Have we used up all our resources? Have we filled up all the livable space on Earth? Paul Gilding suggests we have, and the possibility of devastating consequences, in a talk that’s equal parts terrifying and, oddly, hopeful.

In short… the myths of ever expanding economies and limitless growth are just that myths. It doesn’t matter where you borrow your resources to fuel growth the simple fact is we WILL be running out of most of the resources that have powered our global economy quite possibly in our lifetime.

The current financial crisis will be a lot MORE devastating then we are being lead to believe. The simple fact is… unrelenting debt to power an unrealistic global economy will be our ultimate demise.

You can’t borrow against a future that has already been spent.

Once the bread basket of the world. It’s arms perpetually outstretched to welcome the world.

Now a morally, politically and financially bankrupt state that is driven more by fear than rational thought.

It’s citizens hypnotized into submission by television, the web and a virtually endless supply phony credit to fund their fairy tale economy powered solely by consumption.

Mainstream Media Feeds A Brain Dead Citizenry Road Kill While Corporate America Continues to Raid THEIR Treasury

NYTimes:
But the arc of history does not bend toward justice through capitulation cast as compromise. It does not bend when 400 people control more of the wealth than 150 million of their fellow Americans. It does not bend when the average middle-class family has seen its income stagnate over the last 30 years while the richest 1 percent has seen its income rise astronomically. It does not bend when we cut the fixed incomes of our parents and grandparents so hedge fund managers can keep their 15 percent tax rates. It does not bend when only one side in negotiations between workers and their bosses is allowed representation. And it does not bend when, as political scientists have shown, it is not public opinion but the opinions of the wealthy that predict the votes of the Senate. The arc of history can bend only so far before it breaks.
