Advocating Wilson's Principle (to protect long-continuing Human existence)
Edward O. Wilson, one of the great social psychologists of all time, proposed a clear "principle" to focus humanity on rationally attempting to protect continued human existence into a genuinely indefinite future. It is clearly stated in the final pages of his current book: "The Social Conquest of Earth". I also nominate that as the Book of the Year 2012!
IAs the present proposal, I will quote that concise idea:
"IF WE SAVE THE LIVING WORLD, WE WILL ALSO AUTOMATICALLY SAVE THE PHYSICAL WORLD, BECAUSE IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE FIRST WE MUST ALSO ACHIEVE THE SECOND."
