Morals

Humans invented anthropogenic moralism in order to establish a framework for interacting with each other and with the rest of the planet. This is why we have a moral diversity, because nature is diverse and humans are products of this.

Moralism has however, become largely anthropomorphic and in my opinion this is the greatest moral challenge of our time. We place our highest values on consumption of the natural world without empathising with the implications of this consumption for other forms of life.

If moral absolutism exists, and I think it should, it would be focussed on establishing a true value system that incorporates the impact the entirety of a product’s production chain has on life, rather than simply focussing on the human desire for the final product.

We have been given every indication that our consumption based model is morally absurd as it destroys life, and the ability of the planet to maintain life.

And yet we are increasingly devoted to it as our morals are corrupted to embrace the values of; Lust, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Pride, Envy and Gluttony.

A fractional reserve

Money is debt,
created by government bonds,
and/or fractional reserve banking,
essentially the same thing.

since decoupling from the gold
Standard money is fiat
the value ascribed an indication
of the confidence of the market
in the medium of exchange

To goal being to siphon a proportion.
Due the ‘inventor’ of the investment opportunity.
Converting a substantial proportion of manufactured debt,
into personal worth.
Is to goal, for every good capitalist.

Even better, if you can.
Leverage the feel good factor,
associated with sustainability.
Seeming to mean,
use everything today before it runs out,
because of the collective investment in debt.

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

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.
