Leunig is a brilliant political cartoon artist that is able to explain complex concepts in a few short panels.
I believe that this set of panels addresses the thought that so often our society continues practices that we know are self-destructive. This can carry on at all levels be they government practices, consumerism or industry.
I personally feel that this is something that is targeted towards us as individuals and illustrates one of the primary concepts that provides the momentum behind Whole Systems Change, that if we instead of blindly continuing on doing the same thing we ever done actually question those practices and decide to try something different that we could extend the lifespan of our resources and society.
