If you think, solar is just a fancy thing for rich people, in rich countries, it might come as a surprise that China (!!!) has the biggest installed solar capacity by country 200GW of solar.

India has invested heavily in solar and Japan has overtaken Germany with it’s currently 50GW of solar capacity.

Solar is not minor.

Solar is many many Gigawatts of power.

in the catastrophe of Corona, there is the chance of new treatments via mRNA of such mankind wide plagues as cancer.

imagine a vaccine against cancer, that is exactly what companies that also worked on mRNA vaccines are working on.

in the catastrophe of the Russia on Ukraine war, is the chance of EU but also (!!!) US to FINALLY get rid of dependencies of nations from climate destroying fossil fuels.

why does your home not look like this? (will cut  your energy bill in half)

why does your car not look like this? (already?)

all Texas US truck drives have two choices: stop laughing about the Toyota Prius and either power their trucks with hydrogen, or finally agree that smaller, lighter, more fuel efficient cars are the way into the future.

Unless Texas does not want to have a future.

The politics of the West needs create a financial system (banks) that actually works towards this goal by giving 0.1% loans over 30 years on solar and EV vehicles and infrastructure.

Anything else is unaffordably anymore.

Unfortunately: “investors” aka “banks that more or less print money” make crisis (often) even worse, by speculating on increasing oil, wheat and real estate prices and thus drive prices even higher. for short term profits.

The Ukraine war is a energy war – and the West needs to renewably win it fast.

Democracies now have to partner with private companies and proof, they can not only talk but act and answer the problems of this new reality.

what does this chart tell you?

GDP simply means: “money changed hands” (for whatever reason (“fake” GDP activity would be bank/companyA selling houseX to bank/companyB selling houseX to bank/companyA and so on))

while this book says, only “catastrophe” can reset inequality in society…

… peaceful ways are also possible.

there is hope… because: peaceful leveling is POSSIBLE!

democracy vs money?

and this Chase Bank advertisement surely shows what the problems are (the almost complete LOSS of CONTROL of the DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED POLITICIANS over the (largely mafia fraudulent) FINANCE and TAX AVOIDANCE sector aka the finance sector aka THE BANKS (including the reckless cash money printing central banks then effectively blackmailing the gov whenever this goes wrong (2008 subprime-(bank)-financial crisis)).

while those memes are funny…

Putin Macron Bernie Sanders MEMEit is important to listen to both sides, because one sided views WILL be bad informed (here the general media do a very very poor job).

same author:

Scheidel: “how to fix democracy”

  • nationalism will make things worse
    • Hitler did some “good” at the beginning (creating jobs with government money (building highways) and making farmers get better fair pay, before going “full mad man believing to be god” killing millions, destroying jobs & wealth & genocide
  • of course: the rich are very afraid of reforms (tax and gov taking away banks, companies and real estate for compensation) & revolutions (taking away of banks, companies and real estate without compensation , which can be very turbulent violent (French revolution)).
  • “fun” fact: the Russian Zar (ex King of Russia) actually wanted to reform Russia like UK, but the revolution was “faster” and reforms could not be implemented fast enough (Zar basically like the Queen of UK down from power but keeping some privileges)

THE RICH SHOULD ALSO BE AFRAID AND AVOID WAR AT ALL COSTS BECAUSE WHAT COMES AFTER WILL GREATLY reduce their wealth!
