Make economy accept limits
Whatever we do if we farm, if we fish or if we produce things and services limits will be a part of it.
As explained under Don’t believe the hype - Technology will not alone fix it! limits can touch an existential nerve in us human beings and accepting them means unconsciously accepting our final fate of death. Instead of accepting limits we want to see the human progress as unlimited, forever exploring and forever bending upwards and passing the final frontier.
So let us sit down in the ecological therapeutical sofa and reflect on our human limits and realize that is those limits that make us equal and empathic. Our struggles against the limits, trying to persevere through hardships, combine us and we can share the joy when our equals triumph despite the odds or limits being against them.
We can learn to embrace the limits and learn that progress is much much more than endless throughput of resources. Resources play an important part for our well-being but as recent times has shown us on a global scale so do the limits!
With that in our ecological mind we can explore how we can use finite minerals and renewables and the limit sinks within earths carrying capacity, within earth’s limits, to prosper!
