Our natural tendencies make it impossible for any of the other isms to work either. We need to vote in Bloomberg for Pres. Then he can ban Sodas all
around, and all other sugary drinks, or any other unhealthy substances. Yep, bacon and any other fried foods too. Then he'll start with guns and move
forward to anything that's disposable. In the end, they'll ban advertising all together, because only things we don't absolutely need are
advertised... We'll all have a pretty little cage, eat crackers and be happy.
For the record I am absolutely not a fan of Bloomberg.
Religion can't help us, government can't help us, even being educated doesn't seem to have much of an effect. The problem is we just don't know
when to stop and we take way too much without consideration of the natural world.
Until we start literally beating the idea into each other's heads that it's suicidal to live this way, we are doomed. We are like carpenter ants
eating away at the inside of the only tree, munching away without knowing they'll all die once they've eaten everything. Somehow we inherited the
ability to make our world a small place and we consume it in such a big way.
What is capitism but the freedom to consume at any rate you can manage? It's like a free pass to go out there and build a machine that consumes
faster than anyone else's so that you will be most successful. Pardon my French but it's F-ing ridiculous. The only answer to this whole absurd mess
is so out of reach from anyone's consideration that one can't even get started talking about a real solution lest he loses his audience.
Our economy is based on how much of a rate that we consume. If we really wanted to build a stable and healthy foundation for our children and theirs,
then the first thing we would do is take our prized economy up off it's pretty little mantel and we would smash it on the floor. It's failed us and
our children and it deserves to be smashed to pieces.
Don't listen to me I don't know anything, but it sure felt good to say that.
