We are killing the world, Citizens. We, our country, our corporations, our Wall Street, our holy capitalism. . . .
We certainly have no right to be free from the natural, predictable consequences of our actions, be they a cruel, inhumane economy, destruction of physical property, loss of life — certainly nothing we haven’t already inflicted upon the world many times in many ways with virtual impunity. Consequences are inevitable, as is justice. Eventually, and it may be after humans are long gone, all of this will go away, this pollution, this ruin, this disharmony, this ecological devastation. The tragedy is that we have had the power to make it go away all of our lives. All we have to do is choose a different path. We all have choices. We all choose our own path. We all decide what happens.
Wake up. Stand up. Do what’s right no matter what.
