Alexandria some of your ideas are so 19th century.
Your concern with deindustrialisation and industrialization contradict each other. Industrialization created the climate change fiasco but you are worried about four decades of deindustrialisation in the United States.
Millions of good, high-wage jobs resurrected in the United States seems to be the antithesis to your basic premises. Manufacturing should be cut and not propped up. Less industry, less factories must be the real goal. Labor unions are a waste of time and resources going forward into the future.
A society based on 19th century technological advances does not reduce greenhouse gases. Solar and wind power is not free from problems that exasperate climate change and quality of life. To meet your goals, you must conserve energy use and act like a tight-fisted hoarder.
Reaching so far back to Karl Marx is perplexing. He was a wealthy, male, German/Jew: kind of a self-contained package of evil. In the future, and to some extent today, everyone will be in control of their own means of production and labor. All we need is an internet connection to a screen in our own little rooms.
Our life blood today flows through the internet. The future will be only more of the same. Wealth can be created and maintained by wifi. The bulk of energy production must be used to supply the appetite of our computers.
Many people work from home. We need a future where everyone works and stays at home, thereby saving energy on transportation, infrastructure, and buildings.
All training and education must come from the internet. A great deal of it does so already. We can demolish all schools and repurpose the material for warehouses housing machines to keep the internet alive. Teachers can move on to do art projects or just enjoy life. Think of the savings in heating and cooling those large number of buildings.
So much of the products we need to live are delivered right to our doors today. We can do better in the future by virtually stopping people from ever having to travel out of their rooms. The internet is the key, it is the only connection we must safeguard. Amazon: the staff of life.
If someone runs short of cash and the government funds aren’t enough, they can turn to the internet. An outrageous act publicized on computer screens already provides individuals with fame and fortune. Alexandria you must be aware of this and use it to advance your noble goals.
