“…An Oligarchy on the Brink of a Civilization-Threatening Collapse”
I find myself constantly referencing this article, Why Trump-Sanders Phenomenon Signals an An Oligarchy on the Brink of a Civilization-Threatening Collapse, by Dr. Sally Goener. It makes sense of our place at the cusp of a historical cycle of social transformation that tracks back through history, where every 80-90 years a great transition occurs. The article starts this way:
“The collapse of urban cultures is an event much more frequent than most observers realize. Often, collapse is well underway before societal elites become aware of it, leading to scenes of leaders responding retroactively and ineffectively as their society collapses around them.” – Sander Vander Leeuw, Archaeologist, 1997
You’ll find me talking about this article on Episode #5 of SUE’s Video Programs.
Dr. Sally J. Goerner, director of the Research Alliance for Regenerative Economics (“RARE”), is Capital Institute’s science advisor. Capital Institute is, “Working to explore and effect the economic transition to a more just, regenerative, and thus sustainable way of living on this earth through the transformation of finance.” Interestingly and admirably, Capital Institute was founded by John Fullerton, a former managing director of JPMorgan.
