"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."
"But we will all be taken down with it."

The speaker still works. I guess I'm not as hard-headed as I wish I was.
This morning before getting out of bed I was reflecting on how babies before they learn language don't really think in the way that we do because from the evidence we have now it seems that it's not possible to think without language. So in a way, learning language is also learning to think. And I reflected on how, at some earlier point, I too had been a moderately-sized baby, gradually learning language and learning to think. I really wish I could remember what that was like, but there's the obvious impossibility of metacognition preceding cognition.
Okay, enough Sunday-afternoon navel-gazing. Time for me to be reading about divorce law and you to be reading funny stuff like this.
