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.

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.
