  •  I was thinking about this today. (8+ / 0-)

    Despite some of the less nice people, who insist on showing off their "thats probably not legal" state issues "pro-Life" liscenese plates (No, there arent any pro-choice ones,) I like the part of the country im in. Itis really pretty. I was watching the span of woodland, wanting to remember what it was before the kudzu takes over, and then there was a start shock.

    Line after line of beautiful trees, plants, bushes, and habitats...Then a golf course is carved into it. a F*$# GOLF COURSE.

    I looked at the people playing and I thought "What the hell is wrong with these people?! They obliterated beautiful, natural surroundings, killed biodiversity in the area, and are now using more resources than that ecosystem took up, all in the persuit of hitting a little white ball into a little hole.

    Its stuff like this that makes me think theres no chance of a benevolent god. Oh sure, it wasnt the most outrageously evil thing. But that made it all the worse.

    it was clear the people there had NO remorse, because they didnt think there was a reason for it. They didnt even care and they didnt even notice what they had done. Yes I blame the players. My boyfriend couldnt quite agree with me on this one, but i believe my logic is sound.

    And this is where the pipeline comes in. This is how easy it is for people to not care. They dont care they ruined the look of a place, they displaced huge numbers of animals, and made everyone's world a little more empty and sad.

    In life, I have one lament that stretches across nearly all issues. These habitats took millions of years to develop and grow and become what they are. Why is it that some jackass can just come and destroy it all in a single week?

    And it takes more time than any of us wil llive to undo that damage. This is the sort of thing that makes me cry at night. Makes my life feel empty and pointless. I can do all the good i want but then some monster decides "no, Id rather have cows here" and burns down another #$% FOREST.

    I can never escape this and I so want to. those who mutilate people, those who kill animals to extinction. its everywhere. it seems to be the single, unifying part of all huamnity: Gleefully obliterate that which makes our world and us special, absolove themselves of responsibility, and then usually claim some deity told them to murder in its name.

    My therapist says I somehow lack the ability to ignore all the bad things going on. This is apparently a disorder. That people cant get anything done when theyre like this. they cant live their life like this (I cant get anything done and my life has been static for about 10 years.)

    I just cant help but think...what is wrong with everyone else...?! Why am I aberrant? I dont know. I just..i dont. Ive never been able to dissociate myself from reality. Even a little. It makes my world blunt, dull, painful and grating to extremes.

    It used to be worth it, with the beauty and the grandness of it all. Now all i want to look at is the stars; at least humans wont ruin those til long after im dead.

    I am very sad ill inevitably see another huge chunk of our ecosystem wiped off the pages of history so we can continue destroying our planet. I tried to warn people, that when you burn something like gasoline you increase system entropy but..

    We seem to be the only ones who care. And I do not know how to progress from this point. I sign the petitions but they never change anything.

    I knew something was wrong, VERY werong, with this country when all it took to get the defense of marraige act challenged was NOT the GLBT rights movement. It was NOT common sense and humanity. It was F*%*$ Rightwingers. "Log cabin republicans.". That got them in straight away.

    Okay, before i completely depress myself, im going to stop posting as the rambling to meaning ratio nears infinity.

    It felt like rather a long time, but then long times get longer when you're standing around thinking about them. A curious thing, that. Long roads get longer too, if you're thinking about them, but what about long words? They don't change nearly as much
