Are we drifting into a totalitarian World?

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:49 am by Aleksan

In the next few years drastic changes will be needed to reverse over population, climate change and loss of habitat on land and sea. Will people choose to eat lees meat, drive electric vehicles and cease to use air travel for recreational purposes? Will farmers prioritise soil health and carbon neutral practices? Will big business decide to cease using fossil fuels and plastic products? Can politicians, relying on votes, actually deliver Green policies, eliminate pollution, promote biodiversity and modify how the land and sea are exploited?

I don’t know if it is actually possible – people cling to what they are used to and resist uncomfortable change – and politicians have to go along with the lowest common denominator – or they will lose votes and not get elected. One thing seems sure to me – if democracy cannot deliver then change will not occur, and things will get worse. There will be an authoritarian response, maybe a military one, and we will lose our choices – and be made to obey the dictates of unelected Powers who will insist that they know what is best for us. Can we make sure this does not happen? Or will we drift into totalitarian world rule, or worse – devastating Wars?
