I once quipped that environmentalism was invented by the KGB in the popular agronomical ignorance aftermath of a northeastern agronomical exodus and the subsequent Douglas fir nominal grade code stipulated housing construction boom. And, that the causal legislation and reality was the 1956 Superhighway and National Defense Act and the then novel transportation sector, with its class A freight and standardization.
This mentality transformation as it appeared subsequent to the 1956 Superhighway legislation was also subsequent to laws passed in 1862. The Morrill land grant university act of 1862 stipulated that specific skills would be instilled in technically competent professionals tasked with working in specific regions. The pacific rail act, also of 1862, facilitated the inter workings of these stipulated federal regions.
I feel that the 1860’s civil conflict was the application of federal advantage for commerce and defense in a bicameral schism precluded by the penning of the bicameral aspect of foundational document prescriptions for the legislature and it’s two bodies. it occurred at to the detriment of pastoral idealism and community integrity, yet, the USA subsequently destroyed Nazi Germany and the Soviet Socialist Republic, amongst other evils.
Ecology is a godless and delusional view of the earth which has since it’s inception been fervently built into an increasingly legitimate science by good people amongst the deluded and ignorant hopefuls who believed they had achieved suburban agronomy – whilst true farmers predominantly departed the eventual suburban population zones for “greener pastures”.
The USA has always been a natural resources and agronomy superpower. Amidst the half to two acre “country farm” mythology and delusions of New England; I would personally stipulate a radical development of a range of agro-ecological land use and research science industrialism scenarios.
Yet, we must beware the perpetually paradigmatic Cold War and it’s debate between public and private sector and the extremes of monetary policy; both to the detriment of valuation beyond capital yet also in consideration of quagmire of failure which occurs when neither capital nor currency facilitates marketplace activities.
To think of the earth must be to think of it’s utile anthropocentric qualities. Yet, additionally, the real and just novel aspects of natural sciences comprehend the spatial and temporal limits of populations on an admittedly finite earth. Rotational harvests of renewables and preparedness for finite, often extracted, ores and fuels needs be a real concern in national and global security.
