the truth is upsetting
the truth shall set us free.
the yes – no guide to life
the flow chart of what we are going to do
and how we are going to do it
was a bit more simple
that the very first guidepost each question had to go through was asked & answered through the earth’s gate
what i mean to say is this
take a styrofoam cups
yes or no
does it break down?
okay then we’re not going to make them.
but we need to have insulated carriers for transporting organs here and there – what to use?
how about mushroom foam? or hemp foam?
yeah, but (someone in the back of the audience peeps up) what about all the styrofoam factory workers?
how are they going to pay their rent, huh?
let there be seamless change
let the company transition to mushrooms (or whatever truly-compostable-breakdownable material) while keeping them on the payroll
just as Malden Mills did when a fire burned down their factory and they paid their workers while they rebuilt the factory…
though that doesn’t have a so-called happy ending – what if the rest of us pitched in to support everybody…?
community-stylie. kickstarter, indigogo, etc.
the law that puts shareholders before the earth has to change.
i don’t know which law it is
memory (not always reliable) tells me that it was put into place by Mr. Dick
Cheney that if a public traded company can increase its profits to the shareholders, it by law has to be sold to a company that wants/has the ability to buy it out.
no more of that
the earth comes before shareholders
what the HELL is a shareholder
we are ALL shareholders
shareholding this planet together
with every wise & foolish decision & action we take.
the earth has to be the Law, the Say, the Gate that our both highly impactful & piddly human activities have to go through.
does it harm?
yes? well, then NO.
find another way.
does it harm?
no? great. go for it.
and none of this bullsh*t like with hydrofracking with all the people and agencies saying it doesn’t do any harm.
tell you what.
let’s get some of that flammable Pennsylvania water flowing in the shareholders and hydrofracking creator’s homes and see if they’ll willingly drink it.
i could not go to sleep
without first posting something
something after seeing this
the plastic could somehow be collected
from the oceans
gathering it back up
our ingenious brains can find a way to gather it up
all that plastic could be made
for all the children
who are worker/slaves in so-called third world countries
making our clothing for “cheap”
they could be set free
(and perhaps, training us here in the states, to also be expert tailors & seamstresses)
on playgrounds made from recycled plastic
allowing the seabirds, the sea life
to swim, to live, to fly
with earth as the guide, the gate, the ultimate yes/no decider
we can find our way home.
