I need a short name for what is lacking; I call it the ecological conscience.  Ecology is the science of communities, and the ecological conscience is therefore the ethics of community life.  I will define it further in terms of four case histories, which I think show the futility of trying to improve the face of the land without improving ourselves. Aldo Leopold in The Ecological Conscience (1947)


Although I was highly offended by Rodney Dangerfield's one-liner in Caddyshack - Last time I saw a mouth like that, it had a hook in it. - I just think this cartoon by Scott Hilburn is hilarious...don't you? 

To make it match the other two hats, he could have had that hat on the bear turned the other way (that is if he'd harvested a male of your species)!  Now wouldn't that have been funny...especiallly if it was cold in that bar.  

Although we fishes are often in very cold water, we don't have to worry about such a thing.



This tendency to avoid problems and the emotional suffering inherent in them is the primary basis of all human mental illness.  Since most of us have this tendency to a greater or lesser degree, most of us are mentally ill to a greater or lesser degree, lacking complete mental health.”  M. Scott Peck, psychiatrist and bestselling author of The Road Less Traveled



“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.”  Winston Churchill
