Philosophy Discussion of the Month
Industrialization requires many resources. Most of the resources that it requires are perishable but it is geopolitically infeasible for a country not to industrialize. The question is posed to industrialize do we throw away our long term future so that we can have short term stability? Will the sacrifice of our short term stability have an impact on the long term future? To clarify, if a country that has a concern for the long term future gives way to countries that don't by not industrializing will that not have a worse impact on the long term future?
