Occupy This

Dispatched by B F Koch

It’s no wonder evolution is such a hard sell these days, considering our perception of the planet and the people living on it hasn’t changed in over two hundred years.

It is not, as some insist, that we’ve forgotten our founders; it’s that we still think it’s our right to plunder whatever portion of the world’s resources we feel entitled to.

As long as we all enjoyed some small share of the spoils, it was easy to overlook the misery we caused for the countless millions who just got in our way.

What we failed to notice however is that eventually our regulations just got in the way, our laws just got in the way, and finally our idea of self governing democracy just got in the way.

We have recently awakened to the realization that the only thing left is us. Now we are in the way.

Intervention For America

“I understand that everyone has their own opinions as to how I got to where I am. Clearly I’m not perfect, and sure, sometimes I broke the rules and forced myself into places just to get more, but then, I was on top."

“Honestly I was startled when I began to realize that my friends no longer believed a word I said; so I kicked, screamed, and yelled, hoping to get their attention, demanding they do as I say, but they just wouldn’t listen, and often, I simply left them behind."

“It never took long before I needed more, but everyone was on to me and no one was willing to intervene, so I just invaded in order to get it, but it was never enough. Out of money, places to go, and options, I decided to let my friends help."

"How do I feel? Oil has controlled me for the better part of my life. From the time I discovered it I loved it, I needed more, and there was nothing else. It has controlled many decisions, some good, most bad. Without it, I panic and don’t know where to turn. I know I have to find something else, I just hope it’s something that’s easier to score.”
