Shakespeare’s Consummation

In any of the issues dealing with the Parkway: enough water, more public safety resources, funding and management stability, and greater public access; the public policy shaped by government depends upon cultural forces influencing government and over the past several years those forces have been largely driven by an environmentalist movement which gives a superior status to the natural world through the demotion of humans.

The perambulations of logic that allow environmentalists to somehow fail to understand that human beings are the intelligent aspect of the natural world are sometimes exotic, but always corrosive.

However, recent cultural/political changes seem to indicate that anti-human environmentalism is on its last legs which—if true—would be a welcome sign that a more rational and traditional perspective of human superiority accompanied by human stewardship of the natural world, may take hold once again.

It is a consummation devoutly to be wished…thank you Shakespeare.
