Blake's Day 746 entry on THE 800 DAYS BLOG is about life harmed by man-made catastrophes. I want to quit using the word "CATASTROPHE," too because I have a reverence for NATURE and catastrophes happen in nature. Man Made DISASTERS happen when mankind destroys or makes objects and situations which destroy life. Human life, animal and plant life, spiritual feelings/life... Man (okay, and WOman) is the WORST destroyer of all and, frankly, reading about
*Yikes* I am overheating!
...particularly after looking at the pictures of beautiful animals on The 800 Days blog, reading the stats on how much LIFE has been affected by oil spills - sometimes by "singular" events.
The content is about the possibility of EXTINCTION OF MULTIPLE SPECIES as a result of man made GARBAGE and INDUSTRY... also, human error leading to preventable accidents.
One concept most of the world probably adheres to THAT I WILL NOT is the concept of land ownership and regional boundaries - ie: nationalism and related concepts.
I don't understand how people can believe in the concept of the earth/world as having places where people OWN sections of land, air, sea...
MAPS are TEMPORAL GUIDELINES and navigational tools but authorities use these items to prove OWNERSHIP and authority over spaces that we're supposed to all have reverence and respect for, that we will all benefit much more from by NURTURING AND SHARING TOGETHER...
Consequently OWNERSHIP and POSSESSION of significant spaces and locations on this globe is a TEMPORAL CONCEPT, not a norm, law, fact.
Strangely enough - even when, BY MUTUAL AND MANUFACTURED CONSENT, the world's citizens allow for sections of the globe to be utilized by certain businesses and individuals, when a DISASTER HAPPENS, we find out that, really - NOBODY CAN OWN ANYTHING... we get lack of accountability, and vast areas of polluted, disrespected land, sea and air, that nobody CAN REALLY BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR...because nobody can truly own a place or space to the exclusion of all others, anyway.
I am ranting...
Abrupt cut off on this post - so I can go do some anger management.
BLESS YOU ALL WHO DO NOT OWN OR THINK YOU OWN WHAT IS COLLECTIVELY THE WHOLE WORLDS' SPACES.
