George Carlin who says he is only an onlooker to the parade of life. He states:
“Man’s noble aspect is the aberration. Art, music and philosophy are merely poignant examples of what we might have been had not the priests and traders gotten hold of us. I think the human game was over a long time ago when they took over.”
In a few hundred or years [maybe sooner] (a blink of an eye in the course of earth time) humans will kill themselves off or be killed off by the robots, then mother earth will take over again and pretend as if humans never existed.
In his essay, Green Capitalism: The God That Failed, Richard Smith tells us “The results are in: No amount of “green capitalism” will be able to ensure the profound changes we must urgently make to prevent the collapse of civilization from the catastrophic impacts of global warming.”
Some other points from the essay:
“…he Chamber of Commerce and National Association of Manufacturers would appear to be right and pro-growth, pro-market environmentalists wrong: Under capitalism, growth and jobs are more often than not at odds with environmental protection.”
“…given capitalism, imposing big cuts in greenhouse gas emissions means imposing big job cuts across industrialized economies around the world. That’s why, regardless of protests, no capitalist government on the planet will accept mandatory cuts in GHG emissions.”
Carlin was right.
