I’m getting more and more interested in understanding the wider economy and how the financial sector influences it. The gained insights are rather shocking.
There were the stone age people, the iron age people and so on. We are the hydrocarbon age people who brought about the second industrial revolution. In doing so, organised society and our only habitable environment may have been brought to their knees. The former depends on the latter.
A crushing realisation!
This week I watched two documentaries that summarise so well the state of the world today and where it might go. A stark reality. Some sparks of hope. It seems left to the young generations to fix the wrong-doings of the past. However, all the little things that each and every one of us can do, count as well.
Cultural change is not brought about by few, it requires us all.
~~ I urge you to watch these two videos. ~~
