Value II

The valuation of goods is based on rarity, as perceived through an anthropomorphic veil.

True value, can only be represented as the energetic costs of their production.

The work required to extract and consume minerals is worthless unless repeatable. I will make reference to a greater wisdom than mine:

Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money

We are caught in a logical fallacy, a religious belief that the means of production represent value, when in fact they largely represent destruction of real value, in the consumption of life itself.

Poem’ish?

We know naught,
we weren’t taught,
and we truly know
aught

The very dominant paradigm teaches
there is nothing we oughtn’t.
If first proven profitable.
For profit enhances the profit,
even of those it kills,
Extremes trickle down

Ex culpas (not our fault),
we declare.
Domini parenti excelsis,
(honour that which you are taught)
when there is naught else to know.

Ceteris paribus,
(ignore that which doesn’t fit your hypothesis),
allows propaganda to invent fact.
Do we then dedicate the future,
our future,
to the ideal of progress,
In the pursuit of n’erending profit?

Unlearned we declare,
The unbiased goal…
ecologically sustainable development
whenever proven profitable.
