Stop Worrying About Peak Oil

Stop Worrying About Peak Oil

Is everyone on this planet just a big pussy? Are there so few humans willing to face their own demons and do what it takes to help out their fellow species before so many perish?

Hey you, WIMPY WORKING CLASS!
Are you just going to allow yourselves to keep getting punched in the face by your government captors? How many lumps are you going to allow yourself to take before you fight back for yourselves? When are you going to take control of your own futures – or are you going to just sit there and let yourself suffer from financial and emotional ruin?

Solution – Find your inner warrior! Be brave, stand up and fight for yourselves! I don’t mean literally fight – I mean get off your ass and help save this place by adding to the cause. You can start by looking for a job in earth-friendly growth sectors such as:

– Small scale farming
– Small scale alcohol still production
– Converting gasoline engines to run on pure alcohol (just like race cars do!)

Hey you, CAPITALISTS!
You are such pussies! You are too stupid to invest in the right new markets to solve Peak Oil even though there is tons of money to be made! You would rather invest in the tried-and-true weapons of war to make profits, and that market means the end of us all.

Solution – Invest in brave young entrepreneurs, and don’t stifle their creative class with your old and broken system. Finance the ones offering substitutes

Hey you, FARMERS!
You suck so hard, your grandfather would switch your ass until it bled pints for selling out so easily to monoculture driven food corporations and home developers.

Solution – Learn the amazing profitable benefits of growing multiple crops using permaculture!

Hey, all you POLITICIANS!
Every single one of you carries the rotten odor of week-old-cheese or worse. Even if you are convinced your showers have cleansed you. By running for office, you serve yourself while supposedly serving the people.

Solution – Offer REAL platform issues that matter, such as supporting micro-level food production, offer crossover vocational training for making alcohol fuel, and help support programs that assist in eradicating unbridled consumerism. We have to come up with ways to save ourselves from the effects of global temperature increases, not just talk about it.

I want to apologize for offending anyone, but not really. Unless you are actively engaged in helping save yourself, your family, and your friends by departing from your old self, you might not make it.

Now think: What can you do to be a better you?

    You can’t make an omelette…

    I’m learning that real learning is sometimes uncomfortable — and challenging.

    Cheers to you. You’re challenging people.

    Sorry, but I don’t really feel like this train of thought is constructive, and it certainly doesn’t “challenge” people. I agree that people need to stop worrying about peak oil and actually DO something, even if it involves some sacrifice (*gasp*). HOWEVER, the vast majority of people out there don’t know what peak oil is, and even if they did, chances are they wouldn’t understand the complexities of it–the implications, the way it ties in with our modern economy, the shifts in thinking that needs to happen before our culture can face up to such a thing.

    Farmers and the working class aren’t “pussies” (and by the way, a lot of people, including myself, are offended by that kind of use of that word). They are people who are doing what they have been taught that they need to do to get by. They are victims, yes, but victims of a very subtle, complicated kind of exploitation. It is not as easy as taking control of their own futures.

    If you really want to help the peak oil cause, EMPATHY will be your most useful tool. We’re all in this together, and name-calling and finger-pointing isn’t going to help anyone. You can’t help people change their behavior until you understand, and even sympathize, with their positions.

    Sarah,

    This article isn’t made for you. It’s made for people who refuse to wake up. You woke up a long time ago.

    If you can’t figure out that the article is meant to push buttons, then you don’t understand the purpose of this blog.
