Thanks for the kind words. Your take is interesting but I hope that is not the result of this bifurcation although it is certainly possible. I see this as a necessary change to handle complex, nonlinear planetary issues. Those are now at a level that very few people can grasp. Our revolutionary tools are still focused on pattern matching and tribal manipulation or management, if you prefer.

There are enough people, perhaps a plurality, who now realize this and are, frightened, anxious, and depressed at the percentage unable to recognize our weaknesses. That so many are adrift and grabbing at illusions offered by opportunists is not a new situations but its implications are new and deadly.

This is the kind of change that we cannot force on people. Enough need to see the need to be able to shift our path for the future. That creates the situation where everyone talks but can't seem to do anything while the age old tribal instincts provide the old answers. But we cannot be fully tribal anymore.
