While we all scramble, rush, stress and worry about the things we really have no control over, the illusion is that we do, the planet is speaking and we are not listening. This year we had to endure the inevitable political circus that takes place every four years as if anything will ever change based on a two party system that are no different, nor do they care about the people they represent. It’s pretty much just a dog and pony show, with the corporate elites running the show and pulling the strings, deception, greed and corruption, pretty much sums it all up for the political world we live in. So the elections came and went, with of course no hope for a better future for humankind.
The most important news of November 8 was barely noted, a fact of some significance in itself…. On November 8, the World Meteorological Organization delivered a report at the international conference on climate change in Morocco… [and] reported that the past five years were the hottest on record. It reported rising sea levels, soon to increase as a result of the unexpectedly rapid melting of polar ice, most ominously the huge Antarctic glaciers. Already, Arctic sea ice over the past five years is 28 percent below the average of the previous 29 years, not only raising sea levels, but also reducing the cooling effect of polar ice reflection of solar rays, thereby accelerating the grim effects of global warming…
The Republican Party has betrayed us because they will not help us to recognize the way that our brains work. The Democratic Party betrayed us too– by talking about everything BUT climate change. The Democratic Party too will not help us to recognize the way that our brains work. The Republicans and Democratic Party both cater to our most frightening evolutionary flaw: Our brains always look for short-term gain. We do not easily “see” long-term risk. Thus one party denies climate change while the other party is mired in identity politics that drown out consideration of the only really big question we face.
We are about to face a real equal opportunity, where no lives will matter, the movies and series we have been seeing on our tube will and can become more real than life, the apocalypse may be around the corner and nothing that we can do about it will change that.
it’s not going to matter what your point of view is on anything else. What’s on Netflix and a new dating app you like won’t save you. Gender issues? Won’t matter. Race? Same.
In the age of Google and Facebook “making the world a better place” we got Trump. Message to Silicon Valley “Innovators”: shut up now. You are part of the problem, not the solution… to anything that is besides increasing your own bank accounts and delusional egos. Disruption is bullshit. It’s done nothing for us. With you guys we now have the worst situation humankind ever faced and the worst president-elect ever. With you guys, we have a pacified population hooked on your tech devices. Many didn’t even bother to vote. So much for engagement.
To Mother Earth, no lives matter. There’s only one fight that counts now: the Republican Party’s planned gang rape of the planet must be stopped and then reversed. The only question that matters now is this: What’s Plan B for destroying the Trumped Republican Party– before it kills us all?
I believe the only way to get ourselves out of this predicament is to stop the division and battles we all create regarding our differences, and start to look at the bigger picture here. Everyone is so worried about their entitlement, fetish, needs and equality, what will we all do when your biggest concern will be where you sleep, what you will have to eat and how to stay alive, now that’s a concept. I believe these were things we dealt with before we became “civilized”. Have we really made progress or did we regress? Does one particular group of people matter over another? Does this self-entitlement bring us any productive outcome other than continue more of the same which is divided and they will conquer? They meaning the elites who like how things are and are not thinking with reason, but only thinking about their wealth, wellbeing and gaining power. The creation of belief and financial systems to continue the rat race, confusion and overall state of imbalance is not at all created by coincidence, but instead by design.
