Save the Planet

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) How are we going to save the Planet? So, please someone explain how we, WE, are going to save the Planet? There is little to nothing wrong with the Planet. Compared with the people the Planet is doing fine. It is also that attitude of greed and wanting more than others, more power, more wealth, more possessions, that we have ravaged the Planet and brought mankind to the brink of extinction.

The extreme focus on materialism and its impact on the Planet

Green (Living) Review

Greed, conquest, acquisition, power, control are values that not only are prevalent but are also rewarded and valued throughout Western society. Perpetual growth does not compute with a Planet that cannot grow. With a planet, however, which is finite, we have a problem.

The sources of our troubles

Green (Living) Review

Instead we should test people for stupidity, ignorance, greed and the love of power of of money. Applying this test as outlined above would immediately make it self-evident who those are that cause the problems in the world and that would lead us and the Planet to destruction. Most also suffer from stupidity, ignorance and greed, per se, and their only aim is to make a name for themselves and to rule over people.

Population matters to the environment

Green (Living) Review

people on this planet and that, with oil and other resources running out, food and everything else also could become short in supply. Natural calamities exist to regulate population of humans and of animals on the Planet and the Earth does it all by itself quite nicely. Our misguided interference, however, has cause the imbalance, in the same way as human actions are the cause of much of the misery on the Planet in the first place and also of the environmental problems.

No need for unemployment

Green (Living) Review

It is a world where work is not related to satisfying our needs and that of our communities but a wold where work is only related to satisfying the profit and greed of businesses and their shareholders. It is a world where workers are exploited for greed. Yet, as long as employment is tied to somebody else's profit and greed, the work needed will not get done and the workers are but wage slaves. We need a system, economic and political, that considers people and the Planet.

Endless growth is a real danger

Green (Living) Review

We could have saved ourselves and the Planet so much grief. But, greed got the better of most, it would appear, and it still has us in its grip. The world has wasted more than a century and a half and the actions and greed of government and corporations have caused the destruction of much of Earth, the extinction of species and has brought us to the brink of an ecological catastrophe that is threatening all (human) life on this Planet.

Healthy habitats are fast disappearing, for man and beast

Green (Living) Review

There can be no doubt, however, that the quantity of resources on this planet is dwindling, and that is true for everything. As regards to population a smaller human population has a smaller impact on the planet. This is not the same as too many people for the planet to support at this time or in the next number of years, but too many people for the planet to support without a negative impact on everything other than humans. Greed, that's what is causing this delay.

To take such a stand in a world where, it would appear, the amount of money you make, what kind of car you drive, what kind of home you live in, what brand of clothes you wear and such counts more that what and who you are is not an easy one to make when everyone else is peddling the hamster wheel but it is the right one for all mankind and the right one for the Planet also.

We need a new system, not a new government

Green (Living) Review

Politics as if people and Planet mattered by Michael Smith (Veshengro) It is often being thought by people that if they just would get a new government, a different one from the present one, or a new president (as in the USA), or what have you, it will change things but it will not. Government and corporations are not interested in people and the Planet but only in profit and power and we must put a stop to that.
