Letting events take their course sometimes is the better option.
I decided against writing to my local UK Member of Parliament today about a political issue, instead I chose to step back and let events take their course. In recent weeks there has been in the media reports of an upsurge in social and political protest, be it in Brazil to Turkey, whilst daily further revelations emerge of the degree of monitoring that world governments in concert with each other and the corporates such as Facebook have been inflicting on their citizens.
All world leaders without exception rather than be bridges to prosperity of their people act like a metaphorical parasitic varroa mite sucking the life out of the bee, in their case the people they fail to steward. To maintain such a self-serving position world leaders use command and control techniques incorporating restriction, manipulation and monitoring. To see what happens when these leaders indulge in command and control is to understand a few scientific principles.
The nature of energy is motion. The universe we exist in has pattern and order thanks to energy systems, without which we would be destroyed by entropy. These energy systems are under constant attack by entropy, which counter-act entropy through a destruction-renewal cycle that requires the free flow of energy in and out of those energy systems. Restricted or blocked energy from an energy system causes entropy to engulf the energy system, leading to disorder and breakdown into simpler chaotic systems.
Noting the above science, when you realise our political, social and economic systems are energy systems, it should make sense why we have the events as evident in Turkey, Syria and Brazil. Our hubristic, ignorant and controlling world leaders use command and control of our social, political and economic systems we depend upon for civilisation, which restricts, even blocks, the flow of energy, undermining the destruction-renewal process, causing the anarchy that is now observable. Ironically the world leaders react to the chaos with more command and control, paradoxically causing worse disordered outcomes.
At some point I hope that these world leaders get a flash of enlightenment that command and control is a doomed strategy, until then I must step back and watch as social, political and economic systems collapse into chaos. In reality our social, political and economic systems are expendable, but our environmental systems are critical life support systems, thus my limited resources go to protecting bees, trees and food diversity.
