Human Eusociality , Once our species' blessing, now is destroying us
Two important pieces of data published last year powerfully reinforce the importance of my original issue (title referenced above); an article in Harper's Magazine on the Lubavitcher's dichotomizing to the point of open warfare in Brooklyn, and an extensive report on sociobiologist E. O. Wilson's current interests in Atlantic Magazine November 2011.
I am not the optimist about our hopes for the future that Wilson seems to be. In fact, I am sure he is wrong in believing that we can salvage our ecosphere. I say Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst, more or less, in all my conversational gambits.
