that it is better,
that it is a sign of success,
the greatest source of power
The truth is, we don't know that these claims are true. We have not tried to accomplish what big things do in a small or smaller way. It is urgent to humanity and to the life on this planet that we start trying to develop ways to build things traditionally built by massive companies by using small companies working together.
We need to develop new kinds of government that are decentralized and local, so government does not get too big and too out of control.
Why do we need to get small? Why is big a problem?
Big is top-down and all that means.
Big intensifies and potentiates psychopathic tendencies and behaviors
Big is selfish and feels self-entitled
Big parasitizes the commons taking far more than its share or what it pays or compensates for
Big is highly destructive to the environment and is a major cause of the massive species die-off the earth is currently experiencing
Big economizes by engaging in monoculture and analogous diversity diminishing behaviors and policies
Big buys power and influence, disrupting democracy and justice
