The irony, as I see it, is that the linear construct is proving the veracity of the mythos of the oroborus.
I find it virtually impossible to consider the dynamics and consequences of activities under the predatory construct commonly called capitalism, as asserted by the Milton Friedmans and their get, without looking at the concept of “externalized costs” as being the toxic vortex sucking everything into its extinction spin.
The system now, in practice, is nothing more than capitalism consuming itself based on its predatory elements, which has hit the wall (peoples are waking up to it; ecologically it has been poisoning the planet and eliminating/externalizing/denying all methods for societal equilibrium centered on preventing such ABUSES, etc…) and the latest symptoms in the Drumph vortex are a terrific mirror for downloading points to add to the litany.
The most egregious phase having been introduced to sacrifice the entirety of society. This comes back full circle to the dehumanization of non-Christian peoples as used during colonization by Church and European Crown families in what is today called the Doctrine of Discovery.
We fail to recognize at our own peril how this has been continuously updated in the legal legal system and how it has, for centuries, undermined societal integrity. The converse of course being that it serves as a horizon of coherence moving forward.
