Ecology is a system composed of two subsystems: Nature and Man. In fact, if Man did not exist ecology won’t be necessary. And it is the mankind, the part of the equation that pseudo-ecologists (the Dogs-Flute) usually forget.
Argentina, as many other parts of the world, is now experiencing a tense campaign against mining. Dogs-Flute loaded with mining products vehement protest against this old core business of our society.
If we were to follow this line of thought to its ultimate consequences we would find that nothing is less environmentally friendly than a town or city. Going even further, probably the most negative fact against Nature would be the birth of a child: predatory of other animals and plants, producer of all kinds of waste, pollutant and useless. And I would add: stupid…
So provide we are here (who knows why) and the Dogs-Flute are not claiming yet for the destruction of cities or the murder of babies… let’s try to support the kind of mining that is more environmental friendly (surprise, it exists today: http://pinsapo-ecogold.com ) as the livelihoods (directly or indirectly) of 90% of our civilization.
So, if we are not to ignore everyday’s items such as the floor of our house, a fork or a cell phone, don’t act as a hypocrite fundamentalist.
The current slogan of the Dogs-Flute: “No Mining” should be translated by a more honest: “No Mining -in my yard”. Or what is the same: Mining, Yes –but in my neighbor’s yard. Which is not that much solidary, and does not impress me.
In the “Diula” language in Mali, the term « dugutigui » (chief of the village), literally translated, means: «owner of the village»; «dugu» means village and «tigui», owner. Probably the term is the result of the contraction of «dugu kuntigui» (literally: chief of the village).
