For those who don't know me - I'm an atheist.
I don't believe there is a better world after this. Jeebus is not going to save me, I'm not going to get my own planet, and I'm not leaving on a spaceship.
The environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is driving me to distraction.
As a reasoning human, I try to understand WHY this happened.
The last decade has shown us - unless you're completely in a fog - that the powers that be in this world will stop at NOTHING to make money, and the hell with the rest of us. Oil and Banking - greedy, lascivious, obscene bed partners.
2. RELIGIOUS HATRED. Dubya started the war to defend his Christian Daddy. Oh, and there was OIL involved. And GREED.
3. FAR TOO EFFICIENT REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEMS. There are too many people on this planet. War and disease are no longer efficient checks on the system. We immunize and control against diseases. Yet, birth control is considered illegal, immoral, etc.
Our planet is overwhelmed by humans. Yet, for an economy to survive, it has to have an influx of workers who will work for low wages. It doesn't matter if you're China or the US or Japan.
The environmental disaster in the Gulf is unfathomable. Watch the 60 Minutes story if you haven't already.
Greed, greed, and territorial pissing.
A few guys in a pissing match, some guys who were too greedy to check out the situation in full, and the end of the Gulf and the Florida Keys Reefs.
I'd personally like to tear out the livers of all of them.
