For the first time, our civilization faces an environmental disaster of a planetary scale. Its components are as follows.
- Energy crisis associated with the exhaustion of natural resources, which form the basis of the current technocivilization.
- Climatic catastrophe caused by the pollution of the planet and the atmosphere by technical emissions.
- Biological catastrophe – diseases and extinction of many species of plants and animals as a result of human activity.
- Degradation of a person as a biological species under the influence of bad ecology, harmful products, stresses – life in an atmosphere of the market that corrupts people by introducing a false value into their consciousness – money.
Ecological catastrophe seems inevitable as a retribution to the human race for stupidity and greed, for accepting dubious values and unnatural power. Not only the financial mafia is guilty of the catastrophe, but also those who endured and are suffering from its domination. A quote from the book of the American Lyndon LaRouche “Physical Economics” (Scientific Book, Moscow 1997): “This crisis indicates that almost the entire human race failed; the current crisis is caused by the type of aggregate public opinion that has swept the whole world, all countries, all walks of society and almost reached every person.” And although we are talking about economic crisis, the statement is true in relation to the global systemic crisis in which humanity is dying – this is economic, political, environmental, moral, demographic and others crisis.
Is there a way to save life on Earth? There is. What is it? To wake up. Break away from your own problems and look around. Strain your brain, understand – that every person depends on everyone else. Do not rely on the leader, do not wait for the leader’s order. Hoping for yourself, for self-organization, for solidarity. Everyone should understand that there are no individual means of salvation – humanity will either survive jointly or die jointly.
There are no ready recipes and cannot be – humanity has never been in such situation. A solution must be sought by everyone who wants to live. Only collective mind of the mankind is able to stop the slide into the abyss.
Opposition organizations should revise their programs, often written only to meet human needs, in the traditional thinking framework, divorced from the capabilities of the ecosystem, as part of the consumer attitude to Nature. It is necessary to overcome the conservatism of the thinking of a selfish person who seeks comfort while ignoring the interests of the Earth. Those hoping for the development of new technologies should understand – today the mankind needs only one technology – the technology of change, the path of development – from technocivilization exploiting Nature, to society of harmony between man and the Earth, to co-evolution of man and Nature.
Understanding the need for such approach is maturing. Back in the 60s, the American ecologist B. Kommoner, in his work “The Closing Circle”, said that technology based on private property destroys the greatest wealth of mankind – ecosystems. Signed by 19 authors, the program work “Noosphere civilization is the era of hands together” declares: “The global pathology of the Earth, generated by the market-capitalist economy, has its own “response” to the global pathology of the mankind.” The authors are looking for a way to the “cooperation and social intelligence”, taking the ideology of V. Vernadsky on the biosphere as an ideological basis, and the prototype of the model described by I. Efremov in the novel “Bull Hour” is the Age of the Took Hands. In this new world there will be no place for parasitaries of all stripes, … exploitation of man by man, … greed, immorality, vice for the sake of profit, lies for the sake of profit … ” That is, we are talking about a society of social justice and solidarity, in which “a man … preserves all the diversity of life on Earth …”
International Planet Rescue Committee (PRC), which would take on the functions of a disabled, engaged UN, could solve the problem of saving humanity. PRC must collect the surviving, despite the pressure of the financial mafia, planet’s mind – a community of honest experts in various fields of human activity and politicians – supporters of a fair state system.
In countries that fell under the power of the financial mafia, which, unfortunately, includes Russia, it is necessary to collect bit by bit all the remaining intellectual and organizational potential in order to solve the task of saving humanity. This is our main task.
