Rule by secrecy, or government as we know it, is the real or primary cause of the ecological catastrophe in and adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico.

It's a cinch that transparency - REAL transparency, not the phony baloney, half-assed (at best) "transparency" people like Barack Obama espouse - in government is THE catalyst for greater knowledge, which governs all things political, spiritual, scientific and educational in general. If, beginning in 1947, the National "Security" State would never have been permitted to exist, the greater knowledge the public would have received would have resulted in, for instance, our being able to quit using poisonous energy sources like petroleum, coal and nuclear power, at least soon enough. Or IF it wouldn't have worked out that way, at least we could say we exhausted every possible effort, like an intelligent enough species would do. Certainly the crude oil required for manufacturing solid products could be extracted from land-based wells only, assuming oil would be used for anything at all.

So, to whom it applies, please carry on with your blaming BP for its safety violations of the blowout protector as the "cause" of the oily disaster, or whatever other weak, small time criticizing. Such huffing and puffing is purely farcical. It's the equivalent of screaming for Band Aids when major surgery is needed. It's ignorance to the degree of psychosis. Everyone who's comfortable enough with anything resembling the beyond-gargantuan level of secrecy that runs everything (at least now) is responsible for all environmental destruction. Rule by secrecy equals rule by fear/cowardice, ignorance and greed. Period. You have only yourselves to blame (to whom it applies).

It's difficult to put into words, but I'm getting a feeling that Earth humans are entering a new phase that's all about determining the overall worthiness of the species. Soon enough it will be sink-or-swim time. Will there be a strong enough migration away from the passive, reactive, wallowing, breast-beating weakling routine? Will enough people choose to forget about their meaningless egos and get rid of their mere (political and religious) BELIEFS in favor of the DESIRE for objective reality?

In this unfolding tragedy everyone is quick to blame BP, and while they do share some responsibility, the vast majority of blame goes to the british and american governments for OKAYING such wreckful behavior in the first place.

I am sorry but you don't go dig for oil offshore(5,000ft deep) without having any serious contigency plans in case of disasters. Disasters do happen regardless how hard you try to prevent them but the response of the american government to all this has been non-adequate to put it mildly.

I fear it was a planned disaster to bring down america and install the NAU and the AMERO currency. The european nobility is desperately trying to bring america down to par with canada and mexico for the NAU to have any chance of "success". Of course even if they pull it off somehow, it will be anything BUT successful!

And I am gonna add your 100% correct about all this UNCALLED for secrecy. It was bad enough we had a cia and nsa not being accountable to anyone, after 2003 we have DHS following the same example.

The real cause? Enviro-whackos.

No drilling in ANWR (a vast wasteland) yet they are OK with drilling in MILE DEEP WATER?
