Collapse and Creation

Scientists at NASA’s Goddard Space Center recently released a report on the potential collapse of our civilization.

The report analyzes past collapses and identifies the shared factors, which bring on collapse: population, climate, water, agriculture, and energy. Collapse begins when only two of these factors fail. The report goes on to draw comparisons between the state of our current civilization and past ones. Based on their historical analysis, the scientists summarized that we are heading straight for collapse in coming decades. 

We see some characteristics of a society in collapse already. The elites in power turn a blind eye to the coming disaster in order to protect their status, power and wealth, while the poor and middle class face the horrors of food and water shortages brought on by climate disruption and economic instability brought on by the inequitable distribution of wealth and resources.

It isn’t all bad news, though. The report also indicates that it is not too late for us to save ourselves. “The two key solutions are to reduce economic inequality so as to ensure fairer distribution of resources, and to dramatically reduce resource consumption by relying on less intensive renewable resources and reducing population growth.”

No report to date gives us more reason to continue organizing for a democracy movement with enough power to demand an economic system that works for all of us, protects the natural world which supports all life on this planet, and recognizes the equality of all human beings. We at Move to Amend understand that transnational corporate hegemony is at the root of all that ails us.

The starting point to stave off collapse and create a functioning society is to abolish Corporate Personhood and money as protected political speech.

And, it all begins with the Motion to Amend. Will you find ten people to sign the Motion to Amend petition this week? Share the link online or find blank petitions for printing and sharing here

We are all the ones the world is waiting for!
