    Sounds like Islam- conversion at the point of the sword. South America is the last bastion of Catholicism, and it is losing members to other religions. When the UN says that if we get rid of all religions, the world will be at peace, watch out. The end won’t be pretty.

    Telling people to buy less stuff is like telling a heroin addict to stop. Corporate greed knows no boundaries. Steffi is correct in this. Companies pay billions for ads because they work. A minimalist existence is little different from attempting to keep up with the Kardashians, and it can feel so empowering when the benefits become apparent. A person with a lot of possessions has to spend a lot of time maintaining them. But few will even make the attempt.

    ?
    .
    You tell me:
    .
    Man has pile of gold sitting at feet. Man sees another pile of gold sitting on ground stone’s throw away.
    .
    Man says, “No, I good. Pile of gold at feet is peachy. I leave other pile to birds.”
    .
    Or …does man try to stretch arms and hold both piles at once?

    Besides – what limit? If you control anything less than 100% there is always room to expand. Does Coke “back off” beating Pepsi’s face into mud just because it controls 90% of American domestic market? If average people drink 10 buckets of Coke soda a year in America, company will now advise “Whoa! Back off there! Six buckets is recommended!” Or they won’t try to entice consumers to “up” bucket level to 15?

    Better question, but less entertaining: what system of economics (or basic life-nature) does NOT encourage expansion? If you criticize capital for advancing, who do you applaud for not?
    .
    Who does not shoot for the low-hanging fruit?

    What it comes down to is that there are a certain group of people whose mind set will not allow them to change how the live. Especially if it means that their opposition is correct. They literally have their ideology controlling even to their detriment. And they will fight to the last man to make sure it never happens to them.

    It was still Capitalism in merchantilism and Empire. Though all that gold ruined the Spanish economy which helped it to fall apart later.

    That was Christianity at the point of a sword. Catholicism was an alien idea thrust upon the Indian nations of the Americas.

    We live in a finite world with a parasitical Capitalist ideology for infinite growth. It cannot be sustained. Fewer and fewer take more and more while more have less and less in its wake.

    Updating a power grid might be more involved than supposed.
    .
    Germany pushes ahead with windfarms, but hasn’t yet connected them to their grid and has no concrete plans to do so – even as they finish off building these new alternative power centers.
    .
    Managers of the American grid have complained about its age and the need to update for decades, regardless of other concerns. Commercial-scale renewables are being launched, but the grid can’t manage their variable output or reach their off-the-beaten-track locations. No concrete plans to change that, either.

    And really, how does a democratic politician sell this to the public without getting his head cut off?
    .
    “Uh, I wish to spend insane billions of public money building techie stuff in your backyard so you can get electricity in your house …. just like you do, right now, except your taxes will double. But, in compensation, the new wires running around your house will come in lemon-scented or “Springtime Fresh” flavors. Uh, and no, we don’t actually recommend that you try to sniff them; high voltage. Stay back. But it may cut the ozone a bit.”
