WE are destroying OURSELVES, with our own hands.
I read this phrase all the time...and every time it's written, it's totally wrong.
'We' are not destroying 'ourselves' at all...'We' by and large have negligible impact on the Earth or it's systems.
'TPTB' on the other hand ARE polluting and raping the planet, driving the massive proportion of Humanity into what amounts to indentured servitude /
slavery and indigenous people are continually marginalised, their homes and habitats destroyed..all in the name of 'My bank balance/residence/vehicle
collection/holiday home(s)/business is significantly larger than yours' mentality.
When talking about those who don't give a toss for anyone or anything other than their own superiority over others, don't say 'We'..say
'They'...because 'We' don't get a say in what happens to the Earth in the least...'They' control it, exploit it and pocket their disgusting
We didn't drill into the gulf and cause the destruction of the eco system there...they did.
We didn't build and explode thousands of Nuclear bombs...they did.
We don't make war on civilians, using White phosphorous chemical weapons and Depleted Uranium (radioactive / dirty bombs) tipped munitions...they
We don't move into African, Asian and S. American countries, exploit the natural resources, while poisoning the local environment and
'They' make the policy, they put up the money and muscle, they are responsible.
If Humanity is going to be judged by an outside intelligence on it's 'performance' on Earth so far...the judgement will be confined to a relative
few people...about 1% of the people more or less!
The joke is on 100% of us though...since the 1% drag the rest of us along and down with them...'They' are actually losers, despite how 'large'
their wealth is or not, and unfortunately, the rest of us are too.
