“You don’t start a revolution by fighting the state but by presenting the solutions.” –Le Corbusier
I love to watch a lot of DVDs on the environment. I want to know as much as I can about the fragility of life on this planet. I feel like a species doctor. Yes, I was trained to be a doctor for individuals who are sick (not well), but in the time I’ve spent with many patients, I have learned how their health is intricately connected to the health of their family, community, society and planet. I strongly believe that all of these domains are profoundly unhealthy at this moment. The human species is in peril for its presence on Earth. It is very important to study the extent of the diseases, their causes and ways to end them. Be humble for our infinite smallness. Don't hope the causes go away. Stop them. There are huge numbers of intelligent, caring directions. I watched the documentary Gasland, directed by Josh Fox. He investigates the nightmare of fracking for natural gas and its legal consequences. He exposes VP Dick Cheney signing away EPA restrictions in the favor of his friends in the natural gas and oil industries. These companies have no accountability for their vulgar destruction of human life and nature. I weep for our ignorant passivity. Please feel the thrill of resistance. Put loving care into your hurt and anger and convert it into a radiant loving modeling of alternatives that hurt no one. Please…hurry…have fun…do it with people…whee!
