This post is me venting. If you're fine and dandy being led around by dunces then please stop reading.
I'm fed up with society being tarnished by those who are only out to make a buck at the expense of their surroundings.
- Coal ponds spilling over in Tennessee
- The sub-prime mortgage meltdown
- Salmonella in peanut butter
- Contaminated Salsa
- Disgusting Tylenol
- Mountaintop Coal Removal
- Oil filling up the Gulf (Grist features a nice article summarizing the Rolling Stone article criticizing Obama and the Federal response. Truly maddening.)
I'm under 30 years old, yet I feel that I am a more responsible citizen of this planet than our corporate and political "leaders".
I want a better society. They want more power.
I believe in sustainability and the virtues that come with it. They believe in money and power.
I'm sick of society suffering from the greed of dunces.
Why can't I turn on the TV and see a real leader? Why isn't society demanding more? Why do we constantly hear of change, yet we're constantly bombarded by idiocy?
We don't have to sit by and do nothing. We have to demand more. I'm disgusted by the lack of unsustainability that permeates our daily lives.
Let's start a sustainable revolution...
