there are limits to the geometric growth model...the current system is predicated on exploitation and extraction and ever increasing populations. Meanwhile the world's fisheries are collapsing, people are starving and we're ever more reliant on foolish monocultured agriculture and genetically mutilated organisms...and there is divisiveness everywhere. We are not 'consumers'...that is what is inculcated through all our media. Tune out. Evolve.
