The Neo-Puritans – Goose Egg, The HOGS – ONE!
by B Wook
To zero in on the business-opportunities obviously ALSO inherent in major climate change is certainly AT LEAST as much a possibility as anybody seriously “thinking” that “all of a sudden” WE are to make a leap “all at once” of several (!) orders of magnitude in The Joy Of Telling OTHER People What To Do.
In any case, following up on such an angle as profitability can only help us all to attain to a more-nuanced view that takes into account BOTH Possibility as well as Catastrophe!
My sense, in any case, is that SOMEBODY in the capitalist & corporate ranks eventually WILL sink some of the profits into very possibly moving the whole arena of Life from this crude molecular & biological scale into some new dimension or ensemble of dimensions.
But no matter how we cut it, the proclaimed Purpose of the remnant late-modern Old Professional Order in its rather-predictable AND pretty worn-out call for MORE (you guessed it!) laws IS rooted in a pretty undignified sort of UNCONSCIOUS Motive — namely to “keep things from changing!”
And so an exclusively “regulatory” gambit is pretty gauzy cover altogether for an ill-disguised New Reactionary movement that, at least when taken by itself, offers less than no Hope at all, perhaps.
