The problems our species now faces are the result of elite sociopathic manipulators using media to exploit human cognitive glitches which enable them to control the fate of the whole. Any analysis of our plight which doesn't account for this is a flawed, power-serving analysis.
Humanity in and of itself is not the problem. The problem is that we sometimes produce humans who lack functioning empathy centers, who use the advantage this gives them over the rest of us in their relationship with mental narrative to manipulate us to get things they want.
What's required for a healthy world is not human extinction or a mass die-off, but a change in our collective relationship with mental narrative, where we use thought as a useful tool instead of the center of all our interest and attention. This change has always been possible.
People have been writing about the potential in humanity to awaken from the illusory nature of the mind and see reality clearly for thousands of years. What's different now is (A) our newfound ability to share information and (B) the fact that we are now at evolve-or-die time.
And we'll either make that jump or we won't. But we absolutely do have the ability and the freedom to transcend our unhealthy relationship with mental narrative which gives sociopaths the ability to manipulate us toward our collective doom.
