Where’s the evolution?

Not my words but this says it better than I could.

“Cannot you see, cannot all you lecturers see, that it is we that are dying, and that down here the only thing that really lives is the Machine?  We created the Machine, to do our will, but we cannot make it do our will now. It has robbed us of the sense of space and of the sense of touch, it has blurred every human relation and narrowed down love to a carnal act, it has paralyzed our bodies and our wills, and now it compels us to worship it.  The Machine develops – but not on our lives.  The Machine proceeds – but not to our goal. We only exist as the blood corpuscles that course through its arteries, and if it could work without us, it would let us die.”  ~ E.M. Forster, “THE MACHINE STOPS”

“Insects, birds, mammals, and fish have all been migrating to cooler zones for the past four decades in response to the cataclysmic climate disruption ignited by industrial civilization, but humans are the only organisms inhabiting this blue orb we call Earth who are not altering their behavior.  They live within an energy cocoon that keeps them cool in the summer, warm in the winter, stuffed with massed produced food from mechanized factory farms, and entertained by a virtual world of digital imagery.  As cracks and holes in the Earth’s biosphere grow ever larger, the natural response of capitalist carbon man ensconced within his protective energy shell is to try to put a price tag on what is being burned, i.e. fossil fuels, rather than deal with the deeper root cause of an unsustainable economic system and way of life which demands such exorbitant consumption of resources.”  This comes from Xray Mike79 at http://collapseofindustrialciv…

I find this website (depending on the day) can be a realistic look at the tawdry mess our civilization finds itself in, and it offers none of the false solutions or techno-saviors we see in mainstream environmental thought today.  The technology will never save us if we can’t be bothered to save ourselves.  Like Xray Mike says…  ” humans are the only organisms inhabiting this blue orb we call Earth who are not altering their behavior.”

While this offers a dark view of the future, I find some peace in these cold, harsh truths.  I continually shrink my footprint and become more resourceful and self-reliant, but I don’t believe there’s any stopping the habits that my fellow Americans have become accustomed to.  We’ve become addicted to the idea that growth is good, big is better, and by all means, purchase the latest toys and keep the (air conditioning, wine, designer shoes, trip to a favorite vacation spot) coming…

  1. Katrinka:  What’s coming is even worse.  Because THE PIG knows that someday CAPITALISM will implode, they are now working on ARTIFCIAL ANIMALS and ARTIFICIAL PEOPLE.  A small Nuclear War to first shock and awe folks–THEN the unleashing of the GE Global Virus to kill off all unnecessay people, leaving 5% Super Rich and another 5% maybe as ‘hangers-on’ and ‘wannabe rich’.  They will maintain the Earth as a paradise offered to the Super-Rich and perhaps a market for the aliens from deep space.  The Super-Rich will have the hangers-on develop the Particle Beam and light-speed space travel–all for New Worlds To Plunder.  Artificial People will come in handy there.  We will be THE BORG.  And the Super-Rich will explore other worlds for the sake of INTER-GALACTIC ADVENTURES IN CAPITALISM.

    It’s coming.  All Sci-Fi written in the 50s has come true.  This is NOT Conspiracy–This is a MARKETING PLAN.  We should all be outraged at what they have ‘planned’ for us, our children and grandchildren.

    You don’t take over the world by guns or ideology.  Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin, and Mao were ‘amatuers’–You take over the world by acquiring vast amounts–disgustingly vast amounts–of WEALTH.  Wealth is POWER.  Then, you can do anything you want to keep and expand that Power and Wealth.

    People?  Fuck ’em!  They’re talking MONEY!  Forget about GMO Labeling.  Some day soon, because of Global Warming and a shitload of Monsanto pollen in the atmosphere, the bread-and-butter croplands will be wastelands.  A Global FOOD EMERGENCY!  And GE Foods to the rescue.  The FDA will approve everything.

    If they can ‘design’ food, they can design Artificial Life.  And a GE Virus to take care of ‘superfluous’ life.  Of course, the bastards will have the immunization and cures all for themselves.

    Did you catch that SMALLPOX story a couple of days ago?

    BRAVE NEW WORLDS, and SAME OLD, SAME OLS.  Have a nice day.  Glad to see you back.
