@aral that is one part of business I never understood. The need for ever increasing growth (including for the bonuses of execs). As if having a healthy steady flow of money is something horrific? But I am very interested in seeing how this will turn out. Here’s for equality!
@aral Capitalism requires consumption, & is driven by ever-increasing consumption. Capitalism is consuming & destroying the Earth life support system.
Having adequately informed myself of present reality, from various & reliable sources, it is perfectly clear that this is so. From a purely conceptual perspective on the fundamental essence of capitalism (& present humankind), it is perfectly clear that this *would* be so.
And by the way, the death of humankind is *much* closer than almost everyone realizes. Have a nice day ☺
