More depravity of reason is the outcome of the pseudo optimization of economics suggested by circular economics, and the like.
The way I’ve seen circular economics described is as yet another take on the exchange of goods and services which does not solve the much more pertinent issue of the renewability of mankind (for it does not cover man as an inevitable resource), nor does it cover the relationship with freedom as the hierarchical imperative of such renewability. As a result of downstream optimization of the economic religions of our past circular economics will merely inherit many of the same old higher-order flaws, and process them differently.
To state the issue differently:
The perfection of voodoo in the voodoo of economics does not make it less so.
So, while circular economics appears to attempt to optimize undesired consequences from fundamentally flawed economics, Renewable Economics™ is about affecting the cause and thereby preventing the metastasis of many unwanted consequences. More depravity of reason is the nasty outcome of a continued confounding of consequence and cause in the pseudo optimization of economics.
Renewable Economics™ is based on a newly established relativity of freedom. A higher normalization of root-cause problems that exists because we have played hooky with freedom – for all too long. Renewable Economics™ is not a totalitarian one-size-fits-all approach but a relativity theory that takes into account and is driven by the sovereignty of nation-states. We must categorically shun all totalitarian approaches, such as circular economics, in their attempt to encircle the world with a single mold, despite their sometimes well-meaning intent.
For the value of our differences is more important to evolution than the value of our commonalities.
