    How many are aware of society's problems?

    A pretty broad question indeed, but it's interesting to think about when considering how close we could be to a transition into a NLRBE, all depending on the knowledge of the general population.

    How many know about the substantial growth in recent times of resource depletion, technological unemployment, poverty, and environmental destruction for example, just to name a few, and the true technical reasons for them?
    How many know about the highly competitive, unsustainable, self-destructive nature of our market economy that is inherent in its foundation?
    How many know how truly insignificant any attempts at fixing these problems is without going to the absolute core?

    How many know... that we need to truly change ourselves?

    Not enough, I would suppose.

    But then again how many of any generation are truly aware?

    The point is to get the masses to follow those few who are.

    "The stress of nature never ends, but at a certain level still other driving forces originate which put the whip to the creative power of man with a multiplied force... The new relations are detected first by a few (with the finest moral tentacles), afterwards by more, then they are consolidated in rules which begin to push aside the earlier moral code and in the end eliminate it."

    "They who decry the loss of masculinity the loudest, are certain of it in themselves the least."

    The funny thing is that supporters of the monetary system may say that we have to change ourselves to be the best parasite/predator/opportunistic pathogen as possible.

    I think we already fit that description quite well. no?

    All one need do is look around to see what damage has been done.....by and for us....only us....

    I'm new here so I haven't yet seen any models for how the transition would take place. I'd be ready to move away from the monetary economy today if there was a practical, viable option. I suspect that there are quite a few people out there that have realized that there's something fishy about the monetary economy even if they haven't "seen the light", but since there is no alternative, they just go with the system.

    Well, it's slavery, but the slaves are paid too well to protest.
