Empathy and the Planet
Written by Enrique Lescure
What does it mean to be a European technocrat of our generation?
Or more importantly... What should it mean?
The inherent irrationalism of Modern civilisation
To be a technocrat is to be aware that sustainability is more than just how much we regulate the current system, how many warning signs we place on toxic materials or how many wildlife reserves we have today. Nit-picking in details while ignoring the entirety of the situation is not a matter for a serious technocrat. Although specialisation is crucial, awareness of some sort of holistic existence is necessary in order to function as a constructive individual in relation to the planet as a whole.
