122. I can't see it as a war.

Not in terms of the way tribes and nations will go to war with each other. What we've done is use natural resources to create other human beings. The parts of nature that weren't conducive to this, we either alter or destroy. The problem is, globally we're near a crash, and this time, I don't see what the solution could be. In the 70s, the solution was the Green Revolution. It worked. The result though? We simply created more and more people all over the globe.

Even if we untie this noose around our necks, we can't maintain population growth like this.

The problems have included greed, inability to organize on the scale needed, distrust of the information, this is caused by long outmoded scriptures putting dogma ahead of spiritualism, but also by entrenched, moneyed interests who can't see beyond the human threat to their power.
