Do We Have the 'Right' to a Future?
Individually, yes but collectively no. That’s a very quick answer, but it shadows a great many flaws in what we have come to define as our collective society.
Of course we’re going to 'get' a future
Unless we die tomorrow and that might happen individually, but is highly unlikely collectively. But the future falls unfairly heavily on the young and they are not the ones in control. Instead, we’re long on conspiracy and short on theories.
Aging CEOs of major corporations and our representatives in government are unreasonably at the levers of change and yet they have the least skin in the game. Most are going to be dead—or at least retired and out of that game they should have skin in.
They dodder. They call together a committee to produce a report and knit-together a proposal for a law to send down to the Senate to lie among the 450 already sent and not acted upon. That’s the system we live by while we continue to destroy the planetary system.
