Unorthodox Truth: Decentralized Resilience, NOT Green New Deal

All of the mainstream notions pointed in the direction of saving the planet from its inhabitants, assume that the standards of living of those inhabitatnts will carry on. Most notbaly, the powers-that-be continue to act as if the only solution is to centralize controls of human behavior at the global level.

Centralization is touted as being most efficient, but it is also most fragile.

And given the still raging debate about global warming aka climate change, and the uncertainty as to whether industrialization has trumped cyclical climate processes or not, and when either warming or cooling will cross the thresholds, preparing for the worse case scenarios seems like a much better way of developing affordable resiliencies.

Decentralization and resiliency go hand in hand. Can’t have one without the other.

The added very important reason for shifting from trying to solve planet-sized predicaments led by people who do not put the average person’s welfare before their own, is that decentralization to local levels improves the chance that the governed will actually know the governers.

About michael burgwin

A child of the peace and antiWar movements, a Truther with self-diagnosed Opposition Defiance Disorder, formerly politically liberal tho now politically marooned, and Post-Doomer, on any issue, I trend to the conspiracy side, sort through the absurd, fantastical and insane, until I find firm ground usually located just the other side of the censorship firewall of propaganda and orthodoxy, dogma, and other either / or thinking.
