They know you know, and are waiting for you "Reactionaries" to, er, react.
But did you realize that they've been practicing being openly brazen for years? It's just that nobody noticed?
Well, I'm sure you're going to love this one. It's from the Society for Philosophy and Technology, Spring-Summer 1997, Volume 2, Number 3-4
CAN THERE BE A BEST ETHIC OF SUSTAINABILITY? by Paul T. Durbin,
If this were not being addressed to a philosophy audience, I could probably stop here. The guidelines and framework [proposed here] are likely to be useful only if we recognize that each real-world implementation is going to be radically different, peculiar to its own region. In principle, there may be a general framework for ethical sustainability, but in practice there are only local democratic attempts to bring about some approximation of it.(shortened and in my words) --
"No. There can be no best ethic because it's a matter of what we can get away with in each locality."You see, people don't like being blocked in their efforts to provide a living for themselves and their families. And they really get pissed when they find their very lives being written off. So any open efforts to eliminate large numbers of human beings needs to be done surreptitiously. If the Sus worshippers can get us to kill each other, and their hands are not directly implicated, they have a win-win situation.
Now read again my second paragraph above.
Is that right, Ms. Ann Thrope?
