Non-material system changing surprise activity gift #1
To show that an economic system based on eternal growth is impossible
Through a social media challenge.
“Welcome to the #SpaceshipEarthChallenge
To prepare for the challenge take a balloon and pour a tablespoon of wheat flour into it and then fill the balloon with air until the balloon is full.
When filling the balloon with air you can use your own lungs, several lungs or technical apparatus but you may never manipulate the balloon in any other way.
Oh and wear protective gear for your eyes and ears because planet destruction is noisy.
Now that the preparations are done. Here is the challenge: Blow air into the balloon forever!
I didn’t succeed but maybe someone else will. Nominate anyone to the challenge, preferably to a person fortuned with power. Good luck!”
Person and air = forever growing economy
Explosion = economy crossing limits and destroying planet and its people
If you stopped before the balloon exploded you understood that nothing, even the economy can grow forever on a limited space, earth, no matter what technology used.
If your balloon exploded, now you understand!
