A startling percentage of the citizens of "the wealthiest nation on Earth" have what is now called food insecurity---many of them children. Is food a "right and not a privilege" ? Is anything ?
Wouldn't the goal of civilized creatures be win/win, by one means or another ? If entropy were nature's order, and Man declared himself superior to nature, wouldn't he make it his goal to supplant entropy with something finer ?
Civilization is the gradual removal of humans from the natural surroundings, and is therefore an affront to nature. No creatures have ever posed a threat to the survival of life on the planet other than humans. No other life form creates garbage that is not able to be broken down and recycled by one natural force or another, such as the dung beetle. If humans were ever to fade away into extinction, the health of the planet would improve immeasurably.
Nevertheless, I don't plan on going away without a fight.
