Human society has always followed the pyramid principle, though the problem with pyramids is that the top is so far from the base it often doesn’t know what’s going on with its foundations. In the past this never mattered with the human race being at the top of the natural ladder because as the foundations of one city of civilisation crumbled the pyramid moved on to another party of the world or another forest ready to be hacked down.
So resolute were the rulers at the top of the pyramid that the structure has managed to service until today with no one interested that those at the top lack all knowledge of what the foundations are going through. But now the foundations do not just encompass a country or a continent but the entire world. As our foundations crumble there is nowhere to move on to. For the land left that can sustain food will not be shared by those who govern it and those without it will do what humans always do – go to war to steal it.
Whatever comes out of the remnants of the debacle one thing will remain clear – the pyramid structure will be kept, because although human beings have always had somewhere to physically go in the past they have never had anywhere to go with the way they think.
