A Manifesto for Sustainable Resource Use
-an etiological progression identifying the nature
...we have no idea how what we are doing to the resource/environment is going to affect our future, but we do know with certainty that we will regret what done -someone eventually wondering "What in the world were they thinking???"
(-from 'Sustainable Resource Use' and The Nature of Civilization and Government/Economy under Thus-far Human Evolution)
1 - Knowledge comes into existence and evolves solely as a consequence of human genetics (evolutionary process), ignorance at birth, deliberative capability and 'circumstances peculiar to one's cultural background and growing up'; what statistical probity there is that characterizes knowledge then, develops within and out of that.
2 - 'Natural rights and freedoms' -and ALL 'isms' in general (then), are primitive artifacts circumstantial of that evolution of knowledge; 'the right to bear children', therefore, has no
validity (discussion) other than those genetics and that circumstantiality as the basis and nature of its existence.
3 - We are committed by facts of genetic imperative and deliberative capability
to optimize existence as a life-form on the planet -committment, therefore, which supercedes our origins and existence as 'mere warm-blooded, pecking-order-based vertebrates'.
4 - The more widespread and deep the degradation of the physical body constituting potential 'sustainable resource use' (then), the greater the loss of potential usefulness to this human-kind life-form of deliberative
capability assessing and assimilating that loss'.
"... the more it [humankind] learns about its uncorrupted configuration space, the more deliberatively it 'husbands the uncorrupted' for further discovery -the inevitability, therefore, of eventually least population of
least resource/environment corruption". [-'sustainable resource use' therein]
