What motivates the Londoners to change their lifestyle and what motivates the Californians to do the same in the 60's or 70's in order to solve their smog problems. What are the inner factors which enabled the change? What sort of mindset is needed in order to make the change and bring back the light that was blocked by the smog. If we want a clean energy environment like those we see in advance civilization (like Star Trek), we may need to allow our brains to evolve to a more advance state in order for them to be smart enough to innovate advance technology. The evolution of the brain requires a change in our mindset and behaviour.

So why does China replicate the worst the West has ever had, and not aim for the best straight away? ...

You mean like the mass murders? Another one today in the USA. At least 14 dead.
Or were you talking about the oppressive oligarchies that dominate the west?
Maybe going overseas to kill people who disagree with you is your favorite thing about the west.
But then, you've never moved out from your parents house so how would you know anything
about what goes on in this great big world of ours.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
