Reason often only goes so far. Many can no longer achieve understanding. They are too biased in blinding worlds. Change means uncertainty. Uncertainty causes fear. So we avoid uncertainty and thus change.
In 1950, ethologist John Calhoun conducted experiments on the effects of overpopulation on the behavior of social animals (mice). All the mice ended up dead, no matter how many times Calhoun repeated the experiment.
What has me thinking is the similarities of Phase C of the experiments with our current world situation:
- Population densification
- Senseless aggression
- Collapse of gender roles
- Social withdrawal
Could total societal collapse mean the end of us?
Or can pandemics and wars shield us from it?
