Yes, we need to refigure work, culture, and how to share this world with our neighbors and other species.

Very insightful story. Finally the truth comes out. A wake-up call that no governments seem to be talking about or addressing. Thanks for posting Freya.

Great article. So true that we can't simply grow our way out of our economic crisis and all the suffering that entails. In addition to the problem of infinite growth on a finite planet, "growth" is used to sell some very destructive policies, such as "free trade" agreements that only benefit the wealthiest while making things worse for everyone else and the world we live in.

Our society needs to somehow be able to get basic resources where they are needed without first needing large profits to be made by a select few, and limit or change destructive behavior even if it means the behavior is making large profits for a select few. I don't know how this can be done.
