Correct Our Trajectory

I find the priority given to human beings over all else to be philosophically mistaken. Just because humans have come to dominate the trajectory of the global system does not mean that it is correct to rank humans as more important than anything else. That philosophical position is shallow anthropocentrism.


Intellectually, placing the highest priority on human beings leads erroneously to the notion that absolute ownership of everything will produce workable management. This thought pattern arises from a combination of egotism, belief in consumer-based economics and willful ignorance of the most powerful external forces impacting our global environmental systems.
