Think of how many of the ancients use to think out the effects of their actions on future generations. The answer to "don't you care about your sons and daughters" or grandsons and granddaughters is a definite "NO!"
Do we see any viable world for our future generations through our fracking for gas, fighting ceaseless wars, driving species extinct at mind boggling rates, and standardizing everything from education to farming? All we want is short-term gains. Control and domination is our ethos. Freedom and a high quality life for our children and other future generations are thus damned!
Oh, yes, we are all on the corporate assembly line. We are being assembled into short-term goods for the short-term wellbeing of the wealthy few. How many times do we need to hear Bob Dylan's line from "Blowing in the Wind":
How many times can a man turn his head?
And pretend that he just doesn't see.
How many times, indeed, do we pretend not to see?
We do all this while knowing from science that Nature works on diversity in maintaining a healthy planet and NOT standardization as reflected in industry and corporate farming procedures. So, how many times must we submit to a standardized system of controlling the population on our planet and thus ourselves and our family?
Oh, where are the likes of Ramakrishna who sings of Nature:
More than Creator and Creation,
Mother is pure Creativity.
Yes, our Nature, all of Nature is Creativity. Nature is not a thing, but a process. She is a verb, more so than a noun. Drawing an analogy to quantum physics, nouns are the observed (named) particles; verbs are the unobserved (active) waves. For instance, the noun "work" as in "The work I do" specifies the inherent verb, "to work." The noun, "creativity" simply specifies the inherent verb, "to create".
