Whistling Past the Graveyard
My thoughts about the Covid 19 shutdown of the world. Didn't mention this in the recording, it's not the first time the world has ended. It's ending for people now, today, yesterday maybe tomorrow. It's just the beginning, we've created the ideal conditions for these outbreaks. If we survive this we won't survive the next. People are no loger taking things for granted. We are the planet that was obliterated with the Death Star. We are the people seeing it loom above, bigger than a moon. What will it take to rally us into action? A real threat. What about the one that is not immediately tangible, seeable. We bury our heads, our minds. We can't bury this and then we will begin again the cycle of waste, of injustices and social inequities with no concern for those in destitution, the limp bodies of infants, the millions of displaced. Isn't it time we gave the other life forms a chance before we fuck it up for everyone?
