Hmm Do You Think Mate That Its Possible

to generate and live within alternative social models? Do you think that there’s an appetite for it? Do you think it’s possible for people to transition from a society such as the one we’re describing into any kind of alternative model or do you think the g-force whiplash wrench of coming away from the UK of the electro-magnetic teat of this consumerist system might buckle us up and render us disabled for any potential alternative future very good question because we live at that hinge point right now Also there are some good words in it moments and fantastic words in there rustle. Though it Didn’t even make sense? But we do we live we live it? We live it one of those one of those turning points where people need to need to decide what to do because yes the the power of society that power of culture, power of government with our money is a is a crushing force and it does and it does operate a kind of a kind of brainwashing system through the media through through the education system, which is which is about making people passive keeping society calm keeping the wheels of the economy turning over, but it’s not about the realization of the of the of the individual. I think it is possible to change this. I think people are doing it for themselves without anybody telling them what to do again. Maybe this is happening more in America than it’s happening elsewhere You and I first.

Met On A Ranch In In

Utah and down. There they have an amazing program of permaculture going on sustainable agriculture getting rid of all the pesticides learning from the Beavers, Can you imagine that the the Beavers are teaching them how to manage water manage water management on the land they’re they’re integrated with nature in a good way. So people can do this but it’s got to be come from from individual initiatives. It’s not ever something that could come from the center because if it comes from the center, it’s just repeating the same mistakes that we’ve made that we’ve made all along position I take is the model we have now is broken. The most important thing to do is to criticize it clearly and show up its faults and errors and to show them up in an inner in a way that doesn’t collect it.

Doesnt Push Peoples Buttons Because The

system has inserted by in people that get the get pushed so it’s very difficult to argue against nationalism these days. For example, if you argue against nationalism, it immediately pushes a button that people get very upset and very and very angry because it seems it would taken to be an automatic good thing to take pride in one’s nation and to be a patriot I personally Don’t think it’s a good thing but I can’t tell you the amount of the amount of unpleasantness. I’ve received for saying it’s not a good thing and that’s the moment where I need to say when I don’t like nationalism and I don’t like patriotism. I’m gonna say this to those who are going to attack me for saying this it does not mean that I want a world government I do not want a. World government? I want less government not more government, but we have to understand we’re all one family.

Were All Brothers And Sisters.

It’s absurd that we should be more loyal to people who by accident were born on the same piece of land as us It’s absurd. It’s a mistake. We need to grow out of it it’s wonderful the complex and adept how our innate tendencies to connect with say. For example, tribalism has been transposed onto a nationalistic model.

I Suppose I Was Thinking About It There

and I think a lot about it if no nationalism because of what’s happening politically at the moment and I feel like I really admire people that are willing to stand up for what they believe in and get on the streets in almost in any capacity and I can see that if you know in the century ago and four centuries preceding that we were bombarded with the idea that this is a nation. This is a real thing. Your grandparents are going to die for this and like there’s been so much blood spilled in telling us that this is real and I suppose in talk about blood spilled and nationalism. I don’t know if you came across the poet Wilfred Owen. He was a great war war poet of the First World War.

They Forced Us To Read Him.

and he was a highlight a line. He died on the last day of the First World War. He was killed in the trenches.

Oh, Beautiful Beautiful Poet And And

and he wrote a poem Seeing a young man dying in the trenches from poison gas and the last lines of that poem were just the old lie Dolce at the core amassed pro patria Mori it is sweet and honorable to die for one’s country Wilfredo and saw that as the old lie that we have been told again and again and again and again and again what what’s getting confused is our natural commitment to to community community is not nation community is a different thing. Culture is not nation. We can glorify and respect and value cultures without diminishing other cultures. We can say that this is great in this culture.

I Value It But It Doesnt.

Mean that that culture is less the problem with nationalism is it’s all about saying our nation is best and other nations are less good and if other nations threaten us, we will kill them and destroy them. Who are we look at Britain today divided a ballute Lee down the middle is there one nation in Britain. No I don’t think so I think there’s multiple nations in Britain which boil down to multiple communities is only meaningful at the sense of community is America one nation no it’s not it’s divided by a huge schism down the middle so in what sense is it even useful to speak about nations today well.

I Suppose My Sense Is Is

that the people who benefit from sovereignty and national systems no longer have any legitimate and genuine belief in those principles, but it’s a convenient way to corral people in Thuringia presses the presses those buttons. It presses those those those those those buttons which I suspect go back to tribalism and the deep origins of the of the human race and they’re and they’re still in us, but if we’re going to move forward as a species, it’s a cliche, but we really do have to realize that we are all one family and that a child suffering in Mexico is really no different from a child so for New Krypton thanks for watching this podcast and going all the way to the end of it was use it kind of to kick the Belmont up a little over there and there subscribing. So that we can infiltrate your serenity and peace of mind with jangling bells and parties.

Summary

Do you think it’s possible for people to transition from a society such as the one we’re describing into any kind of alternative model? Or do you think the g-force whiplash wrench of coming away from the UK of the electro-magnetic teat of this consumerist system might buckle us up and render us disabled for any potential alternative social models? We live at that hinge point right now. We live it one of those turning points where people need to need to decide what to do because the power of society that power of culture, power of government with our money is a is a crushing force and it does operate a kind of a brainwashing system through the media through through the education system, which is about making people passive keeping society calm keeping the wheels of the economy turning over, but it’s not about the realization of the of the individual .
