i watched a docu/movie a couple of weeks ago with david suzuki and he said something interesting...(ok..many interesting things) but he said..the earth, the air, the water...life... is real...the economy which drives our world (and is currently destroying it and everyone who lives on it) is not real..it is just something we made up and then let it take over us...driving us and the entire planet closer and closer to extinction.
and he is right...but what do we do about it now?
how do we erase man's biggest mistake?
i have no idea.
probably the aboringinal races across the world could show us...but we spent generations destroying them and then stepped back to watch who was left to continue to destroy themselves....there are not many remaining with the knowledge and skills to live with nature in harmony.
anyway..in between worrying about discarded and unwanted family pets, vet bills, mortgage payments, and overdue insurence premiums..i have been thinking on this.
for all of the destruction and pain we have caused to not only every living thing this planet has ever held but to the very earth under our feet now...we have been the most globally destructive force in all of nature...so why do we still think the human species is at the very top peak of the evolution pile?
maybe it is time for us to admit that man was god's biggest mistake?...maybe some shameful humbleness and heartfelt regret could help us all right now?
my favorite saying from my gross out loving childhood...fine tuned globally to today...
we thought we were hot shit in a beer mug, but we are really only luke warm diarrhea in a leaky dixie cup....and our dixie cup is now falling apart.
Perhaps God was trying to do some population control but then we went ahead and invented artificial means of fertility.
