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.

Numbers (1)

We are betting our entire future.
Pensionan oil funds,
on bargain hunts for capital growth

The numbers tell us,
we haven’t yet encountered
any energetic limits.

The market democracy
does not make (formal) plans,
for a liquid fuel supply deficit

And so it fails,
to plan for the future.
And so it fails.

Blah again

Let us argue with fact since my truth cannot be yours

First world society is absolutely dependent on a limited supply of liquid fuel

just in time is the very definition of unsustainable once it reaches a Liebig limit

your facts assume this doesn’t matter
