Takes on the World
Ronald Wright, author:of A Short History of 'Progress'
 Jeff Blankfort  Contact Contributor
Wright speaks of urgency to deal with climate change and public’s mental roadblocks to do so; of inherent downside in all civilizations, their exploitation of nature, leading to collapse; of foolish trust in modernity and capitalist solutions; of inability to make do with less; of uncontrolled population growth with widening gap between rich and poor; of decimation of indigenous Americans through imported diseases in 500 year run that fed industrialization and Western coffers; how addiction to social media eliminates reflection time in societies demanding instant gratification..
