Re my previous post featuring ARUNDHATI ROY
In my previous post featuring Arundhati Roy, an interesting & poignant comment appeared in the group ‘Practical Lawful Dissent’ from David Hands –
“The Corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they’re selling………….. he said, on a Corporate built computer, using a Corporate Operating System, via a Corporation owned internet connection.
I admire the sentiment, but think you’ll find it somewhat harder than you imagine to break free.”
Of course, David is absolutely right. We have dug ourselves into one ginormous hole. Nevertheless, I felt it warranted a response –
Somewhat harder? David, I see the irony & I certainly take your point but please, do not for one minute think I’m not entirely aware of the enormous obstacles we face. I grant you too, I have more than a fair idea of what has to be done to even begin to put things right. We’ve spent a few thousand years getting ourselves into this mess! Thus it’s inconceivable to imagine there isn’t a massive price to pay before we can go forward so that decisions are finally made for the greater good. I’ve written several articles over the years explaining exactly how & why this particular life-form has, almost inevitably, reached the predicament we now find ourselves in. Much of it’s down to our evolution & physiological make up – the fact mankind’s rise to dominance occurred in but a geological hearbeat yet in comparison our DNA altered by just 0.1% every 100,000 years ie at the pace of a snail’s funeral. Yes indeed. Inevitable….. & Nature doesn’t care if we destroy ourselves. There will be no higher order shedding of cosmic tear. Nevertheless, there are rules. I’ll endeavor to dig into the archives.
