Excellent read. Up the talisman as Turing Testing for Solutionism! The systemic absence of any cultural enshrined running of corporate savior concepts through a rubric (to ferret out honest intention, to ask who benefits) is so absent as to almost be laughable if only the stakes weren't so high. Now with faux meat reconciling itself via carbon credits, the Steaks really are high, aren't they?

Really good piece. Since reading Dougald Hine's 'At Work in the Ruins' earlier this year, I've been noticing solutionism everywhere and I keep thinking about how what we have is not a problem but a predicament (I believe that is from John Michael Greer who I haven't read directly - yet). Culturally the solutionist approach is going to be a hard one to shift. I look forward to reading the documents you reference.
