Journal Entry #537
August 19th, 2011
We think we are so smart, top of the food chain and in control but there will come a time when we will pay for all we have done not only to each other but to all other life forms on this planet. It will not come in the form of a reckoning or rapture but it will be what we deserve as a species if we continue on this path of self destruction.
Look I understand the reasons why we do the things we do to each other but it really is stupid and self destructive. We have the capacity to change, to correct as much as we can the damage we have done and yet we continue to engage in this behaviour.
Of course there are people who value life and have empathy for others but it appears there are not enough.
An example of the cruelty we inflict;
Urge the Chinese Government to set Up Laws against Animal Cruelty
This is just one example and I really don’t need to list too much as I am sure you realize what I am referring to. Let me put it this way;
Right now someone around the world is;
Starving to death
Being tortured and sold into slavery
Living in abject poverty
Abusing a spouse or other family member
Hurting an animal
Wishing they were dead
Being mentally abused
Forced to commit terrible acts against another human being
Add to this; All the things we do to the rest of the earthlings.
I think you get the picture and I must tell you it pisses me off to no end and yet I feel so helpless. We really don’t give a shit as this can all be stopped.
Not to mention what we are doing to the environment, all the species that we have put in danger or have killed for our pleasures.
For such a dominate life form you would think that we should have learned not to do this by now but we haven’t.
As much as I want to live I do hope we either get our shit together or we go the way of the DODO and the planet will be better for it. I think we are doing far more harm than good and we will have to face our maker soon and yes that is the wrath of this planet.
