So #postcapitalism has one major flaw. It's capitalistic. That won't work.

We need to create a more balanced world, a more sustainable and collaborative model for survival on this planet of ours.

The concept of value has to be re-thought in ways we yet haven't imagined.

Where can we start before we end up in the global trash can?

Most likely with ourselves. As always. We need to transform our own minds on a very basic level, before any new system can evolve. It's a simple proposition but yet the toughest challenge we face.

Abandoning our ego and personal needs and putting others first is an excruciating task for any individual inhabiting our planet. But it's the only way forward. #neohumanism
The neoliberalist capitalist model has resulted in civil wars and economic disaster, and it’s only going to get worse

The question of China's economy imploding further down the line is becoming more and more a question of how long, rather than if.

The financial crash of 2008 would likely dwarf in comparison.

Naturally this occurring development rapidly will add fuel to the fire to the notion of the failing European project.

No need to even mention the U.S since it's built on greed as it's only viable currency.

Look to Russia to see the effects of lack of leadership, where fear is built in to it's trading mechanism.

Rapidly failing economies on a global scale impact the ecosystem of our planet in a way that speed up it's already fragile balance in the few places it still survives.

We have already borrowed resources from our planet that we cannot repay or restore - and we have economical systems which increase our environmental debt at a rate of unimaginable speed and scale.

- And yet, can you imagine, it seem like the majority of people are either not prepared or tellingly unable to even slightly change behavior or mindset in favor of the planet that feed and shelter them?

- Hailing humans as an intelligent species inhabiting planet earth seemingly appear like an incredibly uneducated proposal to suggest.

The debt we build up, economically and environmentally, can never be written off.

We will never be able to live with the debt that the systems we've created amass. Neither will we be able to live with ourselves, or anyone else for that matter.

That's how brave and mature the species called humans have become during the short period we've existed on our planet.

How brave and mature is it to wage war, to destroy, build up debt and make everyone around us suffer?

Sorry to seem so negative, but I just had to get this of my chest. Now time for a new bright and sunny day.

Let's consume everyone!

Swedish Preciousness — at Lilla Bullerbyn, Järna, Sweden.

There is nothing, nothing that compares to a Swedish summer when you locate it's natural habitats and 'smultronställen'. Nothing.

Great photo +Jan Friman and while we do have some beautiful spots here in New Jersey, I'm quite certain that the crisp clear air, that I see in your photo, is not present here:)  I can almost smell the freshness of the field.
+John Kellden Good catch - I see a side view of his face, eyebrow, eye and nose...very cool
