It's not very benificial, but in principal it is? Hmm, in principal, but not in practice. Fail basically.
Every man and his dog think they know that people will always be selfish, that there will always be war and corruption. The argument put forth in these films, by experts in human behavior, or genetics, at the top of their field, is that these types of behavior are symptoms of the environment we are raised in. To say there will always this or that simply has no basis. Our behavior, our mental and physical state, is defined by the society we are raised into, and the dominant group dictates the most common point of view.
Slightly big and baseless claim there. When I buy a pack of 36 sausages for £3 and eat that twice a day with potato wedges because that's all I can afford... it has something to do with my primal hunter-gatherer instinct? Ok... I would rather cook myself a caeser salad or enchilladas, but chicken is expensive.
Recent studies show that our mental/emotional state has a much greater effect on our physiology and health than previously assumed.
Ohhh, all the debt turns into profit, that makes sense. I wonder who is going to magically turn America's monumental deficit into profit that will happily benifit everyone. Oh of course, the 'invisible hand' of the free market will set it right.
And so more debt is created, just so business can boom. Oh and the debt lenders increase interest so maintain the value of their debt! How convienient for them. Too bad for the people who have to give up their home or business (or country) because they can no longer pay the interest.
Until then? Ain't gonna happen mate. What are we going to kill every baby that exceeds our baby quota for the year? But I hear eugentics is the solution (just want to make this clear, it is NOT the solution). And I'm sorry to drop it to you my friend, but the rates of inflation have been getting steadily worse for the past century. There is no more room for growth (peak oil), the labour market is shrinking and the population is still rising exponentially.
Nice one. There is no -ism that has ever based its society on the carrying capacity of the earth, that aims to rid humanity of uneccessary labour and hardship and create abundance through technology.
Science has raised our stadard of living beyond the dreams of people alive 100 years ago, and it can only get better, as long as we stop doing everything for the sake of profit, and do it for the sake of humanity and the environment, recognising that we must maintain a symbiotic relationship with the earth in order to fulfill our potential as a species. This is not about politics, but about progress and the systematic elimination of all the wasteful and disruptive behaviors, not by force or any inhumane act, but by understanding their true cause using the scientific method, and adapting the environment so that these tendencies disappear.
