We Are the Antidote – Every Choice a revolutionary Act

January 30, 2010

There is a deeply uncomfortable but clearly structural explanation for the pattern of historic U.S. war-making that continues to this very moment. US Americans, people like you and me, are addicted to insatiable consumption that makes the American Way Of Life totally dependent upon massive exploitation of others and their resources, and the earth herself. 

The political-economic market system we have grown up with and support with our tax dollars and voting patterns is a significant contributor to the problem.

Part of the revolutionary antidote, if it occurs, will be in radically changed choices each of us makes as to how we travel, what we eat, what we consume or don’t consume, etc. Take travel, for example. Air and private auto travel not only emit massive amounts of carbon molecules, accumulating as particles of mass destruction in our biosphere, they also consume inordinate amount of petroleum for each passenger mile traveled. 

If we are not committed to taking radical leaps in our own consciousness that manifests in corresponding radical changes in our lifestyles, then we choose complicity in business as usual, i.e., continuing to live as we have been conditioned and to which we are now addicted – comfortable materialism. It is absolutely and totally unsustainable. We now have an evolutionary opportunity for a leap in consciousness to integrate ourselves into a cosmological reality of living in mutual respect with all other life. So, we are the antidote, not the government or the market. As we become conscious, each daily choice we make from eating, traveling, and consuming, or not, is a revolutionary act.

    Most people choose to travel to new places because
    they need a break from what they’re doing. Traveling helps to dilute this stress and helps you take your mind of all the sources of anxiety and worries about life’s innumerable problems while
    you’re away. You can also make new associates even while touring with a group
    but the joys of meeting random folks is amplified
    if you end up alone. Uploading cheeky selfies
    or photos of partying just isn’t the one approach you can make your pals jealous
    on social networking websites. Some people are inclined to
    argue that this stuff will be skilled even by watching
    documentaries or by looking at photos online, but that is removed from the reality.
    The reality is nobody really is aware of
    for positive. There can be occasions when you are feeling as if
    nothing goes that will help you to turn your life right into a profitable one.

    I am really loving the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility
    issues? A number of my blog visitors have complained
    about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My website
    has a lot of completely unique content I’ve
    either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my
    authorization. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off?

    I’d truly appreciate it.
