6. Planetary awareness is mandatory for forward movement, the internets should connect all people,.

 

and even the biosphere and many systems of the planet as well. We need to know what is happening halfway around the world, as it is important to us too, since this is one world and we are all connected.

The sustainable solutions already exist, we only need to stop the greedy from controlling the resources as they now do. The 1% run the show currently, and the people allow themselves to be deceived, divided, and controlled by the few.

A wave of mass extinction is underway, and we are causing it. If we do not modify our behavior, inevitably we will topple the balance and undermine our own existence. Human dieback is the outcome in this scenario. Extinction is a very real possibility for us humans, if we continue to damage the web of life that gave rise to our existence and sustains it.

Sadly, many folks have convinced themselves that we exist outside, or even above, the natural order. Some have 'faith' that an invisible-man-in-the-sky will whisk them away in his light, or some such makebelieve. Reality is that we are silly hairless monkeys who have great potential to do amazing things, however we must learn that in this universe consequences always rise from every action. Faith is the willful denial of reality, and it is a dangerous tool, used by the greedy few to manipulate and control the many. If we can not move past childhood fantasies, and deal with the greedy 1% that are destroying the planet for short-sighted gain, then we will get what we deserve.
