Sweating out a solution

We need creative ambitions after the rich man cries broke, [instead of] all this talk about the worsening economy by a media and economic system that promoted the death-to-debt mentality at the expense of the environment.

Well-funded wars appear to be our only solutions. How we treat each other is how we treat the Earth. There’s plenty of work to be done. Let’s start in space: Clean up all the man-made debris, and if we can, send no more new debris. Clean up industrial sites that cripple the Earth and all its inhabitants slowly, and if it’s not good for the Earth—don’t make it.

Reinvest in all environmentally conscious solutions, starting with the ghettos, reservations and trailer parks. Restructure society to take the pressure off Earth’s resources and the people that use them. Share Earth, love and a living wage. Enough about all the advertised problems. Six months of work, six months of play, no mass consumptions, no overtime. Let’s sweat together toward creative solutions.

The lasting stimulus begins with us. Creative ambitions after the rich man cries.
