Current Residence: N Billerica Mass, a few miles South of the Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center where I worked through the 70s before getting fired and barred for life from my career for participating in the 'PATCO strike of August 1981', [google it if you're curious]. I loved that job. Pres Reagan terminated 12,000 of us with a knee jerk stroke of his pen.

Personal Quote: From he to whom much is given, much will be required.
OPINION - actually a suggestion for planetary sustainment:
Due to natural human [generally aggressive male] tendencies, Capitalism, if *unregulated* damages the environment [thru thoughtless exploitation of resources], and it damages our general way of life [through concentration of wealth]. THIS IS TRUE. All one needs to do is honestly look at our nation and *especially* the world.
"Thoughtless exploitation of resources" and "concentration of wealth" happen because the most "aggressive" among us are the people [generally male] who gravitate to the top in business and politics. Thus, 'The Free Market' and 'Capitalism' are not panaceas. Neither, of course, is 'Socialism'. Perhaps a form of 'Regulated Social-Democratic Capitalism' is. Along these lines, we should [I tend to think] assemble a group of 'thinkers' from all nations to non-selfishly write a 'Social Document', acceptable to all, privileging none, beneficial to the sustainment of the planet. Any nation refusing to ratify the final Document would need to be ostracized as anti-social. Religious leaders would just need to agreeably 'suck-it-up for the benefit of mankind' [or be thoroughly ostracized].
This, or something equally 'all-inclusive'. We're approaching 'emergency conditions'.
