Sadly, another early adopter of negative mood behaviors has popped off, and has wound up dead:
Looking over his manifesto, a number of negative mood themes crop up and described by the Socionomic Model, in extreme forms:
- Anger: Self-explanatory
- Reduction in birth rate: "...All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions. In those programs' places, programs encouraging human sterilization and infertility must be pushed. All former pro-birth programs must now push in the direction of stopping human birth, not encouraging it...."
- Breaking down of existing structures of civilization: "Civilization must be exposed for the filth it is. That, and all its disgusting religious-cultural roots and greed. Broadcast this message until the pollution in the planet is reversed and the human population goes down!"
- The ecological movement as a new, extremist religion predicated on magical thinking: "Saving the environment and the remaning species diversity of the planet is now your mindset. Nothing is more important than saving them. The Lions, Tigers, Giraffes, Elephants, Froggies, Turtles, Apes, Raccoons, Beetles, Ants, Sharks, Bears, and, of course, the Squirrels. The humans? The planet does not need humans."
That last point is not strict Socionomic Theory, but a melding of the expected "magical thinking" that will dominate what passes for discourse and problem-solving, along with my own opinion that the ecological movement that was born at the beginning of Cycle Wave 4 in the late 1960's and early 1970's will serve as a new religion, doing for society what early Christianity did for the end of the Roman Empire:
- It will probably focus on breaking down the existing structure of government, commerce and social interaction.
- It will help "explain" the drop in production and employment as a result of Peak Oil or other factors.
- It will be a "story-telling" device to justify extreme reductions in population. Early Christianity proposed a hatred of the physical body and a full-on assault on sex as sin, along with the monastic movement to justify the population collapse in Western Europe 1600 years ago. The ecological movement could very well achieve similar results using different lingo attached to the same emotion.
Keep your eyes open for more of this tragic nonsense.
