What an astonishing documentary. I can picture a future where everyone drinks bottled water and migrates to safe zones because the rest of the world is wasteland. Bureaucracy has people so removed from the impact of their decisions. How can people willingly engage in activities they know are destroying people’s lives. The only rational explanation is they don’t value those lives. Personal profit trumps all. Power to subjugate is intoxicating. It seems hopeless that policy and attitudes of leadership will change enough to prevent a grim future. The people of the future will have to adapt.

Lost hope is what fuels a darker tomorrow. One must act as effectively as possible; and be open to realizing new possibilities. Everything is so tenuous. What can one do today to fulfill aspirations. Our fragile paradigm is malleable. Will one be ambitious or ineffective.
