The Clawback Of Human Development

I recommend my readers to watch the Disney/Pixar movie Ratatouille. It is full of important life lessons. In the movie, the leading rat drifts down the sewer system, suddenly accelerating at warp speed down an intersection of pipes, not knowing what direction to steer his float and the outcome of his choice. Life is full of those kinds of decisions where you cannot predict the outcome.

Fortunately, unpredictability is no longer the case for the development of the human species. We took the path of least resistance and ended up with a mess many of us are blissfully unaware of and sell to the world as human excellence. We developed constructs fundamentally incompatible with nature’s evolution and, therefore, have put undue pressure on human existence and renewal as we hurtle down the sewer of a fantasy world we have created for ourselves.

I suggest reading The Rodents in America’s Viscera for an update on the dire consequences of mistaken reality.

The futile ability to write our own report card hides the bleak reality that nature’s first-principles in actuality, determine our success. We are only great when nature approves of our greatness. Therefore, we must begin to understand and play nature’s game to survive the test of time. Fortunately, we are an intelligent species who can admit our mistakes and reason for systematically better outcomes. All it takes is to diss manmade make-believe and crawl back to a new and higher normalization of nature’s truth to follow the direction nature lays out for us.

Choose Wisely

Here is the fork-in-the-road animation I created to remedy our debilitating state of humanity:

The path we rolled down is the growth for the sake of growth ideology of a cancer cell pursued by the short-term personal interests of those managing the arbitrage of finance now grown to the tune of eleven times the size of production, to which only a very narrow sliver of the population contributes. This unsustainable predicament will implode or explode on us no matter how many sauces of oxymoronic sustainability are poured over. Today’s growth artificially promotes all-for-me-and-nothing-for-anyone-else vile maxims responsible for the distrust in our collective societal interests and, when globalized, an anthropogenic cascade.

We need to focus on the strength of human renewal and build policy, capital, and innovation systems to use that guide as our compass. We rebuild the strength of human renewal as nature’s evolutionary imperative and reestablish the freedom and trust in our personal interests that contribute to the strength of human renewal, squeezing out the vile maxim of personal interests that destroys societies. A large swath of the population with diverse skill sets will then be able to contribute to human adaptability to nature’s entropy, the essence of human survival.

Choose wisely because the future of humanity depends on it.

The sign of a vibrant, innovative nation is its willingness to pursue the ever-unfolding discovery of nature's truth and reinvent itself continually against those proven new normalizations upstream. Let’s inspire the world with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
