I’m continually astounded by the lack of personal accountability in our society. Finding someone who is willing to accept responsibility for something seems like a rare gem. Unfortunately there are too few of them gems and they are likely underappreciated, unacknowledged, and underpaid. Those people are what holds our society together.
I’m not voting for him and I hope you won’t either. Write in the candidate of your choice. Because, clearly, neither party is interested in nominating a candidate worthy of a vote.
Fuck all this.
Apparently things have to really hit rock bottom before enough people wake up. A lot of people have awakened! Obviously! And that’s fantastic! But the dead weight at the other end of the spectrum is still in deep sleep. Well, get ready, because the alarm’s about to go off and you can’t snooze it. 🙂 Go fuck yourself. You’ve held us back for far too long. Enough is enough.
CNN: Taylor Swift calls sale of her music catalog her ‘worst case scenario’.
Our concept of “property” is almost ridiculous.
- The citizens of this planet are governed increasingly by the wealthy elite through corporate control of governments including the tragically hilariously, fraudulently undemocratic United States of America, Inc.
- The environmental crises we are experiencing need to be addressed immediately if it isn’t already too late in order to prevent this planet from being uninhabitable by human beings.
- The wealthy elite have clearly known for a long, long time that these environmental crises have been on the horizon and have chosen to continue their path of greed and destruction.
- The wealthy elite are obviously increasingly prepared to abandon the concept of preserving human life on Earth in the interest of their own preservation in some form, either in the shrinking number of habitable places on Earth or on extraterrestrial platforms such as orbital communities, colonies on other planets they are able to reach.
It is up to us to come up with our own solutions, to engage with these challenges before us, to raise up our voices, to connect with each other and work together to regain control of life on Earth. This is not science fiction or far-off speculation. This is right now. This has been happening since Christopher Columbus. And as with most problems, it seems, it would be far better to address it now rather than waiting even later and later and later. It only gets messier the longer we wait. We’ve already been asleep for far too long. As Rage Against the Machine implores us, WAKE UP.
The phrase “collapse aware” has entered my vocabulary. It will probably enter yours before too long also. 🙂 And that’s okay! Everything’s okay. But okay doesn’t equal easy.
We’ve tried this way of life, this method of structuring our societies, our nations, our time, our energy, our relationships, our land, our property; for a long time, long enough, long enough to know that it isn’t working. But we aren’t stopping it now are we. 🙂 No. We are continuing down the path of ruin despite the ceiling falling down on our heads the entire time.
Why are we persisting in a failed effort? That isn’t necessarily important to know right now. I suggest that what we should do is recognize our situation , create a new plan, and then execute the plan.
