Our Invisible Enemies
It seems we all have the wrong mindset and our leaders are so heavily influenced by economic and industrial lobbyists, that we will all have to suffer the consequences. There are no if’s or butt’s about this. It is already happening and has been happening for the last one hundred years. Actually since the start of the Industrial revolution.
We have been as children with new toys, not aware of their short or long-term impact on our lives. Not only has the use of fossil-fuels carried heavy consequences for our entire environment and ecosystems; also the use of plastics, asbestos, pesticides and pharmaceutical residues are impacting our health and that of the World we live in. What we are leaving behind for all our children is nothing to be proud of. This not withstanding the amazing ignorance and arrogance we have displayed in these matters so far.
When we look at Fossil-fuels we see fast erosion of diversity in plant and animal life, both on Land and in the Oceans.
And since the fuel for our armies seems more important than our collective welfare, BP for example has already been granted new permits to drill in the Gulf of Mexico again. Even though the ecosystem has proven not to be recovered from the last spill they created. Even after 25 years this is also the case in the Exxon Valdez oil-spill. But who cares as long as money is being made, right? Not too mention the environmental results we are seeing from fracking as a way to find natural gas resources. In these methods we even allow oil-companies to pump high pressured polluted water into our soil, thereby contaminating ground water resources for generations to come. Rather smart as well don’t you think?! Oh we are so smart we Humans especially when profits are concerned. And the worst part is the lack of liability by these so called entrepreneurs (thieves & con-artists).
Now, .. our water. And more specifically our drinking water resources. What have we been doing there? Well as it turns out there also we have been creating a lasting problem for ourselves. Not only is the climate change creating Global mayhem by turning some areas into dry desserts and others into regularly flooded areas more than before; We have also polluted our drinking water with residues of the medical and plastic industries.
If we look at our natural wells and groundwater, they have been cumulatively inundated with ever growing amounts of hormonal residues like oestrogen and for example Medical Anti-depressant residues that are very hard to clean out of the water again, if at all! This now results in even bottled and tap-water being laced with these chemicals. This also is the case in the accumulation of pesticides in our water resources. And again we just go on doing what we do, in full knowledge of these factors. Now how intelligent is that?
Party on folks! No wonder our medical industry is growing and doing great economically. We are making ourselves sick beyond the point of no return. And still the powers at play say we are growing older & healthier than ever before. This is another full-out Lie! As are most sales-pitches now a days. The only thing that is happening is people growing ever more dependent on medication and treatment like junkies on heroine.
Our bodies are actual chemical vessels, and can withstand and detox from amazing amounts of chemical pollutants. However there are natural limits to what we can clean out of our systems and when our systems get overloaded we get cancers, alzheimer, parkinson, etc, etc.
And now to ad to all our past fuck-ups we have created the largest radioactive Ocean spill in the history of mankind. What Fukushima will leave behind in the Pacific Ocean is even worse than the Chernobyl or Hiroshima disasters. Generations to come will have to eat poisoned fish, generating even more cancers and mutations in our collective DNA make-up and that of the World around us. And who will go to jail or come to trial anywhere? When will we hold these major criminals responsible for their thievery and Global fraud of the people and our collective futures. If not now, than when?
We need to keep the Economical lobbyists away from our political-leaders and start holding these same leaders accountable. Now!Let the punishments start fitting the crimes, so we can finally accelerate into a more harmonious life-style and leave the old colonial ways behind us. It has to be done or,……….what do you think. Or don’t you dear to think any-more? Do you think you will still deserve the respect of your children when they grow up? Just asking, no need to get upset! Just act and finally do something, before we pass the point of no return. We have got the know-how. Now all we need is the effort. Join and become a true Global-citizen that lives local and thinks and acts global.
