incomplete definition, but at least three reasons for starters:
mankind (aka humans) are a part of nature
some religions made mankind believe for centuries, that humans, are “above” nature and thus not a part of nature, resulting in beyond-reasonable exploitation of the environment and little care for other species
but without the bacteria and fungi in the soil breaking down organic matter, the every land will become a desert mankind will starve
the monetary system(s) is “selling the future for short term profits”
the monetary system(s) are abstracting humans away from cooperation with nature (the consumer is consuming handing money to the farmer that is producing, the consumer never meets the farmer, the plant, the field where his/her food comes from and does not care (?) where it comes from (increasingly people care where their food is coming from and how it is produced (fair, organic? or exploitative and cancer causing ?)
mankind (aka humans) feel “disconnected” and become selfish and arrogant (greed) unaware that this disconnection means death in the long term
inequality: “poor Americans are much more likely to face mental health problems than rich ones”
more and more violence on TV: why, actually?
did you know that in France TV is “illegal” for children under 3, it used to be illegal for children as well in Germany, but SOMEHOW and SOMEONE thinks it’s “good” to have children watch traumatic brutal violence on TV? (WHO IS THIS PSYCHOPATH? PROBABLY BIG PHARMA!?)
because that is what this will do: make humans blunting humans on compassion, one of the MOST important features (says the Dalailama) if one want’s to be happy
“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.” (Dalai Lama XIV, The Art of Happiness)
“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” (Dalai Lama XIV, The Art of Happines)
“Television viewing hurts the development of children under 3 years old and poses a certain number of risks, encouraging passivity, slow language acquisition, over-excitedness, troubles with sleep and concentration as well as dependence on screens.” (source: 2008 ecochildsplay.com)
imho, WHY is there so much violence on TV? so BIG PHARMA CREATES SICKNESS IN PEOPLE AND CAN SELL MORE PILLS?
so what needs to be done?
reconnect with nature, hand grow as much food as you can, where you can, and if it’s only a balcony with a little reddish and broccoli
instead of buying new (bad quality), try to make it yourself or try to fix old things
what is your vision of a positive (hopefully for everyone) future?
FIX THE GOD DAMN INEQUALITY!
