there is a term called “structural violence”.
it’s a sophisticated setup of systems and methods that are not obvious on the first sight – hence injustice can be done everyday – but nobody realizes it as injustice.
It’s what i would call structural tyranny.
Fun fact: people actually “feel” that the modi operandi of mankind for survival is highly unsustainable.
Homo sapiens is depressed and women refuse to get children in such an insecure world.
Thus the dying-out process is already going on in the developed countries, while the underdeveloped countries make babies just out of trauma and frustration (they are so poor, they don’t know if they will survive another week so they have unprotected sex at any possibility and reckless irresponsible impossibility).
My Millennial generation inherits a pile of nuclear waste – called the Earth – and all my generation can do is dampen the fall to hell.
Previous generations say – they did not know they set course to hell – because back in the 1970s there was no internet – so how should they have known?
Well fun fact – there have been forward thinking people in the 1970s like the New Alchemists – but instead of distributing their scientific results – “the system” (namely the mainstream media and politics) chose to label them “nuts” and “hippies” and ignore them – and they still do – so you tell me ignorance is bliss? Maybe yes – until you reach hell.
If you have seen a TV feature on “The New Alchemists” – ever – i send you $100.
Now we have a show called TEDx – stories worth being told – The New Alchemists – that would have been such a story.
Maybe we should stop wining and do something.
Despite having invented numerous layers of “abstraction” (money being the most prominent) Humans are part of nature.
As the life of millions of native Southamericans – that used to life in the Amazonas jungle show:
They increased thickness of the fertile soil layer significantly – from 5cm to 100cm – just by ecological living near by – until the Spanish colonists arrived and killed them all. Poor bastards.
The presence of humans with proper lifestyles is actually beneficial to plants and biodiversity.
Yes we can not save the world – but we can slow down the fall to hell – we can try – step by step – day by day.
