World Population at 8 a.m., Fri, Oct 20 2017 in California was
7 billion, 804 million, 661 thousand, 743

well past the "tipping point" and still exploding toward
OVER 8 BILLION BY 2020

    Any date : A  never-ending cover-up  by media loyal to their rich,  GROWTH  loving owners may fool you, but, certainly due to endless GROWTH of human POPULATION, habitat, business, and dependence on excess and often toxic technology - the eco-system we CAN'T live without is NOW collapsing.
   Q: So why is the GRAVITY, EXTENT and CAUSE of this crisis being covered up?   A: Continued profit flow depends on continued GROWTH and the insiders who run the world don't want you to think about stopping GROWTH, no matter what it does to the world we live in. SO, WHILE OUR ECO-WORLD COLLAPSES, nothing is being done about it, and no politician, media chief, or scientist has the wit or courage to talk about anything but the weather.
   Our entire eco-world is CERTAINLY COLLAPSING NOW BECAUSE OF TOXIC OVERGROWTH.   We're NOW adding hundreds of people a minute, hundreds of thousands a day, a million every three days, and OVER a billion a decade, and THAT GROWTH ITSELF GOES ON GROWING, in spite of the con- venient 1992 metaphysical fantasies of embedded "scientists" about IRRELEVANT PERCENTAGE growth rates,   because REAL human NUMBERS keep going up faster from a REALLY EVER-GROWING NUMERICAL BASE, as do the consequences.  Current buzz references to "climate change," may be more than language abuse, but they're only about symptoms.

This site has changed. Since '04 a news journal "licensing" my trips to Cuba (it still does), it is NOW A GUIDE TO REALISTIC THOUGHT - A COMPASS NEEDLE - a  PPS, (philosophical positioning system) - setting forth the comprehensive view of reality that would-be proressives, with the inclination and courage to save their own eco-world (if there are any) MUST learn and start talking about and acting on NOW or never.

Diplomatic Grey (an important preface to: From Infinity To Here)

    Just as any compromise between black and white will give you grey; and any compromise between grey and either black or white will give you grey, too; and any compromise between grey and grey will also give you grey - any diplomatic compromise between truth and denial will get you the same old grey chaos of self deception.
    Of course there are times when truth seems to matter less than the smooth flow of human relationships, such as the famous occasion when Becky Thatcher tore a page in the teacher's prized anatomy book and Tom Sawyer told his heroic "white lie" and bore her punishment for her, and there are even truths that are better kept to oneself, such as the price of art - or even, sometimes, the depth of an innocently dropped insult.
    But when denial and deception, including even apparently trivial compromises, lubricate the path to barbarism, or, small as each separate lie may be, add up to a smoke screen behind which important truths are lost or the insidiousness of popular lies is hidden, then to keep what traction I've got on the pathway of truth that probably won't but could lead toward civilization, or, if that's vain, to at least protect the integrity of my philosophy and my credibility to myself, I prefer not to compromise the truth with diplomatic grey.

2004: SOUTH AMERICA COMPARED TO CUBA:
In the summer and fall of '04, already familiar with Mexico and Central America and, to some extent, with Cuba, I toured eight South American countries, to more effectively continue comparing what American media were then calling the "emerging western style free enterprise democracies" to Cuba, which those same not-very-free media always dutifully called "the only country in the hemisphere still not free." Since then, in a story blacked out for Americans by their not-very-free media, most of those countries, refusing to go on being arm-twisted by the US into censuring Cuba, are now beginning to follow Cuba's lead away from the US business-oriented government model toward "socially oriented" government. But in 2004, I learned more certainly what I already knew, that it should have been Cuba censuring the countries I was visiting, since, in 2004 (though, thanks initially to Hugo Chavez, things are now slowly changing), only Cuba was free then of the oppressive attributes I found everywhere else in Latin America.
