Because the environment that supports
human civilization is rapidly collapsing,
the following three groups face critical choices.

The YOUNG

must make a
SURVIVAL decision:

Given that governments have failed to rationally address the ecological crisis,

DO YOU TRUST THEM TO
SALVAGE YOUR FUTURE?

If not, or if you have doubts,

The OLDER

must make an
ETHICAL decision:

Will you continue to support today's ecocidal social order because is serves your interests, or

If you choose to help the young,

The MILITARY

must decide about
its DUTY:

Your core responsibility is to safeguard the people. Will you remain loyal to society's ecocidal leaders, or

This manifesto is a militant declaration by the young that they will not be passively slaughtered by the ecological inaction of their leaders and elders.  Because this inaction is justified through a web of deceptions, the document identifies eight crucial lies and replaces them with their corresponding truths. Four core demands are then made: replace social leaders, implement solar radiation management, transform economies, and restore environmental health.

This document outlines my analysis of the ecological crisis and humankind's rational response.  It explains why and how this response was blocked, why revolutionary change is now necessary for survival, and how a youth-military strategy could achieve this end.  It also discusses the difficult transition from expansionary capitalism to a sustainable economy.

Our economies cannot be transformed without a new economic theory to direct the process.  The Economics of Needs and Limits, or ENL, is my proposed starting point for this theory.  The framework is based on an ethical principle and includes a set of concepts and analytical tools to establish rational economic objectives for the transition to a sustainable economy.
