Time to Wake Up: Days of Abundant Resources and Falling Prices Are Over Forever

An essay by Jeremy Grantham, the Chief Investment Officer of GMO Capital cataloguing many of the issues related to resource depletion. Especially he highlights how even PhDs in mathematics fail to understand the unsustainability of this compound growth. In fact, if the Ancient Egyptians had started with only a cubic meter of physical possessions and maintained 4.5% compounded growth for 3,000 years it could not be squeezed into a billion of our Solar Systems!

It would also allow work to be shared more evenly across the available population, overcoming the anomaly of overwork for some and unemployment for others. More.

Hey Nonny No, No, No: Goths & Pagans Are Reinventing Morris Dancing

“We quite consciously work with ideas of shamanism,” says Kane, “It’s a form of ritual theatre, a magical space embracing both dancers and audience.” There are radical politics at work too: he sees the dance, and “neo-pagan carnivals” such as the Rochester Sweeps, as a way of resisting the “complacent nostalgia” of Englishness “founded on the detritus of imperialism, Christianity, racism and xenophobia”.
