It's time for great changes.
We have built these forms of oppression and destruction right into the fabric of our culture. Built into the stories we tell ourselves, from generation to generation. Stories that perpetuate a myth, a flaw, that has now brought us to brink of annihilation. A flaw which is has been systematically built in to our society, through our language, through our economic systems, through our slanted history, through the pressures we place on each other to conform and follow along if this flaw is questioned.
Despite our best efforts, this flaw perpetuates itself, repeating the same cycles and screaming the same mantras. We fight to end factory farming, to reduce suffering in all forms, to end human and non human animal exploitation, and so many other causes but do so in a way that never addresses the underlying cause that led things to be this way. This fundamental flaw in our worldview.
It's time to correct the fundamental flaw in thinking. The flaw is that we believe that we are not one with this world, that we don't belong here, that we are some how separate from 'nature'. It's time to realize that we are every bit connected to this planet. That if we reThis must be our new story. It's time for REAL change. Lets change the rules of the game and no longer make the suffering of others a commodity.
There is no better time than now. And don't fret my friends, despair is not an option.
Lets make compassion our currency!
