The Laughing Hyena

i have been following your blog for a couple of months now. i agree to about everything you have written over here. it is quite creepy that the chain of thought you have been following is quite similar to my own.

my own search for the truth started a few years back and the first question i had was quite simple actually... are we really advancing as a civilization if so then why do i see people around me so stressed out?

coming to the present the reality is now growing that our unavoidable demise is happening sooner than later and infact accelerating as we speak.

the anology to the submarine in one of your initial posts i think captures the moment quite entierly.

Thanks for the comment. At some time in the not-too-distant future I intend to start a social network of like-minded people to form a support group for thinking about what to do about all of this.

Look for the announcement and hope to see you there.



This is a lucid summary of the population problem.
My impression is that population is a taboo subject in most circles.
Combine that with the Growth is Good attitude and you have a society sleep walking to disaster.
I find your articles very informative,George.


There is a growing number of people out there that think alike, I know of people being concerned about population growth already in the '70s and '80s.

So the population issue is not new. Given the current population numbers, this indicates that humanity indeed does not have the courage to act on it. It is highly questionable whether this will change in the near future.
