Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Some say that the human nature is either to go up (learn, grow, advance) or to go down (slide, decline, weaken). A stationary phase is not appreciated.

With today's political economy, substantial growth is needed just to hide gaps between rentiers and the rest.

Let's go up in quality.
It does not have to be in quantity.

Also, don't confuse human nature and the West. Egypt was going mostly sideways for millennia.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
