Bitch Slapping Mother Nature

by Regis Boff

In all of human history, we have never on mass said as a species,” No, we will not let Nature take a course.” We have always grimly accepted death; there wasn’t an alternative.
So now we have one. Medicine and science have finally said no.
Part of me senses that we have chosen out of philosophical privilege to pay a price that may exceed the value of the life we have spared.
My misguided generation was voided of traditional good sense because we had too much. Circumstances made us fortunate, so instead of hardness, we opted for superficial political meanness and hate. If we survive to an epitaph, it will most likely read, ” Very nice but wrong.”
