  • Does our and Obama's Paralysis on Global Warming come from American Exceptionalism?
    • People want examples and precedence but cannot see historical study yeilds quite a few which can be applied to todays preamble to collapse, but this one will be on a new scale and have long term effects. The arrogance of the new and the modern, the refusal to see progress traps, these are deeply ingrained in western society. We're destined to become another historical example of another way to fold a society in on itself. We're going to have to collectively fall on our faces before we collectively get it. Short of mandated study of how civilizations collapse (Jared Dimond anyone?) which just isnt realistic, people have an absolute inability to apply rational thought to long term threats; this perhaps might be another evolutionary iteration at work.
