In the past, I felt tremendous rebelliousness when I saw all the injustices that were occurring in the world. I used to write rebel songs protesting against politicians. With time, I realized that seeing the situation that way was like being a finger of my hand and saying, well, the hand will take care of everything and if the hand doesn’t work it out, I will fight against it. All of us together, as humans in our evolution, have contribute in some way to create our civilization as best as we knew. Sometimes moved because of fear, ignorance, or lack of taking responsibility, we have supported a culture that now we discover is destructive and non sustainable.
Politicians, most of the times, simply represent the choices that we unconsciously have chosen in the past. Each person, you and I, can improve our planet if instead to fight against the people in the power (that don’t know how to resolve the situation), you and I become leaders in our community, in our families, offering new possibilities, creating and finding associations that act in a constructive way.
You and I, and each individual in themselves, are the only ones that can change the world. After that, politicians will not have other choice than following our example and create systems that support this transformation! Contact me if you want support on becoming a positive constructive force in this Earth!
From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns.
The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It’ll teach you something, it’ll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever. www.storyofstuff.org
