A Primary Allegiance
"Molecules don't have passports. All the creatures on Earth are in this together. We need a primary allegiance to the species and to the planet Earth."
A quote from Carl Sagan--The Compassionate Universe, borrowed this morning from Alyssa at My Examined Life.
Have you examined your life lately? How's that workin' for ya?
My Dr. Phil profile on Facebook says: "Others see you as someone they should 'handle with care.' You're seen as vain, self-centered, and extremely dominant. Others may admire you, wishing they could be more like you. However, they don't always trust you, hesitating to become too deeply involved with you."
You don't trust me? You think I'm vain and self-centered? I LOVE polar bears! I'm sorry global warming is destroying their habitat! I hate that the rain forests and the coral reefs are disappearing! If I had a million dollars (I don't) I would split it between China and Myanmar! I'm nice. You can trust me.
...maybe I'll go now and examine my life....
