America Must Lead

As a former European, having lived and worked in the United States for some twenty-seven years, I find all the activities of the United Nations on display at COP26 in Glasgow, promoting evolutionary incompatible first-principles extremely disturbing.

European Talk

Amidst stubborn ignorance of nature’s rule, the COP26 closing plenary session in which members and “high-level champions” congratulate themselves on achieving agreement on text rather than evolutionary compatible actions makes my skin crawl.

The fanfare of consensus with pledges and mind-boggling actions, in blatant violation of nature’s first-principles, uncorrelated to an overarching theory that should have been established before any systems are built to produce predictable outcomes from the funds flushed through, brings the doomsday scenario of human extinction even closer.


The United States, still riding up front in the race of human excellence and freedom, prepared to catch all the wind, should not fall back to the purported safety of the U.N. peloton of lowest-common-denominator consensus.

From nature’s first-principles we must establish a human theory, embed the theory in the systems we build, select the merit of input to produce the desirable output, and lay down the rules under which the integrity of the theory is supported.


Nature’s first-principles are not elective and the U.N.’s approach of reaching consensus is evidence of the lingering solipsism humanity must lose to save us from ourselves. Entropy, as the cause of all irreversible change, including climate change, on our planet (and the universe) is not up for debate.

Climate change is a consequence not a cause of entropy, and the actions of the U.N. confounding cause and consequence leads to grave depravity of reason. Shoving more money through a funnel of consequence without an evolutionary cause will cause an accelerated anthropogenic cascade.

Better Than Back

The United States must do better, not with a build-back-better plan uncorrelated to a defining human theory compatible with nature, but with a theory driving the efficacy of systems with predictable outcomes.

The systems of humanity have failed, as I have pointed out, as their overlords have admitted. More money will not correct the grave depravity of reason stemming from the confounding of evolutionary consequence and cause. For too long, humanity has operated like a business without a business plan. What could possibly go wrong?


We are a country of reinvention (upstream), not a country that follows the herd (downstream). And thus, we must reexamine the theory that abides by nature’s principles to improve human adaptability to nature’s entropy. We can fundamentally improve human adaptability to nature’s entropy, including climate change. But not with more of the same.

Change will not come from consensus, it must come from a country with enough impact and hutzpah to reinvent our world anew, and inspire the world with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.

The sign of an intelligent nation is its willingness and ability to reinvent itself, upstream. Let’s inspire the world with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
