Don't these atrocities have to meet their conclusion by a certain date?
Is it possible that these war, famines, diseases, need to be helped along? Speeded-up? Full throttle?
Is there a contingency plan in case these agents of demise do not work fast enough?
Why would anyone need a contingency plan? Why would there have to be a set deadline? Why worry about tomorrow when you can live for today? After all
that's the Western Way!
There is no real tipping-point for TPTB because if you have more wealth and power than you know what do with, you are already sufficiently protected
from war, disease, famine, and can hole up in your Underground Bunker indefinitely until the environment rectifies itself. Why should you be bothered
if the Billions of others peons that are on the planet have to suffer and die? No need to rush anything because that would cost money and they've got
to save up all the money they have to make more money. After all, they've got all the time in the world, and even if they don't have enough time,
there is nothing that money can't buy, including time itself.
There is no conspiracy to artificially bring about these things quickly as they don't need to be hastened along. They are happening sufficiently fast
enough for those who are in positions of power. The only conspiracies are the ones that everyone else thinks they see in trying to rationalize what is
happening while they are waiting for someone else to save them, blindly believing that those in power would actually concern themselves with helping
All sarcasm aside, if people really were concerned about such things, each and every person would be doing their part to solve these crises themselves
instead of expecting the Corporations or their Governments to do such for them.
People should be helping make their communities sustainable agriculturally. Local agriculture is far less damaging than industrialized agriculture,
and it requires far less oil to ship. Industrial agriculture is only meant to subsidize local agriculture, not replace it!
People should be promoting less beef in people's diets (you don't have to go to the extreme of becoming Vegetarian or Vegan, but either cut
consumption of beef and/or consider poultry and fish instead).
People should be decreasing their own carbon footprint while decreasing their dependence on products that utilize a significant amount of carbon to
Lastly, people should be promoting planned families, allowing for early terminations of pregnancy, teaching and distributing birth control, promoting
adoption (and easing the restrictions on adoption), and taking away financial incentives to have larger families than a couple can afford to raise
without financial assistance and welfare. Of course, this is a sensitive issue for many as it runs contrary to their religious edict "to be fruitful
and multiply", believing that these things are contrary to their religious beliefs.
The only real question, in such a case if people were to widely start acting in this manner, is it too little too late to really make a difference for
those of us who aren't TPTB?
But I find it difficult that TPTB would care, one way or the other, whether it happens today, next week, the month after next, five years from now, or
a decade from now. They would have neither the motivation to stop it, delay it, or accelerate it.
