Most of us in the West recognise the criminal insanity of Putin's war against Ukraine & the lies he uses to justify it, but we shouldn't think ourselves immune to the same kind of madness, because we are not.
The Wests failure to instigate a #SustainabilityRevolution, the existential need for which has been apparent to many of us since the early 1970s, is also criminally insane. Only, we don't have a single Putin figure to blame. The blame is more collective, but focused on academia.
Why academia?

Because we look to academics as authorities in their supposed areas of expertise.

We expect social scientists to be authorities on understanding society, the state, & civilisation, but in truth they are as ignorant as medieval astronomers were of the heavens.

I welcome Eric's attempt to understand American society, although I can't really relate to it. It's no good leaving it to social scientists, who haven't a clue, despite it being their supposed area of academic expertise.
I too have put a lot of effort into trying to understand my own & closely related societies like America, i.e. the West, which are the only ones I know anything about.

My most important insight is that the academics we look to as authorities on understanding society don't.
That may seem trivial, but it's not, because we look to academics as authorities in their particular areas of supposed expertise, & for good reason.

We look to astronomers to explain the heavens to us, which they can now do extremely well.

Greta is my heroine: the child in the #HansChristianAndersen story of the Emperor's New Clothes, pointing out what those in positions of power & privilege are blind to, which in our case (& no fairytale) is that our civilisation is committing suicide.
Greta recognises our civilisation is committing suicide in failing to take #ClimateChange seriously enough, but I don't think she yet understands the underlying cause, as I do, being a lot older than her.

But hopefully she soon will, & help initiate a #SustainabilityRevolution.

I've known that Western civilisation is committing suicide ever since realising that instead of facing up to the existential need for a #SustainabilityRevolution, it was sticking with a mercenary, rapacious, DRIVEN & thus inherently unsustainable global economy.
We were warned in the 1970's & opted definitively for #CivilisationalSuicide when the economy was put into super-global & turbo mode in the 1980s.

There was nothing I could do, but look on in horror, & try to understand this madness, which I now do. But no one's interested.
How can anyone - esp. if they have young children or grandchildren - not be interested in the civilisation their future depends on committing suicide?

Simon & Garfunkel had the answer in their song, The Boxer:

🎶A man hears what he wants
to hear & disregards the rest🎶

I remember, in the 1970s, when all were in awe of the photos of #SpaceshipEarth brought home by the Apollo astronauts, making clear its vulnerability, which our leaders, I was sure, would heed by initiating a #SustainabilityRevolution. Only, they never did.
It was the same with immigration. I saw the London suburb of Wembley, where I was born in 1949, when it was 100% White, becoming ever more DIVERSE, & thought to myself, this is madness, which government will surely not allow to continue. Wembley is now about 12% White.
Quite recently I learned that the historian, A J Toynbee had remarked that all successful civilisations (like ancient Greece & Rome) ultimately commit suicide, which is clearly what Britain & the West are now doing.

"The globalization we have known since the 1980s, in which advanced economies create physical products to be manufactured where wages are lower, has passed its peak".…
We were warned in the early 1970s that our growth-dependent, grossly materialistic, mercenary, rapacious & driven global economy was inherently unsustainable on our finite, vulnerable & (even back then) overpopulated planet, #SpaceshipEarth.
A young & inexperienced man at the time, I expected our leaders & their academic advisors to rise to the challenge of instigating a #SustainabilityRevolution, but instead, as referred to in the quote I began this thread with, they put this economy into super-global & turbo mode.

I like George & agree with most of his political views, EXCEPT those on RACE, which he denies the importance, if not the very existence of. He despises his own race, not caring that Native Britons will soon be a racial minority in their ancestral homeland.

How can this be?
I like George, who wants a just & humane society, understands the existential need for a #SustainabilityRevolution, & has good intentions.

But you know what they say about good intentions paving the way to hell, which is exactly what George's good intentions are doing.
Despite having studied biology (I believe), he fails to view his own species from an evolutionary perspective, which is what one has to do, if one wants to understand society & its ills.

Instead, he embraced social science ideology, which makes a taboo of doing just this.

The British state, establishment & Parliament have committed themselves to an ideology of White/Native racial self-denial, self-contempt & self-hatred, as an instrument of socio-political rewards, intimidation & control.

