The entities who want to create and control a "police state" -- to either intentionally or inadvertently make excessive money for oligarchs -- are pushing a political ideology of fascism.
Often the oligarchs are domestic corporations (or cartels of corporations) that, like zombies, are for all practical purposes dead. They are dead and have no future; they cannot compete against the small innovators and "out of the box" thinkers who have recovered.
Any unsustainable practice (drilling oil, fracking gas, mining, to name a few) is by definition UNSUSTAINABLE. It is mathematically impossible to sustain an unsustainable business, no matter what side of the globe you're on.
Society can and should collectively oppose and dismantle those bankrupt bad ideas.
Fascists are angry and fearful.
They make help books for that.
@indie this is a tangent but I was at a national chain bookstore recently and all the "self-help" books were diet books.
Decolonize your thinking! Ecosteader is a network for sharing better ideas around designing, building, and innovating eco-friendly spaces on our shared soil. We collaborate and amplify the voices of all indigeneous peoples with "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) as we seek to build and participate in a better form of Ecological Democracy. Design lean, build green: compost for wildlife-friendly gardens, micro-homesteads, living walls not border walls, off-grid communities, recycled materials as artwork, and more. WATCH: Why America Must Change.
We are anti-Realtors, anti-landlords, and against corrupt RepubliKKKan politicians!
