Again, the crucial feature of the coming feudalism will be an end to economic progress. There may even be economic retrogression, a return to general poverty and primitivism (paradoxically enforced through sophisticated technological means).
If economic development results in “climate change” and harms rather than benefits society or the Earth Mother, how can it be allowed? Individual business activity that is the only cause of improvement in economic conditions would have to be checked at the source, namely, by eliminating individual freedom.
If society is a zero- or even negative-sum game, the case for liberty is seriously weakened.
This is a logical development of the doctrine of irreconcilable conflicts of interests between people, of enmity between individual liberty and the common good, that all but defined the 20th century thought.
