The significance of Gregory Bateson was summarized by Frijof Capra:
use a popular phrase, Bateson taught us how to connect the dots, and
this is critical today not only in science but also in politics and
civic life, as most of our political and corporate leaders show a
striking inability to connect the dots. For example, if we improved the
fuel efficiency of our cars by just 3 mpg, which could be very easily
done, we would not have to import any oil from the Persian Gulf. But
instead, they prefer to fight a war that kills tens of thousands of
innocent people, while the greenhouse gases produced by our cars
increase the force of hurricanes that make millions homeless and cause
billions of dollars of damages.
