Directly relating to E.O. Wilson's concept of consilience, this little guy is branching out to interact with a changing environment, problem is, his biology has no idea how to adapt to such an accelerated loss of ecological habitat. We don't appear to be much better and yet we are cause.

Rarely Difficult for the Average Man, yet...

All things excellent are as difficult as they are rare."
— Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677)

The titled responsion is perhaps his most famous uttering, captured by historians and regurgitated by the mouthing motions of our culture.

This little guy is branching out to interact with a changing environment, directly relating to E.O. Wilson's concept of consilience (originally from Whewell). His biology has no idea how to adapt to such an accelerated loss of ecological habitat. We don't appear to be much better, yet we are causing. Excellence is right in front of us; apparently, we are destroying her at an extinction rate!

Common and Good Go Together

Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends than that good man should look on and do nothing.
— John Stuart Mill (1806-1873)

The titled responsion points toward ends justifying the means over the inability to act towards a common Good. Notice how I didn't preface Good with The. However, I have capitalized Good to indicate an ideal, Platonic to be exact. It's a society that is participating in this capital punishment making the Good into something less than ideal, a perversion of sorts; 'for me' as justified by what spews from the mouths of millions to satiate their silos of solitude and perpetual misinformation on a mass scale.
