This piece correctly points out that global warming is a result of humanity’s deliberate blindness to the fact that exponential growth is impossible. Climate change must be reversed or homo sapiens will become extinct. The ruling class is the cause, and will surely bring about this catastrophe unless they are deposed, and their power is so great that it is difficult to conceive of any way for the 99% to force a soft landing. 

However, there is a possibility that the collapse will be caused by civil events before a violent end. If that happens there will be a short-lived opportunity to implement a new monetary system that will not evolve into the nightmare we now live in.

This article seems important to me because the problem is caused by a fatal flaw in the nature of homo sapiens. Our brains do not keep us safe from behavior that dooms us to extinction along with most other living beings. We collectively deliberately ignore obvious evidence of our mortal danger.

This is the same flaw that has resulted in exponential population growth, eternal unending war, and the triumph of greed over common sense and benevolence.

I agree with you about the importance of this article. Richard Moser is a brilliant writer and political analyst who I know as a social media friend. He has given us a serious blueprint here to take the necessary steps in our struggle to replace this death cult of a system.

Thanks for posting.
