There is no "next".
There is no continuity.
Didn't we say it before?
It's all coming to an end.
The answer to the question "where are we going?"
is clear I think:
"we are going over the edge of the cliff".
We are moving towards the abyss.
are following our
system to its collapse.
All signs point in that direction..
None of the
actions of our leaders
shows contrition, questioning of the
system or a willingness to change
Quite the contrary.
persistence to continue
in this direction.
Continue at any cost.
cost will be high
from now on.
Let's get ready.
But why should we be led to disaster?
Won't those who
govern us see that
we are going over the cliff, and even

leaders say that we are on the wrong track,
because our system is condemned by its nature,
and that we should leave it quickly before it

On the contrary,
they are still talking about growth
which will begin soon.
You will not find a single political speech
which doesn't talk about growth.
increasing energy consumption
and increasing damage to the environment.
And for what purpose?
Only to increase
develop the economy.
A growth which they well know is no longer possible.
They laugh in our faces.
Unless they have something else in mind.
They hope to find
a way to make growth
possible again so that investment might
be profitable again.
Let us find a way
on the one hand to reduce the earth's population
to one tenth, so that we have a new population explosion, and on
the other hand to decrease the accumulated wealth of the earth
(houses, factories, ships, airports) to one tenth so that growth starts
again, and we have a new capitalist explosion.
To start the Monopoly game anew.
Do you understand
it is to achieve both these
goals with one "shot"?
