The pictures are shocking. But it’s not just Nottingham. On my walks in the countryside we find fly-tipping, dog-pooh bags and litter everywhere. People drive up to a beautiful spot. Eat their lunch and dump the rubbish out of the car.
Has something happened during lockdown? Have people lost all their senses? Don’t they care? Have they become selfish slobs? It’s disgusting!!
There are lots of things that seeminsane to me, things I simply cannot understand.
I cannot understand how we have created a system where so few people benefit and so many suffer.
I cannot understand how we remain so complacent in the wake of death, war and poverty, created in order to place powerful minorities in even more powerful positions and put all the wealth created in the pockets of the rich.
I cannot understand how we remain gullible enough so that we remain distracted by complete dross, bought off with the promise that we can join them via a lottery ticket or hard work, or given sufficient to maintain a certain standard of living.
I cannot understand how the rich and powerful manage to suppress their consciences when they are responsible for the suffering of billions.
I cannot understand why we do not create a global system to ensure equality, stop wars and totalitarian systems, stop fundamentalism, protect the environment and put an end to the needless slaughter of wild-life and pollution and environmental destruction.
It is not beyond our intelligence to create something that would work!
This relentless machine is churning up the planet for the benefit of a psychotic few.
If you can just imagine for one minute the potential of human beings. If we were for once able to put aside the hatred, greed, selfishness, religious and political fanaticism, racism, and arrogance and pool our mental resources to deal with the world’s problems we could solve anything.
World Population crisis.
Third World exploitation.
Clash of political ideology.
There’s not a single thing that there isn’t a solution to. All it takes is the will, the financial resources, political will and unity.
I put my faith in the United Nations charter of Human Rights. If we do not start to think globally then we have no hope.
My greatest sorrow is for the billions of animals that we are decimating on a daily basis. We are butchering these wild animals for food, destroying their habitat, taking over their territory, eating their food, shooting them for pleasure and leaving them nowhere to go. I fear we are at a cross-roads. If we do not start to address the issues right now it will be too late for so many of them. I personally do not want to live on a world where we are responsible for mass extinction. It’s too horrible to contemplate.
Help form a positive zeitgeist. Help put it right before it is too late!
