A global consciousness is in the making, via the internet.

This video explains a theory of how consciousness develops in the brain as different clusters of neurons make connections and assume control. It is this fight for control that eventually leads to consciousness.

As people around the world continue to connect, form new relationships, learn of the realities of the world, and their relation to it. How will we use this new technology to organize and assert control that finally favors our interests?
"Are we perhaps living in a time when leaderless groups can flourish thanks to the open-source, peer-to-peer sharing, social networking wonders we enjoy? With cheap, instant communication and vast amounts of information at our fingertips, could we run a society without a ruling hierarchy?"

Not everyone's interests are alike.

Of course not, but we do share a common interest in the preservation of our species and our planet. The way society is organized at present does not follow those interests.

Never has our species has less violence then today. Contrary to popular belief, our air and water has gotten cleaner then it was decades ago:

Oh and over logging is also false. 9:45 the amount of forests has been at steady state since the 20th century, and even increased since 1920.

Is our system perfect, no. But removing capitalism and Marxism will not work. The Soviet Union was well known for their environmental abuses.

"The global output of heat-trapping carbon dioxide jumped by the biggest amount on record, the US department of energy has calculated, in a sign of how weak the world's efforts have been at slowing man-made global warming.

The new figures for 2010 mean that levels of greenhouse gases are higher than the worst case scenario outlined by climate experts just four years ago."

Global warming is not anthropogenically caused and does not need any anthropogenic intervention.
