idea of the real is one thing. The real is another.
Interesting to note the ambitious philosophers who have
chosen to consider Climate Change in terms of an Ethical
Dilemma. For those in doubt, Ethics is an attempt to be
thoughtful around the question of Good and Bad. Some
might argue it's a modeling of ideas that produce real
outcomes. If it wasn't for Luther, others might suggest,
there'd be no sin of poverty and one way or another we'd
all make it through the Eye of the Needle.
Your model train enthusiast and tender to Compost Piles
would prefer to think of the Dilemma posed by the Great
Minds in terms of the Rudeness of our Species. We are truly
obnoxious guests, worse than the Tasmanian Devil. Not sure
attempts to remove ourselves from the Dormobile of Earth and
set up camp on somewhere like Mars is actually the way to
go, except perhaps for the Disgustingly Wealthy. Keep in
mind mine is a purely Cave Dwelling Political Position which
holds that our species should have learned how to hibernate.
