THE FUTURE OF MANKIND IS DECIDED RIGHT NOW. THIS YEAR, NEXT YEAR.
—“So it really is a fight between civicism and religion for supremacy”—
The connection isn’t clear.
1) the people you have (biological, behavioral) and the people you have (knowledge, understanding, values) are not the same criteria.
Governing with the people you have (incentives, constant) is a question of possibility, and governing with the people you have (education) is merely a question of costs and externalities.
We can continue to kick the can down the road and NOT produce a ‘bible’ of western civilization, that would solve the problem.
Or we can solve the problem despite its cost, in a period where there is high demand for the solution to the problem.
2) civicism, localism, nationalism, evolution, competition vs religion, universalism, globalism, devolution, corruption.
Al these problems are the same source: easy female dysgenic and boil the frog vs hard male eugenic and transcend. It’s not like we have an infinite amount of time.
The frequency of geological events capable of wiping out humans is higher than the frequency of climate variations. The frequency of astronomic events is lower, but it’s still continuous.
The future of mankind is decided right now. this year, next year.
A few more years and its over. there are no ‘undiscovered countries’ with reserves of human ability remaining. We have exploited the pool of humans as thoroughly as exploiting the world’s resources.
