What is at stake?

Many have commented about this recently, especially those trying to get elected.

What is at stake?

Lot's of things come to mind, but perhaps the most important is the FUTURE.

Of course, "the future" brings up numerous complex possibilities...

Personally, I don't think anyone really knows what's at stake. I don't, but I'm going to try...

let's see... the future. where's my sastun?

the future begins with the mind. for without the mind, the future is only entropy. So, what is at stake is OUR MINDS. (Now, that makes more sense to me.)

The mind is at stake. The mind *may not* exist without the body. Therefore, if the mind is at stake, then it follows that the body that supports the mind is at stake too.

So, what is at stake is our minds and our bodies. Well, that certainly influenced my vote...

but wait, things still aren't that simple. Human bodies require constant supplies of energy (nutrition), and regulated exposure to human waste (the more minimized, the better).

What is really at stake is our minds, bodies, and the environments that support our minds and bodies. But "environments"... boy, that word has baggage.

Don't get confused by the semantics. The point is, we all know too little about all of the above to secure our future.

So, what's at stake?
