WALL STREET JOURNAL
Dear Editor: The Prime Directive I am troubled by what I see are the vast moral inconsistencies that permeate American society. Not believing in science but having a total addiction to the cell phone and internet. Believing in the right to life but not the right to have clean air, water, dirt or a clean ocean. This is not a chicken or the egg choice here. Without air, death arrives in ten minutes, without water the kidneys die after four days. Taking care of the planet should be a moral imperative. For the people about to take control of our government it is not. And this is a moral disconnect from what the meaning of life really is. No matter what the religion there are basic principles that have been handed down through time. Keeping one’s word, being honest, a sense of basic integrity, do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This seems to have been forgotten. It has become OK to do anything to anybody at any time for money and ultimately this is an emotional and spiritual dead end. We know the pursuit and use fossil fuels is a dead end. When alternative renewable energy hits the market, America’s fossil fuel industry and those employed by it will come to an end. Those trying to hold onto this way of life will fail and will drag the rest of us down with them. Pollution is killing us slowly. It makes our eyes water and it becomes more difficult to breath. The results of the last two hundred years of the industrial age are all around us. Drought and fires in Alabama and Georgia. Rising tides covering the streets of Miami with six inches of water. Massive floods in Texas, Louisiana and Nashville, changes in bird migrations, disappearing bees and butterflies, dying forests in the west as the summer fires grow ever more massive. I want a government that believes in and upholds the basic human rights and values of which I have spoken. It is necessary for the survival of those that will follow us after we die.
