THE PLANETARY CRISIS…ECOLOGICAL WELTSCHMERZ

There is a dark but clear vision possible in the current moment.  Evolution of our species may have out-run our capabilities.  We have met the enemy and he is us.  You can dream of moving to another planet, but if that even were to become feasible, the rich and powerful will take only the rich and powerful…and the most useful robots.

In England the man-made crises are more evident, more damaging to everyday existence and perhaps irreversible.  A new anti-civilization-as-we-know-it discussion has begun there…and the people who partake of the Dark Mountain self-examination have deep intellectual debts to some Americans…like Robinson Jeffers, the California poet with his wise questioning of  man’s urge to destroy.
