A gaian perspective:

"No other creatures take more than they need, and this must be our first lesson. Our second lesson is to learn and emulate nature's fine-tuned recycling economics, largely powered by free solar energy. This does not mean going back to log cabins or tipis, but to eliminate waste and junk as we creatively develop diverse human lifestyles of elegant and sustainable simplicity."

It seems to me that our task is clear. We need to sit down and "creatively develop diverse lifestyles of elegant and sustainable simplicity." I would submit that the infrastructure outlined here is an enabler in this task.

To put it bluntly:

"No matter what your political persuasion might be, there is simply no way that an economically insecure, badly educated, badly treated population can be made to thrive, and this sets the stage for some very bad economic performance. As the economy collapses and economic losses mount, social and political instability become inevitable."
