GUEST,Sidewinder BS: Jared Diamond on Civilizations' Fate... (11) RE: BS: Jared Diamond on Civilizations' Fate... 02 Jan 05


Ain't it a drag when everyone agrees? At the heart of all this, there is the simple fact that throughout history the motivations of greed and power have far outwieghed any identifiable long/short term risks. And moves for multi or unilateral initiatives put forward for enhancement in any sphere of environmental, ecological or societal development are viewed as secondary issues because sustainable Domestic Economic Growth is the primary concern of every developed nation (we live in the now - i.e I want for nothing, my kids want for nothing, and beyond that I don't give a damn). In recent years moviegoers have seen on the big screen what will happen if we continue in the FMCS mode we are in, and even in graphic detail, it does not shock the masses from their apathy.

God Help Us All.

Sidewinder.
