for Life and Today's Issues
for life is the idea that we should notice and respect all forms of life
and take care to protect them. So how does this philosophy apply to life
in the 21st century?
In many ways, the world appears to be going down the wrong path
wars, extinctions and global warming to name just a few examples of the
terrifying things which we hear about daily.
Is it really as bad as it seems?
Humans have developed so many new technologies in the last few decades:
from the internet to genetic modification and ever better cars to cloning,
we seem to be inventing faster than we can control. The huge financial
investment in research, driven by commercial interests, makes for a pressure
to produce a profit which rides rough-shod over possible long-term side-effects,
damage and pollution.
