Why worry about some imaginary biblical apocalypse, when the Apocalypse of industry is already spread upon on Earth before us?

From West Virginia to California, North Dakota to Texas, all across this “great” country, industry is Poisoning the air we breath, the water we drink, the animals we eat, and the land we sow, as we toast to their personal short-term “success” and our own collective long-term loss.

The inertia of our Stupidity has taken us well past the line of the reasonable and may have already sealed our fate.

From millions of gallons of spilt jet fuel in New Mexico, to flammable tap water in North Dakota, Texas, and Pennsylvania, from arsenic drenched fields in the American Southeast, to underground potentially radioactive trash fires in the Midwest, we have allowed our precious environment to be highjacked by corporate Greed and political Malfeasance.

Sadly I see little evidence that any of this will be changing in the near future, in fact we seem to be doubling down rather than walking away from the Gamble.

If we continue to allow ourselves to be highjacked by insatiable corporate Gluttony and seemingly willful Oblivion, we continue to spit in the face of our children and destroy any hope for their future success.

Until we recognize the inherent evil created by our obsession with short-term profiteering and alter our collective course, we will continue to push our environment past its ecological limits, and continue to lessen our children’s ability to survive here at all.

Please, let us find our “better senses”, let us come together as one world community, and finally agree that capitalism is simply not working and never will.

Never in all of my life have I felt so mentally, physically, and emotionally Exhausted as I do right now. And never in all of my life have I seen so clearly that the cause for much, if not all, of this Suffering, is money, and the unyielding Desire for more that it inevitably seems to create.

It has been said that money is the root of all evil, and never have I felt this so keenly as I do right now.

I know of nothing in the Universe more Corrupting then the pursuit of cash. Even in the most basic monetary exchange you have set up a situation for Suffering and Corruption:

On one side of the transaction, you have someone wanting to keep as much of their money as possible, while on the other side, you have someone who wants to take as much money as possible. This creates an undeniable tension between the monetary participants. Two people, each doing their best, to take advantage of the other.

This is no way to create a healthy, safe, trusting, sustainable community. The only thing money has the ability to create is communal chaos: neighbor vs. neighbor. A planet of individuals each endlessly trying to take advantage of the others.

There exists but one way to survive as modern humans: together. And the only way that we can come together as a world community is if we can cure ourselves of this monetary-Madness.

Over the last few thousand years, money has corrupted us in countless ways and created incalculable amounts of Suffering and mental, physical, and emotional Damage. Its capacity for Corruption and Destruction seemingly endless. So dangerous and wide-spread is money’s Corrupting influence, that the entire Planet is now in danger of losing it’s ability to even create, let alone sustain, Life!

This is Outrageous!!! And perhaps the only thing more Outrageous is the fact that in the face of such Obvious Inequalities, Fear, and Hatred continually created by money, we cannot seem to even comprehend, let alone discuss, any possible alternatives without Great Resistance.

Money is time, nothing in life is free, the man with the most toys wins: these are the Demented  slogans of our day, these are the symptoms of a Diseased mind.

Together we Survive, apart we Suffer. Money will never have the ability to bring us together, it only has the ability to tear us apart.

 

I’ve been having some difficulties in writing something new that isn’t drenched in Negativity, so rather than spread the Dark Clouds of my current Frustrations, here are some nifty lyrics to a song I wrote a few years back…

 

We ride about on this Mystery Train, We see the sights going by

We do our best to relinquish the Pain, Of living life as a Lie

Most every stop we remain in our seats, Too petrified for outside

We sit and pine up some marvelous feats, To take the place of our lives

 

But rather than living with dream and regrets, Why not take a little stroll outside

And put away all of these sensible bets, And let us take another ride

 

To a place where we all know what’s right, And can see it through our mind

The state of being the Radiant Light, A state above and beyond time

The human organism acting as One, Feeling Peace from all sides

Brothers and sisters embracing as One, No longer national pride

 

And then we will finally realize the Joy, That lead us in to newer land

We’ll laugh and sing as we see through the ploy, And find we have a better plan

 

And then we’ll understand there’s more to this life, Then sense of security

No longer needing a placating fight, To live peacefully free

We’ll live peacefully free,

Oh so peacefully free

 

And all we’ve had is all we’ll have, If we never find another train

And realize that these lives we have, Are more than some economic gain

 

I’m trying hard not to rationalize, This living life in disguise

I’m trying hard just to trudge through the lies, And look through Universal Eyes

We’ll look through Universal Eyes,

We’ll look through Universal Eyes
