One of the strongest key factor in human history was Ideology (1). No matter what the ideology was all about, it was enough that people believed in it. The difference between ideology and religion is narrow one. Ideology does not have the same pretense as religion, which claims to have the answer to eternity. Ideology is more concerned with the Here and Yet. Religion as well as ideology promise their followers happiness and bliss. Fascists, Communists and other fan-clubs of spirituality or religion. You follow us now and the reward is waiting for you. Somewhere in eternity. And no matter, whether other people have to suffer in the quest of your religion or ideology to fulfillment.

Still an ideology, or a religion, is necessary as a tool to achieve something. Religion strives to teach people certain ethics and promises eternity, ideology wants to reach a goal, offers perspective and gives the tools how to achieve it. After the goals are achieved, the ideology is supposed to be abolished. Which, of course, does not happen voluntarily. In a political system where the ideology has outlived it’s purpose the ruling class is clinging to power and, mostly, can only be forced to step down by the use of violence. Of course, other examples also exist, like the fall of the communist block at the end of the 80th and now in the Arab world.

Ecology is a different kind of ideology. It does not promise it’s followerhappiness and bliss, it is about survival in a historic moment without parallel! Never before was humanity in such a situation as we are today. Today we know that a Climate Change is possible and we know that until the year 2050 world population will grow to 9 billion. In contrast to the 7 billion today. On the one hand world population grows and on the other hand every person wants to have as much as possible. We condemn our self to extinction.

In order to find a solution to this dillema a ecological ideology has to be developed. Sustainability is only part of the overall picture. Instead of growing, we have to learn how to restrain ourself. The more people live on earth, the less space and freedom the individual can have. The more nature is damaged, the more must be invested in nature to give her the chance to regenerate.

This is the only way to survival! The dream, that we will find refuge on Mars is just that, a dream. If we succeed to settle on Mars, we can be assured, that only a couple of million will find a place there. You and I won’t be among them! The better solution would be to develop a viable ecological ideology. The main task is to organize the time of transition as soft as possible. And when the time has come to throw it on the garbage heap of history, then this is what should be done.

    Throughout the great pattern of things you actually receive an A+ with regard to hard work. Where you lost us ended up being on the facts. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be much more accurate at this point. Having said that, permit me reveal to you precisely what did deliver the results. Your authoring is highly convincing and that is probably the reason why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, even though I can notice a leaps in reasoning you make, I am not necessarily convinced of just how you appear to connect the points which in turn make the conclusion. For the moment I will, no doubt yield to your position however trust in the near future you connect the dots much better.

    Ideology and blah blah blah.

    Listen up Dr. Max .

    You are living in a castle and we are starving here, why don’t you sell your mansion and your nightclubs and help people ?

    Shame on you and your money !! Don’t think because you are rich you are better than us, you are nothing, you are a ZERO.

    Your money will never buy you happiness, you will stay the miserable old man with your dollars mattresses and no friends who loves you.

    You will end up like Bernie Madoff !! Good advice when going to jail. Drop the soap in the shower, bend over to pick it up.

    Climate change, you are responsible for the climate change problems.

      Dear Dave,
      thank you very much to make a rich man out of me. I know it is still wishful thinking, but who knows, perhaps it will come true. Although, at my age I doubt it.

      • Dave

        When you die your millions is not gonna help you, you are filthy rich and stinky.

        Be a good person and donate some of your money !!!!!!

        • Admin (Max)

          that’s enough! You don’t know me, therefore you don’t know how much money I have. Believe me if I had as much as you believe I have, thee TOTEM System would exist already. And some other projects as well. So please refrain from insulting me.
