In response to an article on a possible future water crisis, ProfessorBamBam wrote this on Reddit:
- Money and the economy are virtual constructs that can be replaced in one second flat by an act of Parliament (if one government had the balls to stand up to the banks, the edge fund investors, the financial markets and the billionaires).
- The environment, water, nature, animals are real and cannot be replaced with an act of Parliament.
If we only concern ourselves with the economy, something that only exist in our heads and in the memory chips of the financial institutions, we risk losing far more than money, we risk losing our capacity to survive on this planet.
In short: Stop worrying about what does not exist (money) and start worrying about what exists (reality) before it is too late.
