What actions could realistically lead society away from the problems I have been writing about?   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Chomsky has, amongst others, advocated that when one has a corrupted framework (e.g. a corrupted political and social system - and by social, I include industry and commerce etc) it is necessary to first dismantle and then rebuild from the ground up. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Anyone trying to protect a corrupted system will attempt to portray this not only as a wasted effort (since there is, they would assert, nothing to repair) but indeed as some sort of irrational and hateful and destructive aim.

Removal of resistance: At an individual level, in the cases of those who gain through one form of privilege or another over the many who are unprivileged - there is little or no evidence that most human beings in the same situation would not respond to the same inner calls of fear, greed, laziness and desire in the same way as today's privileged. Unification: So we have to aim very high. We can't alter the future by shooting down too small a part of the framework. Whatever is holding the whole thing up needs to be the object of the prime target of our actions. That target needs to be removal. We have to point at what holds up the whole corrupted structure and just eradicate that support so that the entire structure crashes down and can be rebuilt, finally.

'I' have a thought which 'I' think must be remembered by everyone in every language, of every age and gender, indeed no matter what social constructions 'you' use to label 'yourself', even the word 'you', which differentiates 'you' from 'me' too much and makes 'us' divide into separated ideals, often clashing with each other foolishly, rather than finding the symbiosis which some may feel is more likely to lead to a safer future for everyone involved.

The thought is this: parents want their children to have stuff, when they die they leave their children stuff. When they are alive, they try hard to give stuff to their children, to have stuff so their children can have it - food, shelter, etc and anything else they can or need or want. Humanity together has to look at its future generations like that. Whether we die in nuclear war en masse and only a few survive, whether we are hit by a meteor and a few escape into space, whether the few or many survive, your children or mine, or theirs (the kids of you or I), or whosever, all that really matters is we leave all of them the best resources we can and that whoever it is who survives makes it, with those resources, and furthers the line of humanity as it spreads out into space. Once you see it like that, without taking any sides, without dividing the 'us' up into 'you' and 'me' and 'them' and 'us' - you really can do the best for the human race. The absolute best would certainly involve ending all forms of war immediately and preventing any future loss of anyone's children, yours or mine or theirs or whosever's.
