What next?

Where are we going – so fast, eyes so tightly closed? Humans – hopelessly bound by our biology, yet wonderfully free to think, speak and write whatever, wisdom or nonsense. But what about doing something about our future? Together, for the common good. Not much going on there.

An old cartoon – maybe in Punch originally:  man rowing downstream in an ever-increasing current, sees notice by the side of the river “Weir here”. “So we are”, he jokes to his terrified passenger, who can see the immediate future over the rower’s shoulders.

And we almost are, aren’t we?
