inordinately or wrongly desirous of wealth or possessions; greedy.
As a species we are supremely good at it. Why? Simply we can. As the primero apex predator, we have nothing to stand in our way. We are first, at the top, controller of the chain. We are totally free to do what we like and consuming is a very big like. With nothing outside of ourselves to regulate our insatiability, we have become unable to regulate ourselves.
Consumption has virtually become a form of religion, with all the fervour that can accompany a need that never gets full. In a growing absence of grounded meaning and belief, a God like beast in the form of commodity has filled the void.
Unfortunately those who really should know better are leading the competitive gorge, stuffing as much in and away as possible. Our elected leaders, those example setters, put up there to reflect our will and want. Admittedly, they come nowhere close to the growing and bloated private sector elite. That upper echelon of society where many political movers and shakers retire, topping up the bloat.
Of course it has always been this way, in degrees. But with an exploding planetary population and technological super advancement, the conditions are ‘so right’ in encouraging our natural innate ability to consume. To fuel it right up, explode it to stratospheric levels.
The human species will only be a mere squeak in the totality, our story will only amount to the proverbial footnote. It’s not that we couldn’t choose to just consume less and just seriously think about the consequences. It’s that we actually chose not to. When we arrogantly place ourselves above all else, in effect trampling on all else, we create conditions for pay back.
It may not be a cataclysmic event or a slow grinding depletion of life sustaining elements. It may just end up being one of those tiny organisms, an invisible to the human eye viral infection. A fever that is really fucked off with how we behaved and in its superior intellect and more ancient deliberations, just decides that the mighty and haughtiest has had its time.
Its time to bring it to its knees.
Observing whats real is becoming increasingly difficult. This site is my view, my perception and my commentary on what I believe to be real, from my own unique position.
