Many people recognize that humanity is in big trouble and can see the signs of what is to come. Climate change, drought and water scarcity, pollution, and the never-ending depletion of natural resources, are but a few of the serious conditions we have brought upon ourselves mostly over the last 100 years as a result of our capitalist system. The naysayers mock alternatives to capitalism and tell us that human ingenuity and the invisible hand of the free market will guide us and ultimately save us. But even the most vehement skeptics among us must accept that the endless consumption of natural resources on a finite planet is mathematically impossible. And to put faith in our ability to find new ways to get more and more out of the planet that supports us is just compounding the problem. We have a long history of technological advances which ultimately cause problems, leading us to use another technology to try and fix that problem, causing another problem that needs to be solved, and so on.
It is impossible to make the changes that are needed to the current system. Our politicians only care about their next term in office so cannot concern themselves with our long term future. Businesses are concerned only with their short term profitability and few have taken measures to be socially responsible, and our collective governments have been incapable of agreeing on any global steps to avert looming disasters such as the consequences of climate change. In short, we have no cooperation, no plan, and not enough time to figure our way out of this nightmare by changing the current system. The small actions we do take like pushing for more recycling, or offering energy-saving manufacturing incentives, or encouraging the use of renewable energy, are not only woefully inadequate compared to the challenges we face, but they need to be taken by the global population as a whole to have any noticeable affect, most of whom are unwilling or financially incapable of making the necessary sacrifices in their lives.
Unfortunately the bad news doesn't stop there because not only are people trapped in this hugely destructive system, but also our numbers are growing to compound the problem. The global human population continues to grow rapidly and it could easily exceed 9 billion by 2050. All those people want a lifestyle they see being enjoyed by people in the West, so the demand for more houses, more cars, more possessions, more meat, and more energy will skyrocket over the next few decades, causing more rain forests to be destroyed, more land to be developed, more pollution, more effects from climate change, and more demand for all natural resources.
Quite frankly it is literally a recipe for disaster, and the only possible way to change from our current doomed system of endless consumption to one of sustainability is to demonstrate that the benefits of such a system far outweigh any small sacrifices that might need to be taken. Once people can see that they can have a significantly better life than they have now, they will want it, then others will want it, and then we can transition from our current destructive way of living to a way that benefits all people, is fair to all people, and which is in harmony with the biosphere that supports all life.
Nutopia is being designed from the ground up so that all people are treated equally in every way, and who contribute equally so that the community thrives and all the needs of its people are met. There is no government or controlling body of people, it is the people as a whole who determine all aspects of the community. All of this is possible because the human flaws such as greed, envy, persecution, and corruption which have plagued all socioeconomic systems of the past and present are simply not possible. Nutopia is a system which literally saves people from themselves because for the first time in human history we have the technology to build a system which prevents us from harming the environment, lets us properly manages our natural resources, and ensures the long term well-being and survival of humanity.
