A magical mystery tour that we should have stopped to ask directions for but didn't. Our journey has lost its way. Our direction is aimless and selfish. Where we should work together, we pretend that isn't necessary.
Lin... the right has overcome the good sense of the governing elites. The right has succeeded in making caring and concern for people, aiding others in distress, preserving the environment and even simple common sense (like providing a good education for the young or soc sec for the aged etc) into negatives and dismiss such thoughts as liberal bleeding heart drivel. Since when did heartless greed and insensitivity become the norm for these people? They wish to make us think as they do. Profit matters not people.
If they even know about the oceans? People have learned how to not see what they don't want to see in our modern world. Anything environmental the right claims is tree hugging and then never bothers to read about it. People have been taught to become creepy, selfish and crass (boorishly greedy). People have been taught to be stupid about whatever doesn't concern them directly.
The days are short for us to communicate the truth to those who would care if they were reached. If you would save the last of the best (oceans included) then communicate to others that the time is truly short. Even among us progressives... we do not really sense the urgency...
My friend... the world waits for catastrophe to hit and then they will demand change like they should have been doing already. Such is the way of things when the greedy rule. They do not care and perhaps... we who do care ...do not care enough... yet.
