Here we are in the ER, the doctors have wheeled in a new patient. She is Earth. She has been so very polluted that her prognosis is uncertain. Let us hope that her doctors are qualified in her biology and the biology of her lifeforms. Let us pray they aren't hacks who didn't study her at all.
The linguistics of the radical wire up logic and self control to empathy to root society in core values and promote cooperation. The linguistics of all varieties of extremism wire up emotional indifference to fear (and sometimes logic without empathy).
