Jason Hickel brings a new word for human progress i.e Degrowth, since the beginning man has been trying to increase the growth rate and now he needs the opposite. For the increase in money, man has destroyed nature and the natural resources a great deal. Destruction has not remained to one category rather the whole life cycle faced its impact.
The world that was once an ideal place to live is not that ideal anymore for humans. Although we have improved a lot in different fields and have tried to make our life luxurious at the same time it has made the condition of our surroundings worse. Leaving all the economic growth and closing down most of the factories is the way suggested by many to improve the situation. Even if the suggestions are correct the question is whether such steps are possible to take. If these steps are taken there would be joblessness and hunger everywhere.
Moreover, most of the people would not be ready to go back to that primitive life when there was no internet and factories to produce luxuries. Also, there would be no competition left for the people, progress would be non-existent which would cause certain health issues too. In a nutshell life on earth is going to be tougher in the years to come whether we go in one way or the other.
Ben Crystal and Clifford Samuel have narrated this book, for some people one narrator was ample for this stuff but with two there came a good variety in it. The Divide by Jason had such philosophies in it and here to the author has raised many important points. The way suggested by Jason is not totally applicable although it seems to be the only way.
