What matters in this life, and what truly gives satisfaction to people?
Some people believe material items or wealth provide satisfaction that is sufficient in life. Others believe animals, pets, nature, or things created by life are more satisfying.
In our lifetimes, we’re witnessing the collapse of nature at the expense of material life, at the expense of the monetary system, the grocery store paradigm, and this “wage slavery” we live in.
Some drastic action must be taken by people to preserve the animals, plants, and things that truly could be considered sacred and valuable on this planet before these precious things no longer thrive or exist in good health.
Here are 27 images that should inspire anybody to consider what they support with their money.
1. This is the incredible smog of Beijing, China.
2. In Laos, plastic waste is accumulating here on the shores of the sea.
3. In New Dehli, India, the necessity for people to suffer through population density ultimately due to the hoarding of wealth have to dump their trash in the streets.
4. In Wetsahara, Morocco, this kitty was photographed going through some trash.
5. In Bali, Indonesia you’ll find this dry riverbed filled with trash. When rain comes, the trash is washed out to sea.
6. This poor raccoon has a fishing hook stuck in its lip.
7. In the sea off the coast of the Philippines, there are problems like this.
8. An old bottle is the home of this crab.
9. This frog calls Michigan-looking, badly polluted water its home.
10. In Acra, Ghana, you’ll find first world trash. It actually ends up in places like this. Remember these old computers?
11. In Tunisia, a horrifying thing has happened to poison and kill the turtle population.
12. This bird is suffering through an oil spill.
13. In Fuyuan County, Yunnan Province, this boy is forced to drink horribly contaminated water.
14. Here in Mexico City, 10 million people live very close to each other.
15. To swim in this part of India, this boy has to endure trash water.
16. This turtle probably grew into the plastic thing completely, deforming his shell throughout his life.
17. This is a Koala without a home, a thing that sadly happens quite often with the “development” of land in Australia.
18. This is yet another turtle that has probably grown with something to deform its poor shell.
19. Almost completely unrecognizable, this is a bird in an oil spill.
20. This Albatross bird from the North Pacific was certainly killed by plastic ingestion.
21. This stork is trapped in plastic.
22. This poor seal looks like a puppy, but a plastic container is trapping its face.
23. Doesn’t this creature look just like a puppy in the face? How could we not help save their lives?
24. This famous image caught the moment when a man surfed on garbage in water that should be pristine.
25. Oil sadly covers these penguins.
The environmentalist movements of the world have an unfortunate history of being co-opted, diverted from the best use of their focus and resources, and rendered useless in helping the world become a better place from pollution.
Corporations, NGO’s and supposed charities working in cooperation with corporations, governments working in conjunction with both of them: these are the types of powers that truly have a say in how the environment is effected by humanity on a large scale.
In other words, the actual big entities that specifically decide to do something that might pollute the environment, like producing tons of plastic to sell to the general public, they are the ones who damage the environment.
It’s important to recognize in specific who endangers the environment, because fake environmental movements connected to people in power promote this sort of self sacrificing, anti-humanity philosophy that humanity is a scourge on the planet. It’s incredibly negative and harmful to anyone’s self worth and perception of their value as a human being to be inundated with this fake-environmentalist philosophy that humans are a scourge on this planet.
So remember, specific people in positions of influence who make decisions to produce or sell toxic chemicals, and the governments and institutions that help this process, those are the specific people who are responsible for polluting the environment, not humanity itself.
