So here we are, one year later. Same old nonsense, same old B.S. Same old wars, same old corporate profiteering, same old apathy and consumerism, and less living nature, less resillience, less diversity, and less species.
Some folks tell me I am off-topic, off my rocker, a dreaming idealist, or that my opinions are less valid or less important than theirs. Opinions are opinions and we are ALL entitled to our own whirled views and world views. It's just too bad that our lives and actions and inactions are destroying the environments which support all life.
We all profess, but at the end of the day, for most of us, it is just too much trouble to stand up for and change our whirled. Too much work. Let someone else, someone smarter, like the corporate folks, or the politicians take care of things. Folks who have the interests of "We, The People" and future health, or "justice," beyond protection of individual empire and profit,at heart.
Oops. Sorry about that, future. Money and stuff are just more important.
Let's go for a drive. Let's catch a plane. Hey, let's consume the earth, and leave NOTHING for anybody or anything in the future.
Shame on us, Really.
Just what are we doing to help? What ARE we giving back? To Nature, yes with a capital N, or to life?
Gee, how often do we consider or think about the Gulf spill, Fukushima, or just where all the "stuff" we consume comes from, or goes to? How many of us triple bag everything in plastic, and throw it in the trash can? We even consume, just to help us throw our trash away. Where does it go? There is no "away."
How often do any of us consider the once-living environments, which are made into lifeless and toxic landfills to produce our mostly disposable, non-repairable, and made-to-break products? We demand cheaper and cheaper costs, effectively making slaves of the producers and the sellers, as we seem to only care about $ profits, for CEOs, and shareholders. Meanwhile, living or livable wages? Oops...
We care and think even less than nothing about Nature, or any other life, which IS the resources of our products, which we reduce to a $ value. All of the earth is here, for us to exploit, even each other, all for a buck.
Go ahead and look over the next hill or valley, to see the clear cuts, the strip mines, the fishless oceans, or the plastic continental gyre of "garbage" floating in the oceans.
I suggest to you all, that alive and whole, living Nature is the only real security, wealth, or salvation. Not our Office Of Homeland Insecurity, or the endless wars. A lack of education certainly is not security.
Join me as a N.O.O.P.
Not On Our Planet.
No more Wars. No more Fracking. No more Nukes. No more GMOs. No more valuing money over everything, including a future for anyone's children. No more B.S.
Take our heads out of the sands, out of the televisions. Take our asses out of our cars and our consumerly entitled myopic attitudes of, "Me First and to heck with everyone and everything else."
Yes, WE can, so why don't we?
Yea, yea, I know, we are powerless, it will never happen. Nothing we can do about it. Yea, yea. Government's WILL never sell magazines or have a bake sale to fund the destructive profiteering wars. Certainly not until WE get off our behinds and quit accepting the world as it is, corrupt, and lawless. At least, lacking in laws which are based on building real security, or creating actual justice. Oops. Just the way it is. Moo along. Let someone else with more brains......
The Kings, Gandhis, and Jesuses of this whirled, can only point the way. Only we, can put hearts and legs on it. And no, all the professing insanity, has little or nothing to do with the actual words or messages.
Messages, such as, Love your neighbors (like all of them), take care of each other, etc. But of course, the professing nutjobs, and politicians. They are all a non-choice and a waste. Oops!
But, then, I guess, we really do value wars, and lifeless environmental wastelands, where our future used to be. Why else, would we give away our power? Our hearts, or our dreams?
IT is one Hell in the future, we seem to be building and creating, and for what? So we can have ours, at the expense of every other living thing and environment?
So we can have a Coke and a bag of Doritos?
Oh yea, Fuckuishima, give this article a read.
