The conservative, corporatist, fundamentalist alliance has always been the blind leading the deaf and blind. Conservatism is the political philosophy of mass extinction. In three billion years of life on this planet, maybe 600 million years of complex life and five or six mass extinctions, nature has one underlying, overriding law: Life that does not evolve, adapt, and conform to an ever changing environment is doomed to eminent extinction without fail.
Humanity has somehow evolved consciousness that allows some reading of possible futures. Hopefully we are quickly evolving the wisdom to try to do something about our situation on this planet. Any solutions to our increasing wave of problems will never come from corporatists, conservatives, or fundamentalists. They give us two alternatives: over the cliff or over the falls. We have one choice to make: change or CHANGE!
