The strength of the article lies in his observations about the essential nature of human beings and how this is incompatible with current social organization. He produces some real gems in the section, "What are we?". For example:
...tight community organization is an evolutionarily-engrained social construct of our species. And I think it is important to note here that this evolutionarily-mandated proclivity towards tight communities is the antithesis of the atomizing industrial social organizations increasingly being thrust upon us.But, once again like so many other observers of contemporary matters, he is unable to name the system which has prevented humans from realizing their potential--capitalism. He keeps using terms like "industrial", as if the mechanization of production powered by fossil fuels was the same as social organization. Is he merely playing it safe in a capitalist society that punishes critics of its system, or has he been brainwashed? In any case, until we identify the core problem, we will never find a solution.
