Compilation: Big banks, markets and business as usual

The systemic inequity / corruption of our suicidal, growth-reliant, fossil fuel-addicted global economy.

“We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” ~ Indigenous peoples proverb

Nutshell

This is a compilation in progress of material / developments related to the systemic inequity / corruption of big banks / markets / business as usual, and our insane / suicidal / growth-reliant / fossil fuel-addicted world economy that:

  • compromises / betrays our political processes / collective morality
  • perpetuates / thrives on oppression / injustice
  • encourages / requires / rewards a culture of greed / fraud / trickery
  • feeds on the devastation of our environment everywhere
  • poses a clear and present threat to the survival of civilization / humanity, most life and most future life RIGHT NOW

Reality

Difficult as it is to communicate, absorb and process, let alone accept, and as shrill / alarmist as it may sound…

Our shared atmosphere is on an accelerating course to reach a state of potentially unsurvivable global climate extremes during the lives of today’s children and teens. (Compilation: +4C by 2060s or sooner catastrophic / incompatible with organized civilization.)

Clear, present impacts ALREADY displace millions / KILL hundreds of thousands each year, and compromise the lives of billions RIGHT NOW.

No less than the fate of all generations of all peoples and most species hangs in the balance TODAY.  And only emergency international action at emergency (world war-time) speed FAST *may be* proportional enough to confront the scale, scope and urgency of what is ALREADY the greatest crime against humanity, most life and most future life EVER. (Compilation: Betrayal of Life.)
