Where Are We Going?

This election cycle may be our last chance. Work HARD for the Progressives, do the best you can to see them elected, and vote as if all our lives depend on it, because they do.

Comment by “Art” in https://theintercept.com/2019/07/05/shell-conference-climate-change/

This brief comment to the article in The Intercept was one of several by “Art”. His other comments were a depressing, long list of scientific findings that he, as a climate scientist, offered to support his reasons for being so blunt.

To those who said it is too late, or that we, the people, have no power to make a change, Art replied, ” Your nihilism is duly noted but I refuse to give up.”

To which “mgr” wrote:

Art: Spot on! That’s really what it comes down to. We may win, or we may lose, but giving up is always defeat, from the inside out. It comes down to making a choice.

Where are we going?

For the sake of our children and their children, we have this choice: follow the platitudes of our current leaders as they follow the money dangled before their noses; or put your hand up and vote for a future that will include humanity. A future that will include breathable air, enough clean water to drink, sufficient vegetation and animals to maintain the only place, the ONLY place, in this universe where we can live.

The money being dangled before our noses cannot be breathed or eaten.

It is way past time to be nice. Our very lives are at stake.

There are no passengers on spaceship earth. We are all crew. Marshall McLuhan

One thought on “Where Are We Going?

  1. I have met so many people who say “I don’t understand politics.” “All politicians are the same.” “I don’t know, so I don’t vote.” “What difference would my vote make?”
    It all comes down to EDUCATION and GUMPTION. EVERY VOTE DOES COUNT.
    Ask your children and grandchildren what they learn about DEMOCRACY and THE VOTE in school. Then, don’t wait for schools to educate your offspring in this regard. Make this good dinner table conversation. EDUCATE and give the example: VOTE.
