One definition of insanity, is to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results. Yet this is precisely what we are all doing, with the inadequate systems and structures within our societies and the manner in which they all interrelate! 🙂
They were all designed in a ‘behind the ball’ manner without forethought to consequence, motivated mainly to raise perceived standards to be better than was seen elsewhere.
Rather than, the best situation possible for long-term good health and well-being, that could be created in the then and now.
And, standards designed centuries ago, with ridiculous inclusions so that changes cannot be readily made. Now these inclusions were for reasons of security, but are ironic and laughable now, when they are what is preventing our long-term security!!!
Our history did the best that it could with what it knew at the time, however we have evolved since then. Our societies based an enormous amount upon Charles Darwin’s work, that relied upon evolution. Do we consider we were never to further evolve? 😉
There were limits to what was known then. We are still living within these limits, and we and our planet are severely and chronically suffering.
Out of ignorance of what we Human Beings are as creative beings, needing to live within reflective flexibility, we made it so changes could not be made as is required, and we remain imprisoned and restrained by the ignorant creativity of our past.
We as a species need to be ‘reactively creative’, as our wisdom, feelings and intellect dictate.
Fortunately To Be Human IS TO CREATE – and why we have the size brain we do – so theoretically, intellectually, biologically, realistically, and practically we can create solutions to it all! 😉
We can so easily create improved replacement systems, forget about some completely, design fresh new ones entirely….
C’mon Everybody! 😀
