Every day, millions of people do evil. They do deliberate damage to our water, our air, and the food we eat. They do it in the name of profit. But what profit is there in that? If you have enough what do you want with billions more? Even the 1% can’t escape the damage done, their manicured gardens, will succumb to the blistering sun, their bottled water supply will eventually run out The gardeners, maids, servants, merchants and suppliers will of course die first, leaving them to count their money alone.
To go into our future together, how do we circumscribe such terrible power? Powers that prey on all our needs? What do you say to the power that says: “Would your children like to eat?” “Would you like to ease your mother’s pain?”
I say, we go to each other, we go to beauty, we sign nature’s petition…
But we must do it soon, the last few centuries have not been kind to our planet and those with a longer world view must prevail over the profiteering class or no one gets out alive.
