One of the greatest tragedies of the current situation is the DENIAL by the 1% of our human connection to the environment and how close we are to environmentally caused catastrophes. This immediately brings up the issue of SUSTAINABILITY. Because thinking long term is NOT a trait that most humans are good at, most people can't even envision how to go about it. But if we don't get this right, it's GAME OVER for the human race as we know it. DINOSAURS!
There is another major environmental issue that I think current society is totally missing: BEAUTY. Anyone who has visited Greece is awed by the beauty the ancient people stressed for their buildings and environment. Because of the narrow minded drive for wealth and self centeredness of the Robber Baron 1% of our time, beauty, for the WORKERS, is completely absent. And it is absent both in the work place and the communities. Of course, that isn't the case in their castles.
