I think that most of us, with even a passing philosophical fancy and eye for current events, could agree that Humanity, as is currently “organized”, is in Deep, Deep Trouble.

The Signs Of Our Ultimate Undoing are all around us, cast over our Entire Planet from the Top of our Atmosphere to the Bottom of our Oceans, and at the Heart of our Problem is a Willful Moral Oblivion and Blind Technological Hubris that is quickly sowing the seeds of our own, and much of the rest of Life on Earth’s, Destruction.

Up until now, we’ve basically just been “winging it” as far as the Future is concerned, this combined with an Intense Overconfidence in our ability to do just about anything, such as accurately predicting the supposedly benign consequences of our Technological Hubris, has led us down a very Dangerous and Deadly path.

We continue to Wrongly Think that the “Profits” of industry are more important than the Health and Happiness of the population at large. We continue to Wrongly Think that Economic Concerns are more Important than Environmental Concerns.

This is a Grotesque and Deadly way to interpret our Reality and is causing Environmental and Political Havoc on a Global Scale.

We ARE the Stewards of This Planet! We Accept This Responsibility and Work Toward Living more Sustainable Lives or we go the way of the dodo and become nothing but fading memory.

Our Obsessions with Money and Merchandise HAVE TO END! If We Are To Walk Hand In Hand Into A More Welcoming Future. THE ECONOMY MUST BE MADE TO SUBMIT TO THE NEEDS OF OUR ENVIRONMENT AND ALL THE LIVING CREATURES DEPENDENT UPON HER FOR ANY HOPE OF COLLECTIVE EXTENDED SURVIVAL.

We MUST Open Our Eyes, Our Minds and Our Hearts WIDE! The Instant We Choose NOT to continue worshipping at the altar of big business, Is The Instant Of Our Redemption!

WE CAN!

REINVENT OUR WORLD.

We Simply Have To CHOOSE To Do It.

A Sinking Ship

Not to put too fine a point on it, or sound overly pessimistic, but I believe we are both economically and ecologically SCREWED!!! But perhaps worst of all: few, if any of us, seem to really give a crap, few, if any of us, want to admit we might be on a sinking ship.

The mindless media machine has no interest in helping us overcome our mass-denial. Its only real interest is self-interest, its only obsession: the manipulation of imaginary numbers, and its only job: to continually misinform the masses via “fair and balanced” infotainment.

Our government, having been sold to the highest bidder long long ago, is impotent to any pleas for change, for its only interest is also self-interest, its only obsession: the manipulation of imaginary numbers, and its only job: to pillage the social coffers as quickly as they possibly can.

Our tremendous ability to be short-sighted, combined with the diseased attitude of the “virtue of selfishness” is quickly sealing our fate, and few of us show any real signs of honest frustration or willingness to fight for any alternative.

While any attempt at prognostication will always be fuzzy at best, in my mind, our children’s future is looking bleak at best.

Will our unhealthy love of money and infotainment and the excessive Greed and Denial it promotes ever be overcome? Our children’s children are probably hoping it will be. I know my fingers crossed!

We are indeed the living dead. The zombie apocalypse is long come and we have all been bitten.

As we blindly spread over every available landscape, lustfully consuming everything in sight, raising zombie children taught to always exceed the greed endlessly through time, we destroy every future possibility we can, as quickly as we can.

We choose to see basically every life, even our own, as Grotesquely Profane. We treat our Magical Eden like any random garbage dump, or secret mass grave, with little, if any Respect, and grow Noisy children quite Insane with Fear, Greed, Hatred, and Misinformation as their foundation to otherwise grow almost completely wild.

It would seem we have destroyed nearly anything Truly Sacred long long ago and worship only distorted idols now. We claim our martyrdom through this or that often thoughtless ritual and plead innocent while constantly acting like little Devils.

We ask why should I care about other peoples children? Other peoples lives? Why should I wonder how my “smart” phone ever came to be? How it was made and by whom? Why should I think about every “Made In China” label in my home as their people “breathe” unbreathable poisoned air and die of lung cancer at ever increasing rates?

Why should I ask about the innocent women and children repeatedly dying at the hands of video game playing american “solders” in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and every other place in the world we fly and fire armed military drones? Why should I ask questions about the need for constant military intervention abroad in the name of some imaginary “security” state back home?

Why should I question the need for a government to constantly spy on its own people as well as all other people in the world? Why should I ask about corporate Greed, environmental Malfeasance, and “white-collar” prosecutorial Oversight, when there’s so many shiny flashing Distractions right over there?

Questions are the Enemy according to the prevailing media Madness, at least anything penetrating through the typically prescribed rind-surfing “political” debates and cartooned “entertainments”. The media wishes to put everyone into a deep mindlessly consuming stupor. It is the original zombie and it represents our endless Desire to Consume and a Pathological inability to be satisfied.

I am here to state quite unequivocally that Questions are the antidote to the zombie Apocalypse currently ravaging our Gloriously Sacred Planet. Questions that demand our Attention cannot be ignored forever and they most certainly Deserve some honest Answering.
