Sidetracking from medicinal cannabis. This environmental disaster/catastrophe/crime of nature just cannot be ignored...
I mean really, when are we as people going to stand up as ONE and say, "Enough! The society of economics and financial gain are destroying our planet. I mean FUCK! There are companies trying to patent DNA for Christ sakes! Wake UP! We are being taken for a ride by a select few people who believe that the person with the most peanuts is the most powerful.
Look at us:
We let our oceans get destroyed by oil spills because we are told that oil is the only way to produce fuel to power our lives (and Coal of course). Yetwe have a plethora (I love that word) of viable alternatives. Unfortunately no one has worked out how to make a cash flow from solar or tidal power to name a few.
We have a cure for cancer. Sadly, curing cancer would make many industries redundant, including the cancer 'societies' that were formed to help people come to terms with their 'incurable' disease.
We are told that in order to be 'successful' or to be a 'winner', we must have the latest and greatest of everything, plus a credit card and a mortgage. We are told this because if we have these things, the CEO's of the companies that produce these things will receive their 30+ million dollar salaries.
The really scary thing is...in a couple of weeks, the ongoing gulf disaster will no longer be newsworthy (that is, it will not sell papers or attract viewers), so it is possible that efforts to properly stem this flow, or to reclaim the oil spread across the gulf may be allowed to drag on for ages, purely because the public has become desensitised to the whole issue.
Sometimes I think we're becoming a bunch of mindless sheep...
