What do climate change and democracy have in common?
Question from the Internet:
“Does climate change demand democracy reform, and in what ways? How does climate change threaten democracy?”
Climate change and democracy do not have any direct relationship with each other. Climate change is a process, a state in Nature, while democracy is an artificial human invention in our search to try to build stable, peaceful equal, and sustainable societies.
In relation to climate change at this stage, we can’t even comprehend what it is, how it unfolds, what cause and effect processes play part in it since we are totally incompatible with Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent system. What we call “sciences” today are simply hapless, limited, and misleading attempts to hardly scratch the surface of a Natural system we have no access to due to our incompatibility.
In relation to democracy, it has failed like all other ideologies, human systems we tried before due to the same, inherently selfish, egoistic, individualistic, and exploitative human nature which also causes our incompatibility with Nature.
If we want to comprehend climate change and all other growing global problems we are facing — with desperate helplessness, if we want to know how to build truly sustainable, positive, equal human societies, then we need to research, recognize our true nature, the actual desires, and intentions that drive us towards self-destruction.
Then when we accepted our incompatibility with Nature and incompatibility with each other and we are willing to change ourselves, then we will start to understand the causes of all our human and environmental problems and then we will be able to also find solutions, the right reactions to them.
Without purposefully, willingly changing ourselves, how we relate to each other and Nature we will continue drowning in our baseless, futile ideologies, systems until we actually self-destruct.