Who will join me in opposing this madness?
It sometimes makes me very angry, as I know it also makes many others, but if we give expression to our anger, we are accused of being xenophobic or RACIST, although my anger I do not direct at PoC, but at my fellow Whites who are imposing this madness on their OWN race.
But I do not allow this anger to consume me, 1) because it would do no good, & 2) because those responsible do not recognise the evil they are doing. Quite the contrary, they believe that they are doing good by opposing prejudice, which is how this ideology works.

Government is accused of being "painfully slow" on protecting the environment, which reveals the lack of a deeper understanding of our failure to implement a #SustainabilityRevolution.
@ClarenceHouse #Prince_of_Wales #GretaThunberg #ExtinctionRebellion
But let's not put all the blame on governments, which have to get elected. No political party wanting to initiate a Sustainability Revolution could have won a single seat, let alone an election.

And then there's academia, which prioritised DIVERSITY over SUSTAINABILITY.
Society's failure to initiate a Sustainability Revolution 40 years ago was like someone ignoring their doctor's advice to cut back on their alcohol consumption, but increasing it instead. Our unsustainable economy was put into super-global & turbo mode, where it remains.

I think #DavidAttenborough, on behalf of his whole generation, owes #GretaThunberg & her generation an abject apology for having failed to instigate a #SustainabilityRevolution, the existential need for which has been apparent to many of us since the early 1970s.
I apologise for my own boomer generation, but it would be better coming from more influential individuals like #BillClinton, #BillGates & #TonyBlair. Only, they don't recognise the failure, or their co-responsibility for it, since that would tarnish their self-image.
These men & thousands like them, & a smaller number of women, who profited greatly from our unsustainable global economy, will almost certainly die in denial of their failings, as many, like #MargretThatcher & #HelmutSchmidt have already done.

Present-day Western civilisation is dominated by an international priestly elite of moral supremacists, just as it was in medieval times.

The religion on which they base their moral authority is that of Post-Racial #Multiculturalism, DIVERSITY, Inclusion & #AntiRacism.
It's not just the WOKE, with their #IbramKendi & #RobinDiAngelo style Anti-Racism, but mainstream academic authority itself, which is responsible for the madness of mass immigration & DIVERSITY being imposed on the West.

And madness it is!
As Jesus opposed the misguided moral authority & supremacism of HIS priesthood, I oppose the misguided moral authority & supremacism of mine.

Notwithstanding my lack of His divine qualifications & ability to perform miracles.

I'm just a Native European, a modern-day #WatTyler.

America was founded on #WhiteIdentity & Nationalism, the founding fathers being the original #WhiteNationalists, who restricted American citizenship to Whites, i.e. to fellow Europeans. So WHY is #WhiteNationalism now demonised?!
It is because America, like the UK, is an Orwellian construct, based on lies, deceit & a regime of rewards & intimidation.

The founders knew it would be difficult enough forging a nation from different European peoples of the same race, without trying to include other races.
And so it has proven. America never did became a genuine nation, as its founders had hoped it would, but just a bigger, more powerful, mercenary patron state, deceitfully posing as a nation, like Great Britain, from which it had won its independence.

This is a quote from #DavidAaronovitch, in which he ridicules the notion of "kith & kin".

It is testimony to his contempt for kinship & race, which also reflects that of the British state & establishment & goes to very heart of that is wrong with western civilisation. Image
Actually, it is not just what is wrong with our civilisation. It is what has caused every civilisation before our own to decline & fall, as ours will also do, very soon, unless we correct it. It represents a flaw in nature of the state itself. Image
KING has the same origin as KIN, & kings were originally expected to rule in the interests of their kin, i.e. society at large. But this was before the emergence of the state, which is dedicated to facilitating society's self-exploitation.

George Orwell based his novel, 1984, on 1930s fascism & communism, projecting them onto a future Britain & unwittingly making it difficult for us to recognise how #BigBrother would manifest himself in liberal democracies like our own.
Manifest himself he does, but not as in 1984. Instead, we are left many freedoms, while at the same time being enslaved - rich & poor alike - to BigB & #TheMatrix of state & capital. As in the film, most are completely unaware of it, & the well-served have no reason to become so.
But enslaved we are, to a system that is inherently unjust, inhumane, & unsustainable on our finite, vulnerable & overpopulated planet, #SpaceshipEarth.

