To diminish the billions of dollars owed the native American Indian for reparations, the United States Government retains a New York City law firm to try and develop a case proving the Hudson Bay Company of Canada, in teaching the economics of trading, hunting and providing exotic furs from the Americas to the British Isles, purposefully or not, taught the American white man to hunt, ,slaughter and kill, one unintended consequence of which was the decimation of the American Indian and 30,000,000 Buffalo who lived, like the Native American, in harmony and at peace and in balance with the world.

It is extraordinary and counterintuitive to even consider the presence of man’s cerebral development the origin of his evolutionary failure, but the facts of our anthropomorphic culture and it’s tension, now a flashpoint pitting commonwealth, a purely human artifact, against individual rights appears, thus far, irreconcilable.
The way our press and thoughtful intercourse declaims, there is no solution in the US, between the 1%’er’s with their Republican advocates, and the 99% er’s supported by Democrats.
There seems no reconciliation of the class warfare between rich and poor, and underscoring the immediacy and historical precedent emphasizing the dilemma, we do have factual and empiric evidence of evolutionary suicide. Increasingly we have recognized evolution is not linear and there are many species which have unwittingly died off as a direct result of the 1%ers, the extraordinary success of the individual, ultimately causing the demise of the whole species. Though unbelievable on it’s face, there are countless examples of individuals who become so advanced for their skills in propagation, their own individual biological imperative, the downstream outcome has been the jeopardy and often extinction of the whole of the species. A bull moose with an enormous rack, attractive to the female but ultimately indefensible, for his gargantuan antlers becomes easy prey to the local wolves, and the small angel fish, so brightly colored to attract the best female courtesans for propagation, is suddenly, for those larger predators, so marked, natural camouflage inoperative, he is an easy mark for the larger and always hungry Amberjack looking for easy pickings and a quick meal.
If there is one aspect or behavior which truly separates man from beast, distinguishes man from animal, it is the process of reflection, circumspect thought and consideration. More than anything, it is the ability to effect our own change affirmatively, from the study of history, contemplation of alternatives and the act of deep reflective thought or lack thereof, that will, in the eons of history, distinguish us, or not from the legions of two and four foot animals who still flourish, and those now extinct.
And ironically, the tool evolution and adaptation has provided this undertaking is the very brain which may cause our demise.
The history of man is littered with the remains of societies and cultures thought too big to fall. The history of the kingdoms of species, multi-cellular crustaceans to dinosaurs, is paradoxically also filled with a rich history of those that survived, and well more in numbers who did not. There is no quid pro quo for animals, vertebrates, humans or sea squirts. At the end of the day, for all organic life, there appears increasingly a science and factual pattern to the life cycle of critters big and small.
From a distance we appear heading for that same celestial orbit, inevitably ending with our falling into the sun or gyrating out of control into deep space and beyond.
