On Selfishness & Money
Ok, I just read something today that has made me utterly disgusted. It involves our President.
I am sure you are all familiar with Global Warming and its affect on the Earth’s climate. Well, Mr. Bush has told European environmental ministers that he will NOT sign the Kyoto Climate Pact at Bonn, Germany because he does not want to “…harm the U.S. economy, which remains a critically important engine of global prosperity.” By the way, the U.S.A. is the #1 polluter in the entire world. I sincerely hope this makes you angry. You do know what this means, don’t you? It means that our President is more concerned about what “Corporate America” thinks about him then he is about the potential destruction of the Earth, or the human race for that matter. I find his philosophy simply uncanny. Such a blatant disregard for the environment deserves impeachment a lot more than what Clinton did.
Ladies and gentlemen, our environment is not negligible. We can’t afford to leave important decisions like this to this man, who is clearly making arbitrary decisions without consulting with the people first. When was the last time you actually had any say in what went on with policy in this country? We are living in an illusion. This isn’t democracy at all. We get to vote for the President, but you don’t get to choose who controls him. I think if this were a true democracy, we’d get to choose who owned the media, or in the ideal situation, the people should own the media. I’m becoming more and more convinced that Bill Hicks was right when he said that approximately 12 people run this world. The President just does their bidding.
This is unacceptable behavior for one who is supposedly the leader of the Free World. In addition, the fact that this isn’t outraging people says that they concur with him.
You know what folks? I hope this planet is destroyed. Then it would kill off all these idiots like George W. Bush and all the Capitalist scumbags that run this world.
Money is absolutely the most disgusting concept in existence, and always will be. As long as there is money in this world, there will be suffering and pain. People will always be taking advantage of other people in the struggle for money. It just breeds selfishness. I know it’s an arduous task, but I think we need to make a move, a new genesis if you will, toward a world free of “economics” and “capitalism.”
