.....................
When people debate Afghanistan or any other problem they behave as if it is the only problem...........As if it is the first and last problem on earth.........Destruction of forests, rivers, oceans, glaciers, atmosphere by hundred years of relentless industrial activity is going to decimate/ wipe out the human species in the next few years........Millions of other species have already been decimated.........More than 99% collapse of this planet has already happened.

Destroying in hundred years what nature created in millions of years is millions of times bigger problem and crime than any other problem and crime in this world.

.
.

Global wars and global terrorism were created by weapon industry, transportation industry, communication industry, banking industry..

Global interference, global wars, global terrorism, global news, global debates..........All these problems were created by industrialization.

All problems of industrial society are unsolvable because industrialization itself is the cause of problems.

Pre-industrial society had localized problems........There was zero news, zero debate, zero controversy in pre-industrial society because news industry, communication industry, debate industry did not exist.
.

We are living in a world where people cannot even control their body weight and they are trying to control the world.

We are living in a world where people cannot even solve personal and family problems and they are trying to solve national and international problems.

We are living in a world where even marriage agreements are not working and people think international agreements are going to work.
.
.
.
Stop wasting time on one issue at a time..........Industrial society running on electricity and oil has existed for only hundred years.........Everything that is happening in industrial society is wrong,,
.

How can one species get food, clothing, shelter PLUS thousands of consumer goods and services on a small planet which is just 40,000 km in circumference when millions of other species got only food from earth for millions of years???

Height of Insanity........Insanity raised to the power of Infinity.
.
.

Living in industrial society was not even an option.......Agrarian society was the limit for man on earth.

Humans lived in food searching society for hundreds of thousands of years.......In food producing society for about 10,000 years.......Consumer goods producing industrial society is the anomaly /aberration........Industrial society running on electricity and oil has existed for just about hundred years.

Duration of industrial society is so small that it is almost zero percent of total human existence on earth.
.
.
Only food searching / food producing societies were sustainable on earth........Only physical work was sustainable..........Consumer goods producing society has destroyed the planet..........Mental work / Desk jobs have destroyed the planet.
.
.
.

You can never escape from chaos, madness and destruction once you have created extra jobs and professions.........Industrial society has done just that........Industrial society has created hundreds of extra and destructive professions for its urban population which is not producing food which was the main occupation for thousands of years before industrialization.
.
.

For millions of years there was just one main activity / occupation on earth - "Searching for Food" / "Producing Food"..........Urban population of industrial society is the anomaly that is producing consumer goods and services.

For millions of years, both adults and the offspring of millions of animal species "searched for food".

For 1 million years in hunter_gatherer society both adults and children "searched for food".

For 10,000 years in agrarian society, most of the adults and children "produced food"

In industrial society (running on electricity and oil) which has only existed for 100 years, urban adults are producing consumer goods and services in industries and corporations..........Their children go to schools and universities where they learn how to produce and sell consumer goods in future.

................
Desk jobs have destroyed this planet in hundred years.........Physical work kept this planet safe for millions of years........Physical work = Constancy and safety of planet.........Mental work = Continuous change and destruction of planet.
.
Do you know why new professions kept emerging every year in the last hundred years........Why new products kept emerging every year in the last hundred years???

For millions of years there was constancy in this world.........Millions of other species lived the same way for millions of years........Man lived the same way in forests for hundreds of thousands of years.........Man lived almost the same way in agrarian society for 10,000 years.

What led to the madness of "continuous change" from the sanity of "permanent constancy" in the last hundred years???
.
.

The switch-over from physical work to mental work / desk jobs has destroyed this planet in hundred years.

You can do the same physical work day after day, year after year, decade after decade, century after century.......But you cannot do the same mental work again and again........Once you have solved a problem of mathematics you cannot keep solving it again and again........You need a new problem, a different problem.

Try reading yesterday's newspaper again.
.

The madness of wanting something new all the time......The madness of chasing something new all the time came with the switch-over from physical work to mental work.

