Racing To Nowhere

L. E. Modesitt, Jr. has a fantastic post regarding our "race" to maintain what we have and our desire to work harder for it, even though it isn't working.
The real Red Queen's race is the one that has been around since the beginning of civilization -- and one whose effects have been largely mitigated or delayed in the industrialized west for the past century or so. Simply put, we have now reached the point in the development of our civilization where it will shortly become obvious to all levels of all societies that, technology and ingenuity notwithstanding, we cannot physically provide the very best in health care, commodity goods, services, housing, and food to very individual, or even to a sizable fraction of our populations.
Good stuff.

(Don't click the read more, there isn't any more after this!)
