Earth Day

Today, Earth Day is known as one of the most significant secular observances in the world. It is celebrated by more than a billion people every year as a day of action to change human behavior and to create global, national, and local policy changes. As education and awareness of climate change grow, so does civil mobilization. Instead of taking to the streets, like in 1970, today’s movement exists on a digital platform.

The Earth is our only home, and it’s the only place in the Universe known to harbor life. Amazing, right? So, let’s protect our home and keep it clean. Once a year, we celebrate our Earth. The rest of the year, we treat it like dirt. We try to attain infinite growth on a finite planet. We are breaking what cannot be fixed.

Celebrate Life.

If you compare the cultures of Iran, Pakistan, China, and North Korea, with this Brazilian culture, it demonstrates and illustrates how essential the system of democracy is to living a happy and full existence.

Slapp suits

The buildup and background are too long, but the ending is the personification of one of my morals. 

Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.

You will laugh.

Awesome

Awesome is the word that sums up the concept of a generation of intelligence. This word is usually misused since awesome has the connotation of danger. World War Two was awesome. Putting a man on the moon was awesome. Seeing a movie or buying a new pair of pants is not awesome. Change your words, and you change the world. People do not realize that it takes experience and years to absorb and cultivate wisdom. You must understand that Google is not wisdom. With the level of incompetence that is permeating the world, at an accelerating rate, “trust” will take on a new meaning. Incompetence, greed, and stupidity are forces conspiring to make us chronically unwell. These forces won’t clean our air of the virus, or make our cities more walkable, quieter, or safer. The level of carbon dioxide, which contributes to the greenhouse effect, reached highs last seen more than 3 million years ago, at which point the levels of the sea were some 50 ft. higher than today. It’s the people in official capacities, given a little power, that is skewering the world, with incompetence and their fragile egos and pride. We are breaking what we cannot fix. Satoru

America

America is at a crossroads and precipice. In the coming months, the results of political actions will define the country for generations. A sufficient number of citizens must still prefer a democratic form of government and have some degree of trust in representative institutions. Put simply, can our nation reverse democratic erosion? That’s the paramount issue now for the United States. These are perilous times. Over the last four years, much of what we hold dear was threatened – democracy, civility, and truth, especially by the orange lord of the lies. The Republican Party announced today that it is changing its emblem from an elephant to a condom because it more clearly reflects the Republican party’s position on the major issues facing America. A condom accepts inflation, halts production, controls expanding freedom, is difficult to repair, accepts incompetence and rage, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives you a sense of security while you’re getting screwed. Satoru
