Industrialization: Prelude to Collapse

Dear 1000 Friends,

For your consideration:

Carrying Capacity, Overshoot and Species Extinction
Paul Chefurka got (stole)  his ideas from William Catton:
In a way, the world-view of the party imposed itself most successfully on the people incapable of understanding it. They could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality, because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them, and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening. By lack of understanding, they remained sane. They simply swallowed everything, and what they swallowed did them no harm, because it left no residue behind, just like a grain of corn will pass undigested through the body of a bird. —George Orwell, 1984


Industrialization: Prelude to Collapse
by William Catton

CIRCUMSTANCE: The Age of Exuberance is over, population has already overshot carrying capacity, and prodigal Homo sapiens has drawn down the world's savings deposits.
CONSEQUENCE: All forms of human organization and behavior that are based on the assumption of limitlessness must change to forms that accord with finite limits.
Darwinian 1 - aka Ron Patterson still argues that the Darwinian THEORY of Evolution is concrete fact...
Well, he couldn't be more wrong.
And quite frankly, the Universe teems with life and doesn't care.

As  a constructive alternative - I suggest that you consider the following:
