I have to disagree on the business as usual parts.
It is a question of definition I think.
Trump is novel in his approach, true, but he is just - “all about money” - which I define as “business as usual.”
Clinton’s (both) - same.
Obama - same - Bush(s) - same.
The western world - same.
If we ever leave 'business as usual, it will be because we finally come to agree with our artists and scientists - that we are part of nature - not its master.
This article’s title has “Ethics Laws” in it.
How narrow minded we are to think that ethics is confined to the legal system and the political realm.
Here is a magnificent interview by Mongabay of Edward O. Wilson, arguably our greatest living biologist - arguably our best ever.
I urge all to read it in full - it is extensive - and decide for yourself if ethics is not innate in the human being ?
Perhaps the political or legal human being is not whole - perhaps we should first seek to become whole ?
