Put simply: Ecological Illiteracy can be summarized as an individuals intellectual failure to recognize and/or egological illiterate inability to cognitively confront one or more Ecology of Peace Factual Reality principles.
Ecology of Peace Radical Honoursty Factual Reality:
- Earth is not flat.
- Resources are finite.
- When humans breed or consume above ecological carrying capacity limits, it results in ecological overshoot, resource depletion and resource conflict.
- Some of the socio-cultural and psycho-political consequences of overpopulation & consumption collision with declining resources include: poverty, slavery, unemployment, food shortages, food inflation, cost of living increases, urban sprawl, traffic jams, toxic waste, pollution, peak oil, peak water, peak food, peak population, species extinction, loss of biodiversity, peak resources, racial, religious, class, gender resource war conflict, militarized police, psycho-social and cultural conformity pressures on free speech, etc; inter-cultural conflict; legal, political and corporate corruption, etc.
- The root cause of humans breeding and consuming above ecological carrying capacity limits is the ‘right to breed and consume with total disregard for ecological carrying capacity limits’ clauses of the Masonic War is Peace international law social contract.
- If individuals, families, tribes, races, religions, political parties, corporations and/or nations sincerely – aka egological literacy – want to (a) sustainably protect natural resources for future generations; and/or (b) reduce class, racial and/or religious local, national and international resource war conflict; and/or (c) enable honourable, transparent and humane international cooperative de-industrialization and depopulation of the planet to return to living in accordance to ecological carrying capacity limits; they should (d) cooperate to nullify the ‘right to breed and consume with total disregard for ecological carrying capacity limits’ clauses and replace them with Ecology of Peace clauses that restricts all the worlds citizens to breed and consume below ecological carrying capacity limits; or be humanely eliminated from the planetary genepool.
Egological Literacy can be practiced by adopting an honourable discourse communication policy; based upon honesty and evidence; not only under oath in a court of law; but all hours of every day; with everyone; whether they are perceived as friends or enemies.
Egological Literate Honourable Discourse:
If you are committed to honourable discourse; and you are still giving an individual you are relating to the the benefit of the doubt that they are committed to honourable truthseeking discussion:
Clarify your preferences; to enable people being communicated to, to clearly know what you want; and whether they are willing to engage you in entering into an agreement; to help you get what you want; and reciprocally whether you can help them to get what they may want.
Always respond to verbal and written correspondence: from honourable communicators, with a sincere honest response. If you don’t have time to respond; inform them by when they can expect a response.
You sincerely and actively listen to the evidence from any individual, irrespective of their political ideology (right wing to left wing), religion, race or culture. Active listening means you verify that your interpretation of their statements is accurate; before concluding that you have ‘heard their argument’.
You focus on simplifying the issue discussed, using as much as possible descriptive words; as opposed to abstract concepts. If or where you do use abstract concepts; you are willing to define your meaning of that abstract concept within that circumstance.
You evaluate their argument based upon the evidence they present, not their race, religion or political ideology; etc.
If you are not convinced by the quality of their evidence on any particular issue; you are willing to agree to disagree on that particular issue, and if they are wiling to engage in cooperative truthseeking to get better evidence so that you are both able to get more quality evidence; so that a stronger beyond reasonable doubt conclusion can be drawn on the particular issue in dispute.
You remain in the conversation until you find agreement; and support each other on other issues that you do agree upon; based upon more conclusive buck stops here evidence.
If conflict sincerely arises in the discussion about the issue, you are committed to remaining in the conversation and finding a way to resolve the conflict, by allowing yourselves to get over your anger; as opposed to requiring yourself or others to suppress their anger for political correct ‘lets pretend we are getting along’ reasons.
If or where sincere conflict arises: if sincere about resolving the disagreement; engage each other to find a fair ‘buck stops here’ arbitrator; whose arbitration values are based upon the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, based upon the evidence, the whole evidence and nothing but the evidence. Once the emotional steam has been released through the conflict resolution process; both parties will find themselves in a more calm neutral space where the truthseeking conversation can proceed.
If at any point during discussion; or arbitration proceedings; their evidence proves any of your evidence for any of your ideological, racial or religious working hypothesis theories or beliefs to be inaccurate; you love reason and logic more than your ego-identity and hence you are willing to publicly change your mind, on that particular subject and amend your ideological working hypothesis or belief with the new evidence provided; and if necessary to apologize.
