|The "high tide" syndrome.|
The problem with anthropogenic global warming induced climate change is not a lack of technology, a lack of engineering prowess, or a lack of scientific ability to create wondrous new technology.
The problem is that the psychopaths who run this joint do not use technology for the common good, instead they use it selfishly for themselves, because they are full of the myth of selfish genes, and other demented ideology.
This series, and others on Dredd Blog, have shown that ultimately they use technology to commit depraved heart murder (Oil-Qaeda & MOMCOM Conspire To Commit Depraved-Heart Murder- 2).
One of the latest National Geographic episodes (video below), following the fox propaganda machine's purchase of that once authentic informative endeavor, was to finger technology as the saviour of civilization.
The same technology that is and has been destroying the base of life which civilization rests upon.
They came to this conclusion, about their technology being their savior, after a psychoanalysis of Williy Nigh and the No-Cigars, by The Psyche Terminator (the remains of The Fugs).
This after ignoring what none other than Sigmund Freud warned of.
He warned of the consequences of conflating individual psychosis with cultural psychosis:
I would not say that such an attempt to apply psychoanalysis to civilized society would be fanciful or doomed to fruitlessness.(Social Dementia Causes Heated Misunderestimations - 3). The problem is deeper than the psychopathology of individuals; much deeper.
The diagnosis of collective neuroses, moreover, will be confronted by a special difficulty. In the neurosis of an individual we can use as a starting point the contrast presented to us between the patient and his environment which we assume to be normal. No such background as this would be available for any society similarly affected; it would have to be supplied in some other way. And with regard to any therapeutic application of our knowledge, what would be the use of the most acute analysis of social neuroses, since no one possesses power to compel the community to adopt the therapy? In spite of all these difficulties, we may expect that one day someone will venture upon this research into the pathology of civilized communities.
The deep problem is a cultural trance phenomenon that is in want of diagnosis and treatment; at a place, a social institution or two that can and will transform whole cultures from their trances.
It does not exist.
It is one thing when an individual is transfixed, but it is entirely another when cultures become captured in trances of their own making (Choose Your Trances Carefully, 3; Comparing a Group-Mind Trance to a Cultural Amygdala).
Civilizations left to themselves and their technology, without a dynamic and serious cultural psychiatry that has teeth, will generally commit "suicide" according to the historian Toynbee, a phenomenon we call ecocide these days:
"In other words, a society does not ever die 'from natural causes', but always dies from suicide or murder --- and nearly always from the former, as this chapter has shown."(Petroleum Civilization: The Final Chapter (Confusing Life with Death) - 4, quoting historian Arnold J. Toynbee). Extolling the virtue of a science of mind that can only focus on individuals, but cannot concentrate on the psychological direction a culture is taking, is in fact simply the cultural denial and ignoring of the problem (Agnotology: The Surge).
It guarantees the demise of civilization (Civilization Is Now On Suicide Watch).
