Here at the beginning of the 21st Century, Humanity as a whole faces a choice.
We can either continue to support an economic and political system that exists to generate profit for the wealthy elite, or we can save the Planet.
We can choose to use the remaining but dwindling resources of the earth for the sake of the People of the Planet, or we can allow them to be bought, exploited, and profited upon by the wealthy elite for their selfish need to grow ever richer. At the expense of the People of the Planet.
We can come together as citizens of the Planet Earth, the only planet we have….and use these resources in the urgent and necessary effort to mitigate Climate Change, or we can continue on as we are, a divided People at the mercy of the forces that control our political and economic systems…for their own greed.
Islands in the Pacific are beginning to disappear, the Bangladesh Delta is already underwater due to Climate Change, there are world wide food and water shortages and perhaps the most disruptive early symptom of Climate Change…Climate Refugees fleeing their homes has also already begun.
All as the wealthy elite use every considerable power in their arsenal to not only to block attempts at mitigation, but still deny…and spread disinformation to the effect of convincing others…that Climate Crisis does not exist.
In effect, they are working not just to accumulate and concentrate vast and underutilized wealth in their own hands, but are actively working to hasten the deadly effects of Climate Change on the Planet.
Only through the People of the Planet banding together and dedicating ourselves to nonviolently changing the current and political systems that threaten humanity’s very future can we ensure that future.
They…the wealthy elite, would like us to think that we are helpless, that things must remain as they are, that the status quo that threatens the children and grandchildren of every person on the planet must be preserved.
But it is the Planet Earth and Her People that must be preserved. Preserved from the short sighted greed of those currently in power.
We are NOT helpless, we can effect change.
But only if we band together and in the spirit of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King and demand change.
Demand a restructuring, demand a new priority for all of humankind, demand real change that will save the Planet.
Demand a new paradigm of planetary of constructive cooperation, not the destructive competition for resources that can only lead to resource wars and the further hastening of planetary and societal destruction….and the suffering or death of billions of our Brother and Sister humans. And our children. And our children’s children.
Our planet is now connected through the internet that allows each and every Planetary Citizen a voice in how our planet is run, how it’s resources are used, how it’s political systems are administered. All we have to do is let our voices be heard, loud and clear, as to what we wish the Planet to be.
And what we wish the Planet to be is peaceful, just, and equal for ALL of Humankind….not just for the one percent of Humanity that currently controls the political, economic, and resource distribution system of our Planet.
Ok, as the title says, it is very rough…and of course there are an immense amount of details etc to work through. TONS of development that needs to be done. But as a general theme, as a starting point, what do y’all think?
