The Challenge of Our Lives Has Arrived.
Just take a look around. China has enhanced their Star Wars program. Dick Cheney says no one can stop their insatiable worship of warships. And all over the place, financial markets are in a slow motion collapse.
Yet Americans choose to keep on partying and remain delusional. But, reality doesn’t care what any of us thinks… it will deal with everyone pretending we are invincible consumer vampires that can indefinitely suck suck suck away at mother earth without consequences.
But again, this is all coming from a hypocrite blogger who has credit card debt, a mortgage, and student loans to pay off. And Americans just make really, really dumb decisions sometimes. I can only hope that as it all unravels, the good people of this country will put their fears to work for good, and alleviate their suffering though community cooperation rather than insanity and violence.
As layoffs continue and prices rise, there will be tensions none of us have ever witnessed before. We will need to be more inventive, patient, and get by with MUCH, MUCH less.
It’s the challenge of our lives.
