As protecting economic growth still takes precedent in global policy, the calls of scientists to change our system continue to be largely ignored. While crisis and collapse could result in economic gain for a few, for most people—especially the least responsible and most vulnerable people in the global majority—the outlook is far from good. Rather than an abrupt replacement of the current system, the notion of eroding suggests the system, and the ideologies that support it, can be weakened over time while alternatives are increased and become the new norm. Ideology usually refers to our underlying beliefs and worldviews that shape how we understand the world and interpret new information and ideas. However, ideology has also been used to describe ideas that are specifically used to conceal the truth. Indeed, people are unlikely to support political measures imposed upon them that they do not understand as necessary or beneficial.
