Emergency stop 2069 – The world in a hundred years

Ilustration Susanne Gold, Story Sue Doma

After mankind had wiped out and destroyed almost everything that was alive and essential for survival by the year 2069, an abrupt change of all nations and countries set in motion.

Today, in the year 2119, everyone now has the same amount of food available. Money as a means of payment was completely abolished.

It simply survived because it was finally understood how sick and life-shortening this constant greed for more – higher, faster, further and power is. Nobody has to work anymore. Instead, everyone volunteers to do what they can do best for the community and according to their abilities. Everybody understood that there would have been almost no more earth if the 2069 – emergency stop had not happened.

Today everyone has the same: food and space – all people live in tiny houses with about 50 square meters and a garden twice as big.

Good air and healthy, naturally grown food are as natural as permaculture. That alone is enough daily work for every inhabitant of the earth.

Animals have not been eaten for a long time, but are equal partners.

Sheep, for example, are the lawn mowers and pets help better today than any psychotropic drugs did a hundred years ago. Things that animals do are appreciated and used – but – without considering the animals as subjects and exploiting them.

Today there are almost all species again. Since 2069 -emergency stop – all living creatures that were threatened with extinction have been saved. Today, there are no cars, electric vehicles or airplanes, nor anything that could produce a lousy ecological footprint. Everyone is happy where they live. No more travel to every corner of the earth.

My great-grandchildren witnessed that the earth was almost uninhabitable

They pass this memory on as knowledge and warning. It should never happen again, so that my great-great-great-grandchildren still have an earth worth living on.

This sounds like a journey into the past – but why shouldn’t this be our future?
