How the ‘ecosystem’ myth has been used for sinister means | Environment | The Observer.

I post this because it reflects a number of principles in the dynamic of human society  :

1. That some of the actions and movements within socity today can be understood in terms of biological systems …or maybe understood ( a theory is a theory …unless it imperceptably becomes closer to reality and the truth due to repetitive and rigorous testing of the hypothesis ).

2. That sometimes we can better understand today’s thinking because it actually has roots in earlier thinking , whose authors are now gone but whose concepts are not , but persist  in some morphed form or other.

3. Altruistic power is an ideal  but  mostly exists as an oxymoron or as a double standard …what applies to you does apply to you ( and only you ) , but what applies to you does not necessarily apply to me.

Orwell’s Animal Farm said it best ” all animals are equal…just some are more equal than others  ( paraphrased ) “.
