Letter: Sustaining Earth and its ecosystems

Posted: May 13, 2014 - 12:00am

We must have more naturalist-EMT’s to sustain and maintain our Earth and its ecosystems. Things now are already on crisis-managed life-support.

Without patiently reviewing the didactic interrelationships between and amongst everything, an inter-disciplinary grasp can enable an awareness of the unifying connection between all. This will lead to a joyous awareness, to say the least. As a consequence, however, when intellectually ruminating on the tragedy of our climate conundrum, for any duration beyond an instance of thought-leveraging for tribulations unrelated, the sense of dread becomes unbearable.

Rectifying the narrowing of our future, precipitated in the privatization of our Commons— from essential human requisites like clean air and water resources to the denigration of our nutritional needs through dismemberment of the food-chain — instigated then buttressed by capitalism’s “profit-maximization” technique to innovate has become a challenge for our culture and the whole of our human condition, condemning us to the ideological verities of this narrowing Western Culture perspective. This also reinforces an educational system that condones a maturation-style that crystallizes the innate intolerance of an adolescent bigotry creating an adulthood of Machiavellian inter-personal relationships.

Hoping to educate my fellow human beings to the holistic interwoven connection between minutiae and magnificence has become the only recourse I have to alleviate this emotional burden. Then, because humanity is such a significant component in our Earth-system, sustainable civilization can only be achieved when individuals make private choices to abstain from the needless wasting of energized atomic constructions; those in both supplies of our usable energy reserves and of that which is retained in all fabricated matter, at every decision-making juncture in our lives.

For our children, this really should be the exemplary perspective making a truly liberal education, and its awareness of humanity, our top priority for any public policy. Privatized, market-defined institutions are the ruinous stifling of that awareness. The ecology of our environment can only be truly defended by an unbiased education; one with boundless opportunity constrained only by the laws of nature.

Every adjustment/change/fabrication private citizens or civil society’s make to, on, or in, the already maximally-efficient system of Earth, demeans — maybe even just incrementally —our Planet’s current living-standard (or quality-of-life) for all.

Some hope....

It is not readily obvious whether your awkward over-use of elevated vocabulary and grammar was intended to be pretentious or sarcastic. Either way, it does not flow smoothly.

However, there is a glimmer of hope embedded in the drivel of nonsense. You unmistakably acknowledge the existence of laws of nature. The next step in your enlightenment is to acknowledge that, for laws to exist, a law-giver must exist first.
