"You help me help you help everyone" sums up a 30 million year old economic system based in natural abundance that I call "Dolphin Economics." Dolphins have existed on Earth for so long by evolving an economic system that is in harmony with the Natural Order.
Mankind traded the economics of abundance for the economics of scarcity when political decisions were made that effectively shifted human economic values into anti-natural dependence on toxic, finite, unevenly distributed chemicals. That spiritless choice determined the terminal trajectory of humankind into which we were born, believing it to be "normal" and our only choice. It is neither.
The wrong choice was made by suspending common sense in banning the world's most useful and nutritious agricultural resource. Arbitrarily edited from the "free market" seventy-two years ago, Cannabis agriculture and knowledge of its true value was displaced by "Reefer Madness."
Prolonged, impose essential resource scarcity has led to economic insolvency, political corruption, radical disparity of wealth, and the brink of unstoppable synergistic collapse. If our species fails to shift values back into respect and appreciation for the Natural Order, by recognizing the true value of Cannabis agriculture, manufacture and trade, then the window of opportunity we may still have for healing this planet will silently shut long before we realize it's closed.
As insolvency sets in, crippling financial institutions and destroying the credibility of government, whether we realize it or not, people are being faced with the choice of either shifting values back to natural abundance or becoming extinct. It would seem an easy choice, except for the inertial thinking that defines the extinctionistic paradigm. As long as money is based in toxic commodities that are considered valuable, and organic agriculture remains crippled by erroneous valuation, then the direction of our evolution will remain locked on global extinction.
