[GreenYes] Reactin to David Orr's contribution in #25
To David Orr's contribution in Greenyes V1 #25.
("Some thoughts on the present and future direction of
this movement")

Only a small number of the small number of those who
are concerned about the quality of life on Earth have
any vague idea of what the end-result of their efforts
(should there be any efforts exercised) should look
like. And – if they do, it, in all probability, would
not match the vision of all the others engaged in
trying to improve the quality of life on Earth. What
is happening now is that a lot of effort is being
wasted on results that would only be short-lived in
most cases, a situation caused by us not having any
clear vision of the future of humans on Earth in
sights.
What could help would be to make clear what results
all those who are endeavoring to improve on the
unsatisfactory nature of things in our world want, -
in other words – we need to start creating a model of
how humans should live on Earth in balance with all
that that comprises life on Earth. With little doubt
such a model would call for humans to live truly
ecologically sustainably, and the definition of what
is ecologically sustainable is becoming progressively
clearer with all the efforts made by science, - there
is progressively less and less vagueness possible, -
however - even this definition would require
co-operative modeling.
We should stop running away from what is bad in the
world and start running (as fast as possible) towards
what is desirable, but – it has to be clearly  stated
what that "desirable" is. Modeling of what humans
behavior in the world should be (humans are
intelligent enough to be able to do that) should be no
problem with today's state of knowledge and technology
any more.
