A Troubled Millennial Generation

A solution from the Nag Hammadi Monastery in Egypt

A 29 Year Old Millennial challenges a 72 Year Old American President
During the interview with the press, by emphasizing the need for a Green New Deal, she pointed her finger in the President’s face and made it clear that we are the one species on this planet with the power to destroy all life on it ‑ and that is what we are doing.

Quote Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
“We must be as ambitious and innovative in our solution as possible,” Ocasio-Cortez declared during a press conference unveiling the Green New Deal resolution, which calls for a “national mobilization” to transition to 100 percent renewable energy by 2030. “We’re here to say that small, incremental policy solutions are not enough.”

Definition Green New Deal
Negative external costs were never a part of Adam Smith’s and then in the last century Milton Friedman’s Chicago School pricing equation, nor was recompense for ongoing irreparable ecological consequence. The Green New Deal calls for pricing recognition of all fossil fuel negative external costs. It also calls for incentives to pay for the replacement of these costs.

A Solution from The Gospel of Thomas found at Nag Hammadi
The Gospel of Thomas found in 1945 near the Nag Hammadi monastery in Upper Egypt speaks to our ecological crisis. It speaks directly to those of the Millennial Generation like US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It speaks to US President Donald Trump. It speaks to his anti-science enablers. It gives all of humankind the philosophical/theological framework we will need as we face the environmental challenges now confronting us.

The approach Jesus uses in the Gospel is: When he finds, he will become troubled. That is the reason I gave the lost Gospel a full chapter in my new book; to point out to the reader that today in the 21st century we will not find answers to our dilemma without first being troubled.
