Capitalism, the Fourth Great Humility, will consume us all

Just now, I searched online for the Three Great Humiliations of humanity. There were many references to the Century of Humiliation in China, but it turns out Sigmund Freud coined the term.

They are:

1 the discovery by Copernicus and Galileo that we are not the centre of the universe;

2 Darwin’s discovery that we are descended from apes;

 3  Freud’s discovery that we are not in control of our minds.

The Fourth Great Humiliation of our species is upon us. We’re stuck on this beautiful blue gem in space and we’d better learn to live within its limits. If we do, we have a chance at peace, harmony and happiness. We also have a chance to reach a similarly livable planet in the galaxy in the distant future. If we don’t, our prospects are very grim indeed.
