Hmm - I really dont like how that growth in the city goes up exponentially (including crime rates and pollution it seems). And the speaker even thinks this is a good thing. At least he recognizes that the usual way this ends is collapse because the threadmill eventually gets too fast.
Know your idols: Who said "Hitler killed five million Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher's knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs.". (Solution: "Mahatma" Ghandi)

"Humans are storytellers. These stories then can become our reality. Only when we loose ourselves in the stories they have the power to control us. Our culture got lost in the wrong story, a story of death and defeat, of opression and control, of separation and competition. We need a new story!"
