Letters: Response to Eberhardt

New economics in letter questioned by Shirley resident

Response to: “Dr. Suzuki is a “saint” says writer,” Sooke News Mirror, April 25, 2012

Mr. Eberhardt had me all the way up to the point where he began to bog down in his vaguely envisioned “new economics,”an economics in which “money” is somehow reduced in importance.

If this new economics were so obviously achievable and sublimely desirable, why not issue some stock, Mr. Eberhardt, and listen to the cold, cold heart of reality suddenly stop, to make room for your fantasy.

We’d all starve, Mr. Eberhardt, we’d all spend our days and nights praying.

Please — when you find a solution to the problem, “then,” let us know, otherwise, save your oratory for your followers at the “tree hugging Church of Science-Tology.”

Furthermore, Mr. Eberhardt, more new species are discovered each year, in the world, than there are species discovered missing — found by intrusive, intrepid research scientists, who scour the Earth in their passionate quest for — tenure.
