... Sustainability is not a soccer match with penalty shoot outs.
Winning by a political penalty shoot out (a few percentage points?) requires even more discipline thereafter to not be under the illusion of the 'democratic' right to a 'winner take all' ... the Political Cup needs to be proportionately shared!
When one party acts unfairly towards another no amount of environmentally Green behaviour will achieve Sustainability:
"The turning point in Mr. Morsi's presidency came on Nov. 22, when he asserted unchecked executive authority through a constitutional declaration and, weeks later, rammed [a] constitution through to ratification. When mass protests erupted in response, Mr. Morsi and his [party] colleagues dispatched [party] cadres to attack the protesters, and seven people were killed in the fighting."
When the Nationalists took power in South Africa, in the 1940s, albeit in a 'whites only democracy', they used 'constitutional' changes to entrench themselves and smother democratic processes ... Apartheid was the result, for decades, even though a very large minority (perhaps as much as a third?) of whites were not in favour of Apartheid.
Until the holistic demand of Sustainability is recognised, as a totality, the only sustainable phenomenon will be chaos and disaster.
