A great reflection about what we are doing with our world.
It is about our overheated lifestyle and needs. It is about crossing the limits. About debt and more debt.

The video is from Richard Heinberg, accompanying his book The End of Growth. He don’t give a solution, he give an analysis about our current situation with some historic perspective.