Thus enslaved, our leaders have been unable to initiate the #SustainabilityRevolution on which our very survival depends.

Americans are not free.

No one is. We are ALL - rich & poor, high & low IQ alike, & whatever your race - enslaved to Big Brother & the Matrix of state & capital.

The rich & rich enough feel free, because they can buy whatever they need or want, but they are not truly free.
The freedom of the wealthy is costing the Earth, because produced by a growth-dependent, grossly materialistic, mercenary, rapacious & driven global economy that is inherently unsustainable on our finite, vulnerable & overpopulated planet, #SpaceshipEarth. Image
I remember us being warned about this back in the early 1970s, esp. in E. F. Schumacher's book, Small is Beautiful.

I was a young man at the time & assumed that our leaders would face up to this existential threat to our survival & initiate a #SustainabilityRevolution.

#PrinceCharles, the #PrinceOfWales, is a classic example of someone who is massively privileged by #BigBrother & #TheMatrix of state & capital, while at the same time being enslaved to them. Notwithstanding that we are ALL enslaved in much the same manner.
I wouldn't want to change places with him, nor he with me, because be has been taught to accept his enslavement as a duty to his nation.

Only, Britain is no nation, but a mercenary #PatronState, deceitfully posing as a nation, in order to trick us into loving Big Brother.
If Prince Charles were to recognise this, we could work together in liberating ourselves, our people, & all humanity, & instigating a #SustainabilityRevolution while we are about it.

It would be insane to put the demands of the ECONOMY, before those of society at large & the health of our planet, but this is what we DO.

It's madness & needs to be understood, if we are to put an end to it & face up to the existential need for a #SustainabilityRevolution
Golden eggs are an analogy for MONEY, which is the most versatile form of POWER, which has been corrupting evolved human nature & society ever since it was first invented.

We are ALL enslaved - rich & poor, high & low IQ alike - to #BigBrother & #TheMatrix of state & capital.

My quest to understand why #NationStates, like Britain, instead of facing up to the existential need for a #SustainabilityRevolution in the 1970s & 80s, opted instead for ecocide, civilisational suicide & #WhiteSelfGenocide, led me to the following insights: Image
The trauma Ashkenazi Jews suffered at the hands of the Nazis resulted in many (subconsciously, if not consciously) hating, not just Nazis, but the entire European, i.e. White, race. Notwithstanding that, contrary to Nazi racial ideology, they themselves belong to the same race.
Given the nature of the state, this racial self-hatred was weaponised by #BigBrother & his minions as an instrument of socio-political rewards (for denying & despising one's own race), intimidation & control. Image

On course for ending White majority rule in the UK by 2066?!
It is quite bizarre that successive British governments have pursued, & are continuing to pursue, policies that will reduce Native Britons to a racial minority in their ancestral homeland.

It is an act of #NationalSuicide.
And is surely connected with the refusal of successive British governments to address the existential need for a #SustainabilityRevolution on our finite, vulnerable & overpopulated planet, #SpaceshipEarth. Image

"Windrush Day was introduced in June 2018 on the 70th anniversary of the Windrush migration."…

It is also the day which marks the beginning of the end of white majority rule in the UK.
"The first Afro-Caribbean immigrants in the United Kingdom were faced with extreme intolerance from the majority of the white population."

Human nature being what it is, i.e. very tribal, this is what one would expect; so why did the British establishment demonise & suppress it?
It did so as a means of socio-political intimidation & control, which tells us a great deal about the nature of the British state; only no one, it seems, wants to hear it. Image

The existing world order is inherently unjust, inhumane & unsustainable, but everyone who is anyone in society, with any wealth, power or influence has a massive personal self-interest in preserving the status quo . .
. . . pretty much as it is. In fact, in a democracy like the UK, we ALL do, because the system is based patronage, with the government of our mercenary "patron state" striving to satisfy the demands of its countless clients, individual & corporate, & very unequal.
Consumer capitalism is premised on the misconceived idea that if everyone pursues their own self-interests this will ultimately serve the interest of society at large. It's a rationalisation of the status quo by society's wealthy & academic elites whom it serves very well.
