To Save Civlisation Creativity Must Triumph Over Conformity

The Daily Stirrer contributors have long argued that the baying pack of science fans all screaming that science and science alone has all the answers to our current crop of problems are barking up the wrong tree. We contend that not only does science not have the answers, scientists don’t even understand the question.

For quite a long time it felt as if we were talking into the void but more and more we see other people are getting the message too. Science is not the answer, it is the problem.

To get out of the mess we are in we need to look at our situation from a completely different perspective and understand that technological advances are not the same thing as progress.

Creativity Must Triumph Over Conformity

In this article Bruce Elkin argues that to save civilisation creativity must triumph over conformity. We must kick our addiction to consumption, rediscover the things that are really important and use the unique abilities of humans to create a society in which fullfillment is the goal rather than wealth and power. In other words we must redefine what we mean by success.
