July 15, 2047

Everyone’s talking about this throwback Communist/Confucian-inspired #OneAll meme coming out of China ... even Lil who rarely gets chatty about politics is all excited.

The idea is that the four + billion of us left should adopt a new principle to live by – not based on individual rights but on individual responsibility – that no one should have a footprint greater than another.

So in this new world, you can still aspire to greatness, accumulate a widely admired persona ... you can get all the acoolades, have a billion followers, be a cultural icon, even a world leader if that’s your destiny ... but you canntot consume more than anyone else.

Your planetary impact cannot exceed that of a single other.

The pre-crash dinosaurs hate this idea ... but it’s gone viral in a big way, becoming one of the founding principles of our bio-region ... maybe it will inspire a whole new global order!

Continue with us on the journey to 2047 ... stay tuned for the final chapter ... Doom Diary #14!
