End of time
Many people realize now that there is no hope for the human species. The pollution and the climate change has now proved to be more alarming than we knew. It's to late now. We have already crossed the bridge. Economic liberalism can't solve the problem. If everyone is free to maximize their profits without restrictions an environmental disaster will be the end result. Economic liberalism is ruling the world and its basic idea is that restrictions on the free market are bad.
So, economic liberalism failed, communism failed and the mixed economies failed. All empires will fall, and what we see now is the end years of this global empire.
Also the religions failed. What is Christianity but 2000 years of terror? Hundreds of years of inquisition trials and torture chambers, participation in the slave trade and colonialism, not to mention the “spare the rod and spoil the child” way of looking at life. Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, what did they bring about but war? Catholics against Protestants, Sunni Muslims against Shia Muslims, Hindus against Muslims, Jews against Palestinians…
All our belief systems have failed and proved to be disastrous. There is no hope for us and there is nothing we can do about it.
This is not just negative thinking, it's facts and it's hard to digest facts. It's hard to digest that there is no cure to your cancer, it's hard to digest that your wife has left you and it's hard to digest that all your beliefs were nothing but misunderstandings.

It may be too late for the masses but it may not be too late for you. My understanding of evolution(biological) is that a major change or crisis occurs in the environment and a species either adapts and continues on or disappears. (I say "disappears" because we don't actually know(scientifically)if the lifeforce or energy of a being ends. Do we? Of course death is the polarity for birth but it is not the end of life. It is a transformation.) In the same way we are now at a "crossroads" for our species; for a few there is evidence that the ego can dissolve in a person before their physical body dies. (i.e. Eckhart Tolle) The remarkable thing is that we don't have to "do" anything to advance this "evolution" into consciousness because it is here, now. And in that awareness of being present in the "now" a being is "healed" AND evolved. ((Not a judgement toward anyone else!) Excuse me, I read and listen to Tolle alot!! It is one of the most soothing and satisfying effortless endeavors I know of!)

I like the way you can write about the insanity in the world with such utter clarity. But I know the "hope" for the earth and us lies in each ego death transformed into the oneness of myriad expressions/diversity. Living without an ego changes EVERYTHING without having to "do" anything. A person with an ego cannot adapt to the crisis which the egos have collectively created. Without ego we automatically drop our beliefs all at once or gradually. But it is ALWAYS in the Now. And with that the madness will implode on itself. It will die out. Be transformed one at a time all at once!

With each ego dissolved one less person suffers, probably two! Who knows? we may begin to see mass ego suicide! OH JOY TO THE WORLD!
