Many Horse-people have a vision – To save America’s Wild Horse Herds from harm and even death. Then return them to America’s Public Lands – This is the Vision of the Majority of Americans. . .
Occam’s Razor – the theory explained simply: Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily. We are to admit no more causes of natural things than such as are both true and sufficient to explain their appearances. The most useful statement of the principle for scientists as well as others is “. . . when you have two competing theories that make exactly the same predictions, the simpler one is the better.”
“. . .or in the only form that takes its own advice. . . “Keep things simple!”
The fact humans have a vision of something, often very significant to us all and within all of our lives, that vision should never be lost. But the universe has a push-n-pull complex of many things. These things also do this to many people’s vision. Perceptions are irrelevant here, as well as life background, education, or even life-style. As it is the vision that pushes folks forward, and often encompasses something much better, far superior than anything within their life. Expectations abound!
It is when a person’s vision lacks something, which reality or the very basis it is established upon may be false – a deviation from the simple, to so complex it becomes something of non-value. Large corporations, government agencies, and simply large groups have this restraint, a death-grip so to speak on an individual’s visions of what is – and promotes what cannot be. As within largeness or vastness an individual spirit, vision, and unique traits are ripped away; then replaced by the mundane, fitting in, following the group, and apathy soon follows, which by the way is all promoted and awarded. The vision, sadly, is lost in total.
It is at this point, for example, government agencies of today, or corporate structures involving many personnel, dislikes vision – dislikes unique and especially a personal vision of right compared to wrong. As a vision, it becomes simply an unworkable methodology. It is then, within this grasp of imitation of nothing, that minds are lost, decisions made upon narcissism or worse, greed.
Then to cover up errors, many more problems created, and exponentially and similar to compounding logarithmically (i.e. Einstein’s Theories of the expansion of the Universe), just as nature would have it, more problems abound. But nature is also designed for the ability to break things down to its simplest components, eventually to the core, or eventually to a single component that drives things forward. This can be positive — or it can be negative.
We can look for many resolutions, but it always comes down to the bare minimum, the simplest – Occam’s Razor. The fact is resolution very simple, and within the Wild Horse situation of today, very simple — government agencies and people are the problem, not the Wild Horses!
Simply take the Wild Horses out of holding, place them back onto Public Lands – Obey the laws that have been given to us over the past decades – whereas, sharing Public Lands and not destroying them remain the priority, and all is resolved.
One must ask, how did we all become so convoluted, so problematic, that now it is many horse advocates that are piling on and adding to the BLM and their already tremendous pile of created problems, has become reality. Within this realm, and beyond all else, the simplest and is and remains by far the most obvious right now in time — America’s Wild Horses face imminent Death! — John Cox – With A Vision-Saving Horses Not Hurting Them
