Emergency Peoples’ Relief Taking Place in OK

Earth First! Newswire

In case you didn’t know, a tornado touched down in Oklahoma, killing at least 51 people (20 children among them). We can’t control the weather, we can try to stop climate change before it gets worse, and we can definitely help build solidarity networks to respond to emergency situations. FEMA is too busy picking which trees to cut down in the San Francisco Bay area. Solidarity is all we have.

The Bottom Line

hajo-banker-400x256You can’t have a state enforced monopoly currency controlled by private banking interests along with corporations with state granted limited liability and allow corporations to destroy natural capital without legal limit and expect anything other than what we see: a dominated market (mistakenly called free), accelerating inequality and the destruction of our world for corporate profit as corporate power grows as an externalization maximizing enterprise. All the major industries destroy more natural capital than they financially create. The faster these industries grow in their current carbon-centric form the faster the planet becomes less hospitable to human life. “More than 100 million people will die and global economic growth will be cut by 3.2 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) by 2030 if the world fails to tackle climate change, a report commissioned by 20 governments said.” If it took one second to read the name of each person that didn’t have to die it would take 1157 days to finish reading that list. (To say nothing of growing environmental toxicity linked to higher rates of autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders).

In addition, under the current social paradigm continuing development in software and robotics permanently increase unemployment.
