Playing the "do nothing" card

What is natural

Here's what I'm thinking about today 2/11/2019

The things we do to protect ourselves are very often the things that destroy us

When, without thinking carefully or planning long term, we pass laws and devise systems intended to make life easier and or safer, we can easily make things worse not better. We live in a massive ecosystem of stars, planets, mountains, plains, oceans, rivers, plants, animals, microbes, molecules, and atoms, and a strict set of physical and moral laws that govern all of them.

We tinker with these systems at our own peril especially when we forget two important facts: everything is interconnected, and everything belongs. A few examples follow.

Some Examples

We need to teach the next generation about long term thinking, and meanwhile play the "do nothing" card more often.
