I look at the problem with humanity from the future usefulness of the environment. Homesteading and tribal living used to be a challenge to add our value to wild lands. The modern economics oligarchs only see a flow of resources away from the environment (extraction). Our economy runs backward, and our educational systems are backward. Every effort of humanity should be toward increasing the viability of the future environment for generations to come. That means those who have hands in the dirt should be our best and brightest, receiving full support from every other vocation of humans, so that if we make it the stars, it will be to contribute, not conquer. Life is too short for beliefs in invisible hands and war Gods.
