Sustainability (23/10/19 13:10:54)
    It's a buzzword, and the reactionaries hate it. The progressives shy away from defining it. I think sustainability must be defined with a view to the result: a planet where people live in peace and prosperity together and towards the organic and inorganic world, and in which all plans of destructive activities are balanced by a plan for repair.
    We should be there in 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000, 5000 years, and we must start before we have runaway thawing of the tundras and devastating flooding of the oceans with meltwater from arctic and antarctic glaciers.

    Zero-growth of human population will be necessary. We need to break the unholy alliance of religion and power building: The earth is full (that's to the religious). Breeding for the sake of cannon fodder is just cruel (that's to the politicians).

    So: Abortion, contraception, same-sex marriages, masturbation must be acceptable everywhere. Mifepristone and misoprostol must be available without prescription at no cost or just a nominal cost in all countries, and women of all ages, not just reproductive age, must be allowed to buy them.

    It will be a struggle. The first step would be to finance ramping up of production of the abortion drugs.
