NYT: “Do We Need to Shrink the Economy to Stop Climate Change?”

It sounds crazy – yes it does. But comparing the regrowth movement to the genocidal Khmer Rouge in Cambodia is only appropriate. Human nature dictates that we are not the perfect human robots that some want us to become. Let me offer another, even crazier comparison. The Borg from the Star Trek series. A hive mind where individuality is completely erased for the benefit of the whole. In the end, it’s always the benefit of the leaders. The planet cannot sustain 8 billion people if we all live with what nature gives us. Who will decide how many shall live and who it will be?
