  •  Time to dust off my beloved Bob Dylan lyrics (13+ / 0-)

    We are headed towards another massive cultural and economic paradigm shift.

    Because something is happening here
    But you don't know what it is
    Do you, Mister Jones ?

        I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s brother no more
        No, I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s brother no more
        Well, he hands you a nickel
        He hands you a dime
        He asks you with a grin
        If you’re havin’ a good time
        Then he fines you every time you slam the door
        I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s brother no more

        For What It's Worth
        by Buffalo Springfield

        There's something happening here
        What it is ain't exactly clear
        There's a man with a gun over there
        Telling me I got to beware
        I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
        Everybody look what's going down

        There's battle lines being drawn
        Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
        Young people speaking their minds
        Getting so much resistance from behind
        I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
        Everybody look what's going down

        What a field-day for the heat
        A thousand people in the street
        Singing songs and carrying signs
        Mostly say, hooray for our side
        It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
        Everybody look what's going down

        Paranoia strikes deep
        Into your life it will creep
        It starts when you're always afraid
        You step out of line, the man come and take you away

        We better stop, hey, what's that sound
        Everybody look what's going down
        Stop, hey, what's that sound
        Everybody look what's going down
        Stop, now, what's that sound
        Everybody look what's going down
        Stop, children, what's that sound
        Everybody look what's going down

    •  The shift will be driven in part by climate (6+ / 0-)

      change and peak everything. We live in a finite biological world and that will have its way as a major forcing factor. That will necessarily push us toward a more cooperative frame of mind and behavior. We will have to develop better ways of cooperating more with the environment and with each other as we get forced into a smaller ecological niche. There will also be fighting for diminishing resources.
