  •  capitalism needs to die instead (3+ / 0-)

    Production and consumption for their own sakes need to end.  There need to be a lot fewer humans running around eating and crapping, and in the near future, there will be; the only question is whether or not the decline is voluntary or not.

    What am I saying?  Kiss the planet goodbye; all things shall live and die for the sake of the rich ... especially die.

    Something's wrong when the bad guys are the utopian ones.

    •  It will. Nature never loses. (7+ / 0-)

      The planet will kill capitalism, but it will do so the way nature always works; with utter disregard for life. Evolution, culture, even life itself, is about killing (culling?) the things that don't work to leave space for another aggressive, curious, or adventurous impulse to develop. That basic truth holds true from bacteria to economic systems.

      It just sucks for all the living things killed during that whole process.
      The fact that we have awareness of this and still cannot act is the failing that may well cost us a great shot at species immortality; the ultimate goal of life.
