DON"T DO ANYTHING!
Don't we all wish we could do something to help the earth...the environment...nature?
Over ar Red's Page she posted a video by Chicago band Rise Against with a quote of theirs about their video and they ask..."What should we do about the earth?"
I say, don't do anything!
It's what we are always doing that gets us into trouble. We mess with the world and each other.
It's time to STOP doing stuff.
People always think, the way we have done things hasn't worked out, let's get a new program.
No more programs.
They don't work. They've never worked, why would they start now. No programs!
Don't build new subdivisions. Live in an urban centre.
Don't drive a car. Take public transit. You can read a book while travelling!
Don't shop. We don't even use half the stuff we own, why buy more stuff? Take a break for a year.
If you do need to shop, buy something hand made.
Trade things with your neighbours? Bartering?
Obviously, we still believe in locking up free food and selling it back to ourselves...so you'll have to buy food...but buy organic. Try to grow a plant or two in your house, even if its just herbs. Make a greenhouse in your garden or deck.
Take a small step in cutting back the agricultural land robbing wildlife. Don't buy wheat products, rice, potatoes, corn. These Frankenfoods are almost useless nutritionally. Drop them from your diet and investigate wild life food sources. Protein that lives free...non-agricultural. I'm not saying this will be easy, But start to find out how your food lives. ( by dropping useless nutrition sources like grains and corn...you will also feel benefits of more energy and less weight, plus...it takes a gallon of oil to grow corn). You can totally have a beautiful varied diet by focusing on protein, and nutritionally high value foods like lettuce, brocoli, cabbage, cauliflower and berries. You don't need starchy crud like noodles and rice and bread. Let some animals have their land back.
Don't support governments and politicians you don't believe in. Besides, politics have never done anything to help people. Politicians are supposed to be our secretaries. Stop treating them like gods. Can they read? Can they type? Can they pay the bills we want them to pay? Can they answer phones? Otherwise they are useless to us.
People have the power.
Let's do nothing and show them who is boss!
