“The oil reserves were used to move
folks and homes to where we grow food.”
One hundred years ago there was the greatest migration the world has ever known, out of the cities and into the country.
After the revolutions and civil wars that plagued the oil producing nations of the world, it finally dawned on the people that it was the demand for oil that was the cause of their problems. At the same time due to extreme weather from burning fossil fuels, a green revolution of sustainability was sweeping through the oil demanding nations.
The oil producing nations decided only to sell enough for a seven year transition from oil dependence to self-sufficiency. Most of the world's nations have reserves so all the dangerous offshore oil wells were plugged first. This was accepted by all nations as the only solution to the world's problems.
It became clear that cities could only be sustainable by reducing their size by having a small elite and a large majority of people living in servitude. This was not acceptable, so it was accepted that we can have a high tech society without disposable consumerism that cities use to fuel their endless growth. Acceptance was a Godsend because migration without acceptance always has terrible consequences.
A plan was put in place to end the current capitalist system as it was not equipped to deal with such a massive undertaking as there was no way to direct enough money to where it was needed and with oil being used only for essential services, the economy was going to collapse anyway.
This was seen as an opportunity for the whole world to come together in a whole new way of organisation without money and nations. One based on cooperation not competition, making not taking, sharing, caring and love and understanding with trust in each other.
