Why don't we all stop caring?

After all as Hitler said who needs all this namby pamby motherhood stuff:  the stuff of  Christianity . not only are there tears and suffering,  but we are supposed to endure suffering
Lets be Teutons for a change;  Lets be harder and smarter
After all its a dog eat dog world isn't it .

Ecological Idealism is scary for the way it says its interested in the the eco ( the household and its welfare) and yet allows/encourages  individuals to just do what they like{ to fight for their right (eg dog eat dog ) .
If you listen to many post modernists they seem to be enjoying a new found freedom : they sound like people free to not care, If nature works without our care why the prayer?
 Does good eco order happen without us , or even while we do our own thing ?

Dostoevsky wasn't the first to note that with the death of God comes the end of moral courage .
Without faith in a God who wants good for all and created good for all, the world can be has been so much worse.

The new post modern ( nature does the work) logic on caring 
Yet the new logic is being put . Let me do what I want and if people or trees or rivers or other silent things need care,  I will be most caring - I will insist the government care for them . Not sure I would really pay up for that )
This talk of looking after the the weaker smaller and unspoken for element is fine,  but using the idea of the law and fights for rights shows how little these advocates  know about what really works to protect . They make caring too simple when it goes to the heart of the interdependence of God's creation and how it works. 
The new progressives are reacting not thinking ahead
They can easily become just  band aid and emergency services brigades attarcting the sort of staff who don't care about anything but money : discouraging by their careless talk of caring ( and love of procedure ) any staff who take time to really care , Time bookkeeping is breaking hearts . 
A lack of real care and high cost comes with institutionalizing it all - creates empires of dependency which is in long term unsustainable  Most importantly,  this simple talk ignores how ecological caring is a site seeding fine tuning operation that actually includes kicking birds out of nests to look after themselves: Quite sustainable , Does not require rules but requires on ground on site  Time well spent but not exactly on site  ontime specific  -- as a mere accountant would want.

The only reason the self proclaimed caring parties  ( like our present Greens)  can talk is because they ignore most of the caring parties who operate on ground and at their own cost and locally .
The only reason The caring parties  ( like our present Greens)  can talk is because they ignore the fact that their way of paying for the cost of caring is through taxes they might beexpected to be  reluctant to pay. ( esp if we went more their way )
These overly sentimental rebel simplifyers heretics of a more full blown caring civilization of the past are leading into a socity that just can't last.  They only imagine they are inventing and involving when leaving things out of the recipe leads to inedible bread. 
These progressive  westerners are at risk of expecting too much of governmnets. They would sedn us all broke.
The simple solution makers  ignore the high cost benefit of  most of the existing ( but now dwindling?) caring parties who operate on ground and at their own cost and locally.
Ignoring the mad progressives love of simple ways to solve others problems( without really solving them)  lets consider the complex OLD way we used to care ? Locally voluntarily with up close and wise  and at our own free choice

Up close and wise  where we are free to completely understand the local need and defend it .sustainable and effective and respecting the listening process 
Not the task funded by an accountant or a law which says who goes first for what reason 
.Unsustainable and ineffective and not respecting the listening process 

A better way to care for nature who has no voice
As a practical and effective ecologist and resilience planner I  wish for nothing more than that students of science were given State support to study eco communities as I was .
Good local effective care work relies on knwoing the local really well . The state would authorie itseflf to judge but really the state houls authorize the local inetrmedairy whose local to judge
This move to centralize power and policy at teh top is ultimately unproductive.

The role of protector     
Issues still to be dealt with

--- simple logic leads to crass stupidity Unborn life is work focused not valued. Whats living should be increasingly respected. It could the rational determinists recipe for less people less problems and he focus on me and teh present, How nice how simple

---the law is a ass and likely to screw the smaller element.
 ---The ass of the law is that it treats rights of individuals , not the community and its competeing elements . The elements of life are not like us - independent but mutually working together for big picture outcomes
---article points out law is not going to work Its as ass and a simple ass   
---Is modern morality  is about feelings - and my felleing the feelings of the moment . unborn babies can be assumed by some ,  to not feel
Practically we have a way and we cant think of a better way , Some insist that we follow their faith that new will cause better to evolve to even better .
I think it comes down to this , without a picture of an almighty creator or judge to intervene or a earthly protector ( so much reliant on taxes and less reliable  ) we can talk .....and people  just talk about whats better.
You can tell by the way we talk that we are made in the image of god - but why bother trying to be like God . Too hard 
Lord Protector - the unbelievers option 
The option for the unbelievers with a heart seems to be  a earthly protector but his job is relaint on corceion and taxation
what a joy for the free rebel in us , we do what we like The state will keep us inline
Will we be like children ?
Guilt 0the unnaed issue, we use up resoeuces , If we admit our sin we can make a start if we blame othesrs our guilt carries on

OUR CHOICE ? An internal dualism or an external dualism  
who is right then Luther ( Man has 2 natures inside ) and teh world which followed him and tested the idea or the new world order( Good is external and usually in governmnet )  which is already been sorely tested
what will it work in the future  : has worked ?
As an ecologsist and a christain ia accept the constraints of both nature and the Creator , That we dont really know how perfectly to hold our need for bread and land for where our roots are to grow .
I know with Mario Puzo that life is hard and we need to be well and coorectly focused on the nature of the problem  Salavotore Guiliano and many idealists B4 him thought  that land is what men wanted and needed 
Jesus knew that it was bread men needed
By following out own local caring demands locally i am sure there is bread to share , We are free form misplaced guilt to really care where we can .
The Christain remians the serant of all but in service has complete freedom   Quote Luthers the freedom of a Christian
