HOLY FUCKING SHIT! PLANET EARTH TRYING TO KILL US ALL!!!!!

Posted by Ross

You know what scares me? Desperation. Because it's one of those purely human traits that leaves a path of pure devastation in its wake. You know what scares the holy living crap outta me? 5 billion desperate people.

Corruption brings out the worst in humanity. It must stop or this planet will continue to find new ways to kill us.

And before we are wiped from existence, we will be rendered a planet of very desperate people. Billions of desperate people. Many with guns. Some with nukes.

If the only things we see are death and destruction, then those will be what we create.

But if we can unite around a vision that makes up happy, that gives up hope, that makes us proud to be human, we can bring out the best in people.

What we need is a global paradigm shift. And I know what you're saying, quite cynically I might add, that we people keep getting worse and we're too greedy and too lazy and too damn crazy to ever actually make any changes whatsoever for the better.

But consider this:

If you read the lovely book ISHMAEL by Daniel Quinn, you will be reminded that we humans have lived much longer on this planet in harmony with nature than we have raping and destroying it, and overpopulating to every corner of the globe.

What if the true evolutionary advantages of our big beautiful brains and our nifty opposable thumbs are to give us the vision and the ability, for the sake of the survival of the species, to adapt in a way that encourages our planet, our home, to heal.

That can only be accomplished with humble and incorruptible leadership, which certainly, sadly, is not the climate of the time. Hopefully it will be soon, when, instead of Karl Rove and I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby whispering the nation's agenda into the president's ear like some horrible two-headed Grima Wormtongue, it will be someone a little more reasonable, someone a little more in touch with the peeps, someone like... Pat Robertson.

God, we are so fucked.
