    Monsanto and, sadly I guess, Bill Gates too exemplify the consequences of having an exploitative mindset. In this they are not unique our whole culture being beholden to this mindset.

    The problem is that an exploitative mindset is very often apparently successful but this success is only in the short term in the long term it is disastrous. We are currently beginning to experience this truth through the effects that climate change is producing. Unfortunately the holders of exploitative mindsets are bemused by their apparent successes and think that more exploitation will solve the problems emerging as a result of existing exploitation.
