It's getting harder and harder to avoid these confrontational topics. When I think about all the ways in which we have, and still are destroying this planet... thoughtlessly, carelessly. Driven by a thousand egocentric, materialistic desires for; wealth, affluence via consumerism, productivity equated to prosperity, ostentatious commercialism... greed, envy, power, dominance. For instance, there are biodegradable straws and food containers made of plant matter... Why are we still using plastic? Because it's cheaper for corporations to produce, and new technologies are the enemy of old business models and their money. These new technologies threaten the earnings of the old'Bis industrialist shareholders. And what is the corporation's main objective? To make as much money for their shareholders as possible... If the cost to purchase politicians, legally silence environmental technologies, purchase patents only to shelf them, fund scientific research projects that will skew results in their favor, and hire the best psychologists, and marketing teams to convince us to buy shit we don't need, with money we don't have to impress people we dont like, perpetuating planetary destruction... is more profitable to their bottom line, than changing or adapting... then that's what they do.
And that's where we're stuck... but we dont have to stay stuck. If we can think of a new way, a new way will be created... there's still time but not much... _______| |_________
