Trailblazing or death
In the last post the metaphor of new paths reminds me of this post on Bryant's idea about the gravitational vectors or paths of suobjects. In that post I discussed Rifkin's agenda being implemented with the EU as doing exactly that. But he is succeeding only to the degree that he gets governmental leaders to implement social policy which provide such paths to a different energy infrastructure. And that means walking the path of civic activism to move governments to enact such policy. The more people get active the more gravity is generated, the more such paths are trod, the more progress is made. And we are making progress by so trail blazing, as per this post and following. The capitalist meme is literally the end of the world as we know it via drastic climate change, if not in our lifetimes then in that of our children. No hyperbole, no bullshit. That is what is at stake and we can no longer ignore or deny it.
