The Fate of Humanity is Already Decided

Ishi Nobu Author Interview

The Story of Humanity: Ecology & Consequence follows the natural history of humanity, from emergence to demise, and provides readers with a saga of misadventure from a remarkably adaptable creature. What inspired you to write this book?

I am long a student of history. All of my Spokes books are laden with history stories. I wanted to encompass humanity’s experience as a creature with a destiny, addressing in holistic perspective the how & why of that destiny.

What is a common misconception you feel people have about technology today?

While appearing to many as a boon, technology has proven a detriment to humanity’s survival. One of my favorite quotes in The Story of Humanity: Ecology & Consequence is by British war commander & prime minister Winston Churchill: “What might now shower immeasurable material blessings upon mankind may bring about its total destruction.”

What were some ideas that were important for you to share in this book?

Humans are an ape in thrall to tools. Rather than exercise prudence & discipline – and learn from the wise among us, the Collective of humanity have blithely followed their biological urges. Women were key to humanity’s wellbeing. Their subjection sorely dimmed the prospects of societies in the areas of education, economics, the arts, justice, and social balance. Rather than cooperate, man’s inclination to individualism, materialism, and dominance of others have been the powerful forces which set humanity’s destiny. As I wrote in The Story of Humanity: “Though taken as natural, the original sin of men was laying claim to what belonged to all. The idea of ‘owning’ Nature ultimately doomed humanity.” As a political economy and cultural folkway, plutocracy has been the kiss of death.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your book?

The major takeaway to The Story of Humanity: Ecology & Consequence is that the fate of humanity is already decided. The end times now are simply a culmination of world civilization. There is no possibility of hurriedly altering that vector.
