The older I get, the more it seems like the world is divided between people who create things and those who profit from them.

Artists, craftsmen, engineers . . . slaves — these people create the world we live in, both internally and externally. And they are preyed upon and harnessed by speculators and leeches like Wall Street investors, small-minded “managers” and white-male-capitalist-supremacists for their spark of life.

Thankfully this era seems to be nearing an end, either because its unsustainability is proving to be antithetical to human life on Earth, or because we are waking up and realizing that we all need to create and share that which we create in order to be happy human beings.

Governing Human Society on Earth

I think we’ve come to the point where any reasonable person would concede that what we’re doing isn’t working. There necessarily comes a time when there is no more time left to conduct studies; to have discussions; to debate trivialities into infinity; to convince or educate the ignorant and shallow and easily satisfied and incurious; to compromise yet further; to reach across the aisle. That time is upon us. It’s time to shift gears now. This is a binary change. On or off. Forward or backward. Thrive or wither.

There is no middle.

There is no half gear. Do you see a 1 1/2 gear on your car’s stick shift? You pick a direction and you follow it. You do not simultaneously follow one direction and another or else you will split yourself in two. Any idiot can see that.

We’ve so far gathered much information throughout our human history about ways human beings can thrive on this planet. We have way more information than is necessary to solve all of our problems! Do you understand that? However we have chosen not to act upon that information and pursue courses of action that truly allow us to thrive as a species and to thrive as a planet. Instead we have chosen to follow the moving target, the rabbit on the post, watch the same old show over and over again, tell the same old joke, perform the same old tradition. Instead of using what we’ve learned in order to move forward and better ourselves and our society and our circumstances and our understanding of the universe we have chosen instead to take all of that, fancy merely the shiny bits, sit on the couch, eat potato chips and watch TV and get fat and drunk and stupid and drive bigger and bigger trucks. Our coastlines are not collectively-owned celebrations of nature’s beauty and places to reflect and enjoy but staging areas for pushing more metal and plastic and oil and waste into the oceans, making them merely extensions of our mismanaged, exploitative, terrestrial roadways.

Sigh. It’s late and I’m tired so I’m going to go home. I’ll write more later maybe. πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ’œβœŒοΈπŸŒπŸŒŒπŸ¦„πŸŒˆπŸ‘½πŸ›Έ

If you donate money to me I’ll have more time and energy to think about and write about the solutions to all of these problems I’m identifying and outlining all over the place. If you find it too hard to figure out how to donate money to me let me know and I will improve the system. Thank you for your support and your eyeballs and your mind and your heart! πŸ™‚ If we work together we can turn this situation upside down and make it better.
