Do We Ever Tire of Being Foolish?

We just spent big money to blast a levee so flood waters could destroy at least 130,000 acres of Missouri farmland to save a town that has been moving out since the 2000 census. I looked up Cairo, Illinois to discover it went from about 3600 people in the 2000 census to around 2800 in 2010. I couldn't find any major industry there and considering the drop in the housing market, compared to land to raise crops, I just can't figure out what the powers that be were thinking. There was time to consider this. The entire town had already been evacuated. There was no life at risk!!! What is wrong with the decision makers at this time? I heard this morning that it may be years before the farm land is tillable again to produce anything. What have we become? Where are our priorities? All the people have left safely, the town has been dwindling for the past several years, and we've wiped out thousands upon thousands of acres of farm land that would have produced and continued to produce for what? man made STUFF??? Or the flip side . . . Our foolish arrogant materialism has finally landed us in judgment . . .
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. New Testament
For thus hath YHWH said, The whole land shall be DESOLATE . . . Prophet of Holy Scripture
