in the end something like this is absolutely worthless. why?
you can't control it!
One person can't right the wrongs in the world, several thousand can't, etc. Everytime something like this is posted, you can't do anything about
The way I see it, the only way you can do anything about it is to entirely shut your life down. abandon your house, car, material goods, strip naked
and go live in the woods hunting animals with rocks (err, but that's harmful!)
so maybe you just eat leaves, but wait those are living things
all people can do is control their small sphere of influence. volunteer at a library. assist the elderly. work for a non corrupt animal rescue
somewhere..... pick trash off the side of the road.
When you think about it, *everything* you touch/consume is going to be the product of someones misery. from the worker who made it to the slave worker
who sold it to you, stocked it on the shelf for you etc etc....
the only difference that sets either worker apart is probably language.... all are going to worry about how to make bills, provide for a family,
I do the best I can to put dollars elsewhere. I hate walmart with a passion, and I rarely if at all shop there anymore. Their death can't come fast
enough for me. The workers are already unemployed in the job (having to go on public assistance WHILE working there is not a job at all!) so if they
get fired tommorrow they aren't really missing anything....
People just have to learn you can't control every little thing on the planet...
Hell, if you think about it, you could be causing "stress/hurt/etc" to your neighbor next door. You purchase a new car or a new lawn decoration, and
maybe they feel pain because they can't afford to decorate the house or own a new car... See where I am going here?
It's the small legacy you leave that counts, not what you consumed all through your life! did you touch your familys life? maybe a animals? assisted
the elderly? and so forth....