Pre-industrial society that did physical work had constancy........Industrial society which does mental work has continuous change, restless minds and devastated environment.

You can never escape from chaos, madness and destruction once you switch-over from physical work to mental work / desk jobs.
.
.
.
Physical Work, Subjective Experience, Religion and Spirituality did not destroy the planet in millions of years..........Scientific / Technological Thinking has destroyed the planet in just hundred years.

We can use our time and energy for three kinds of activities........Physical Work, Subjective Work (Experience) and Mental Work.

For millions of years environment did not get destroyed because activity was limited to physical work or subjective experience.........Millions of animal species did physical work........Man did physical work in hunter_gatherer stage and agrarian stage.......A very small percentage of population that did not do physical work spent its time and energy on subjective experience - religion, spirituality, yoga, meditation, pranayama and the arts.

Largescale destruction of environment began when man started using his time and energy for mental work - Science, Technology, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Business, Finance, Economics.........This led to invention of industrial machines running on Steam, Electricity and Oil........This led to industrialization and production (and selling) of thousands of consumer goods and services.

As long as we limited our activity to physical work or subjective experience we destroyed very little environment.

When we switched over to Scientific / Technological Thinking, we started producing thousands of consumer goods in millions of industries and corporations and ended up destroying the planet in just about 100 years.
.
.
.

Physical work of industrial society is also highly destructive because it is just an extension of mental work of industrial society............Physical work for mining of hundreds of metals and minerals is happening because scientists and engineers doing desk jobs designed thousands of consumer goods whose production requires all the mining.

Physical work in construction promotes construction industry.........Physical work in manufacturing promotes manufacturing industry.

Both mental work and physical work of industrial society promoted industrial activity that has destroyed this planet.

Pre-industrial physical work was very different.........It was primarily for producing food.
.
.
.

The madness of billions of pages of debate is also a consequence of the switch-over from physical work to mental work.........There was almost zero debate in pre-industrial society that did physical work when the medium for debate did not exist.

Billions of pages of debate is another toxic waste of industrial society just like billions of tonnes of plastic waste, chemical waste, gaseous waste and e-waste..........It was created by print industry, news industry, radio, television, computers, smart phones, internet, social media.

Only food searching / food producing societies were sustainable on earth........Only physical work was sustainable..........Consumer goods producing society has destroyed the planet..........Mental work / Desk jobs have destroyed the planet.
.
.
.
For hundred years the urban population of industrial society has been fooling the non-urban population with numbers, figures and terminologies.......Progress, Development, Growth Rate, Economy Rate, GDP.
.

If Urban Society stops its supplies to Rural Society it will live forever.
.
If Rural Society stops its supplies to Urban Society it will die within a month.
.
That is the worth of Urban Jobs, Consumer Goods, Growth Rate, Economy Rate and GDP.
.
.

Urban jobs and professions have destroyed the planet.

The entire urban population of industrial society is criminal.

The crime goes unchecked because 50% of world population is now urban.

The crime goes unchecked because urban population is running the system.
.
.
.

You can never escape from chaos, madness and destruction once you have created extra jobs and professions.........Industrial society has done just that........Industrial society has created hundreds of extra and destructive professions for its urban population which is not producing food which was the main occupation for thousands of years before industrialization.

For hundreds of thousands of years, humans lived in forests where both adults and children "searched for food".

For thousands of years in agrarian society, most of the adults and children "produced food"

In industrial society (running on electricity and oil) which has only existed for 100 years, urban adults are producing consumer goods and services in industries and corporations..........Their children go to schools and universities where they learn how to produce and sell consumer goods in future.
.
.
.
What would happen to your home if 1000 people entered and started working non-stop, picking up all the things lying in your home, breaking them up to produce new things out of them?

Your home will get ruined in one day.

This is exactly what has happened to the planet in the last 100 years.......Billions of urban people worked non-stop in millions of industries and corporations producing thousands of consumer goods which has led to the destruction of forests, rivers, oceans and atmosphere........It has led to the decimation of millions of land and marine species.
