With cosmological and planetary evidence demoting the self-aggrandizing superiority of humanity, it behooves our species to acknowledge, comprehend, and learn about the rules of nature dictating human survival.
Unchanged, the aging manmade normalizations of truth, stuck in narrow-minded monisms of absolutism, spawn and glorify modern-day vile-maxims that wreak havoc on the regenerative excellence of humanity.
Sure, humans live longer than in the middle ages, and crime is significantly down since, even when we include the wars we fought, according to cognitive psychologist, linguist, and popular science author Steven Pinker. We must be on the up and up is the murmur I hear often. Not so fast.
A Third-World In First-World Veneer
In the United States, the length of our individual lives is below that of other developed countries, and no prognosticator of the strength of human renewal. So, let’s shed empirical light on the aspects affecting the strength of human renewal.
We, in the U.S., have a 15.8% extreme poverty rate with more than the entire population of Venezuela, Peru, or Malaysia – 36 million people – on food stamps. Twenty-five percent of our children in public schools are poor and on food support with very limited life-experiences. Leading, as research shows, to long-term mental disabilities, crime, early pregnancies, with a growing number of children stuck in the same cyclical predicament.
Sixty percent of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, enslaved to a job, and their often incorrigible bosses, unable to switch for fear of losing benefits, with less than $400 in savings for an emergency, tied to the “American Dream” that pays less than $40K per year. A virtually inescapable and paltry income given the cost of living in the U.S., further pressurized by taxes, pay-to-play contributions, and out-of-pocket medical expenses.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are freeGoethe
The U.S. is the second most obese country in the world, after Mexico, spending 18% of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) on healthcare.
Seventy percent of the total population, 270 million people, are chronically dependent on prescription drugs, most on antidepressants, precariously balancing a knife-edge of sanity and survival with an offspring inheriting the same. By 2028, health care spending in the U.S. will reach nearly one-fifth of GDP, accumulating to about 6.2 trillion U.S. dollars in total.
On the education side, The U.S. track-record is not any better. We placed 24th out of 71 countries in science, doing worse in math, ranking 38th. Forcing the U.S. to deploy a liberal immigration policy to enhance the quality of the workforce.
Unchanged, our manmade manacles, constructs in violation of nature’s principles we designed and adhered to, continue to reduce the regenerative capacity, evolutionary strengthening, and excellence of humanity responsible for a self-induced and unnecessary anthropogenic cascade.
Despite the overwhelming evidence of significant downside, a world, seemingly full of people incapable of thinking for themselves, has followed in our footsteps. It is high time for humanity to abide by the excellence of nature, systemically.
We can and must reinvent our world anew.
