Sustainabilitism: Key Concepts
Principles of Sustainabilitism
1) Non-collapsibility: Sustainable practices minimize adverse ripple effects in the system. Consequently, such practices prevent disrupting other components of the system, the latter of which could lead to the breakdown of the system as a whole.
2) Utility: Sustainable practices promote global long-term well-being --- An effect which might not be immediately apparent in the beginning phases of the implementation.
3) Efficiency: Sustainable practices avoid unnecessary complexities. They tend to be fundamentally more efficient, without taking shortcuts that would otherwise jeopardize their utility.
Hiya! Some good news! While here at The Sustainabilitist we have been silently working behind the curtain on some blog-related chores (e.g., social media marketing, AdWords, Analytics, SEO, Link Building, legal matters, content research, new website) over the previous weeks, on April 27, 2015, we were pleasantly surprised to have received a spontaneous, Liebster Award nomination by Lane Stevens — of A Healthy Dose — totally out of the blue. Now, that’s quite something! Merci Infiniment Lane! We can’t thank you more!
“If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending,” Lincoln said, “we could better judge what to do.” Today’s answer to Lincoln’s charge is grim. If one looks at “where we are” among advanced democracies across more than a score of key indicators of national well-being—including relative poverty, inequality, education, social mobility, health, environment, militarization, democracy, and more—we find ourselves exactly where we don’t want to be: at or near the bottom.
