    All or nothing, One-size-fits-all Global system or nothing?

    I dont know if this is a VP or TZM view, or if its a view that is share by some and not others, or if this view has changed over time,

    but the notion that a RBE must be global or else, is criticized, and I must say I understand the criticism.

    The worlds people dont change their views and habits at the same pace. The people that developed the Bronze Age didnt wait till all people around the globe, even tribes in Amazonia, were ready to start smiting bronze tools.

    From one critics' perspective, the people that advocate nothing short of a global solution may as well be against it because this in effect inhibits its development.

    I think what is meant by that is that ultimately, if we want to have Global Sustainability/Stability, it will Need to spread throughout most of the World because we are looking at it with a One World View in that this is the only Planet that we all share so we must take car of it.

    But that would be the Final Goal. To begin it only takes some of the population to support this view and with time, hopefully gaining momentum to spread out until that Global reach can become a Common Goal.

    VP and TZM are still all-or-nothing but the scope has been reduced from the world to one city, the test city.

    Personally, I prefer multiple separate systems (food, work, transport, ...) that each slowly upgrade existing communities towards RBE and are easier to copy, adapt and implement. It seems how historically new systems like industrialization spread.

    It can only be called a solution if the entire globe is participating....in fact; w/out everyone participating, any type of solution will always be just out of reach IMO. That doesn't mean we don't start small and expand globally....BUT....the transition and 'any' solutions must be ALL INCLUSIVE from the start or they will fail.

    My personal take is a RBE does not have to be global but there should be room made for those who want to practice it. What has to be global, no matter what resource management preference people chose, is the preservation of the environment. Whether you want to practice a moneyless economy or a monetary one, neither should be allowed the
    power to, 1. force itself upon those who don't wish to practice it, and, 2. the control and authority to exploit and wreck the planet beyond use.
