from a friend

Wanted to insert a little gem of a comment from a friend here: 

"...perhaps you can take some solace in the fact that in 100 years time, we're going to be looking back (well, maybe not us, but people will look back) and decidedly say, "What a bunch of dumb fucks.  Trading water for oil? Who in their right minds could possibly...?"  It's like something went fundamentally wrong with us as a species somewhere down the line.  If we were looking at a colony of insects who were doing something similar (just picture it), we'd decide that they were the dumbest creatures on Earth, wouldn't we?"

I think you hit the nail right on the head SM.  We're too blind, greedy and selfish to see what we're doing though.  'We' as in the industry, the politicians, those who just consume, consume, consume....
