Hello there. If you are reading this, I am probably already dead.
It is 2013 and the world we inhabit is a truly messed up place. Governments have unprecedented power over the people, secrecy is at an all time high, civil liberties are being curtailed and the NSA is actively spying on every American citizen. Corporations run the world, money is the only true power, and the unholy alliance between the private sector and the government has been fully consummated. Central Bankers run a global monetary cartel while big private banks collude alongside them. The rich are kept rich, the poor kept poor, and the gap grows ever wider. The closer we get to Hayek’s ideal of unfettered capitalism and the more we worship money the further and further we get from our humanity and underlying nature as impermanent beings on this fragile planet. The Keynesian extreme of controlled economy also implies top-down big brother government to pull all the strings and keep dissidents in line. Both systems abuse their powers so long as money talks, and in our world money screams.
Our planet as we know it is changing. The environment which sustained us and enabled us to evolve to this point is dying. We are living outside of our means as a species and it will not last long. The ice caps are melting at an exponential rate, freshwater is flooding our oceans and water levels are rising. Temperature extremes and seasons are being exaggerated as summers become longer and hotter and winters become longer and colder. Weather patterns are shifting and our “natural” habitat is becoming smaller and smaller. The “Goldilocks Zone” is shrinking.
I am writing about these topics, and will cover many more, because I think these are things we need to talk about. I am so tired of the collective people sleeping their way through their lives. Working as wage slaves in a corporate job, running the same rat race and coming home at night unfulfilled, stuffing their brain full of garbage television and their stomach full of garbage GMO food.
Change is inevitable, it is the only real thing. Our world is changing. It is our job to make sure it changes in a way that supports life, instead of destroying it.
As governments seize more power, they give it directly to the psychopaths running the largest companies in the world. Personal Freedom is shrinking at an alarming rate and the doors are closing. We must force them all to realize that a government only has power because the people will it so. We must force them to realize that life on earth is not a consumer to be swindled or a product to be sold.
I will not stand idly by as our shared world is cut into pieces and sold to the highest bidder. Such power is not for men to wield.
Through a series of posts on this blog I seek to muster your courage, excite your mind to the possibilities, and incite your heart to action.
He is free who is unconquered. Let us all be the unconquered.
