Is This Insanity Or What?

The Objectification of Life – and The Huge Price We Are Paying

By @pdjmoo March 10, 2012

What is it about the human psyche that is willing to destroy the very foundations of life that humanity (and all species) depends upon for survival?  Aren’t we supposed to be the most “intelligent” species on the planet?  Sadly, facts are showing that we have far less understanding of the natural balances required for the planet than our arrogance and intellect would suppose.

It seems this disease is pervasive right across the globe.  Like a swarm of locusts, we are ravaging and razing the earth to a point where life can no longer survive.  We continue to over-fish our oceans until 90% of the big fish are gone, devastating the natural ocean systems and their biodiversity.  Why?  For profit and under the guise of “feeding the people” Overfishing leaves swaths of Mediterranean barren

We continue to ravage the forests that hold so much life that maintains the natural balance and biodiversity of our lands, often displacing indigenous peoples from their homes, creating dependency.  For What?  Profit and the hunger/demand for timber and clearing of forests for non-regional monocrops, destroying thousands of species and their habitat in the process. Our Disappearing Forests.  (It takes 100 years to grow a 100 year-old tree)

We continue to “drill baby drill” even as we are faced with horrific oil disasters world-wide, destroying land and ocean life and ecosystems and costing billions in cleanups.  Why? For profit and the hunger for cheap fossil-fuel energy, oil and gasoline.

“If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.” E. O. Wilson, Pulitzer Prize Winner, Socio-Biologist.

Have we asked too much of Nature and her inhabitants and the myriad of symbiotic relationships all species needed to maintain balance and generate our healthy food supply? We have pushed our cows, beef cattle, chickens, turkeys, pigs and fish over the edge, far beyond their natural capacity to breed and produce within their given maturation processes. We have created a poisoned, industrialized food system that no longer is healthy or nutritious and, in the process, we have objectified the very life forms essential to our food supply. They have become a dollar figure, a number on a balance sheet, to do with what we will. A great tragedy is unfolding before our eyes. We have lost respect for Nature as our partners in life and, as such, lost respect for each other, and ourselves waiving our responsibility for our essential role in our own life support systems.

Witness the beautiful, tiny bees. A little bee is just as important in its own right as you and I in the greater scheme of things…perhaps even more important. Maybe their little immune systems could no longer assimilate all the pesticides, insecticides and GMO pollen we impose on their digestion systems, and their stressful, forced artificial way of life. http://tinyurl.com/ng2opr Read the rest of this entry »
