Listen up soldiers, we have a crisis on
our hands. A silent army has been built up over hundreds of years and is
the most deadly enemy we have ever had to face. This enemy you people have
known since the day you were brought into this world. You are face to face
with this enemy every day, unknowing that every step you take, every move
you make, and every decision you face is contributing somehow to this army?s
In case you haven?t noticed yet, ladies
and gentlemen, this enemy is ourselves. Slowly and surely we are destroying
animals, ourselves and most importantly the only planet we have, Earth.
You have probably all heard this speech a thousand times before, and well
if this has to be the 1001 before we get off our lazy, self-destructing
asses and do something to fix it, so be it!
I admit I?m no better than the rest of
you at the simple things in everyday life that are destroying this planet,
but the whole issue pisses me off. Our whole existence revolves around
money, and our personal benefit. We have forgotten how to do things for
others, how to help the planet and, in turn, how to benefit the species.
The fact is simple people, we?re killing
ourselves. Many, however, don?t notice it. They believe what they?re doing
is either beneficial, or that they are too small to do anything about it.
Well most of them are right, most of us fall under some sort of higher
power, which means that the root of the problems are mainly the governments.
Don?t think that this is leading into one of those x-filesy, conspiracy
theory type lectures, however if you?d like to call it that, I wont be
one to judge. I do believe the governments know how to prevent and stop
much of the problems in our world today. For example, it?s a widely known
fact that we have the technology to use water instead of gas for cars,
but the government wont allow production because they get money off gas,
and to them it?s more important than a clean environment, more important
than contaminating the water, or killing off animals because of the pollution
even when the money they get from the gas ends up being put back into trying
to control these problems anyway. And who was the guy who thought that
burning fossil fuels would be a good source of energy anyway? Did they
take the first suggestion that came up or what? Fossil fuels are not everlasting
guys, HELLO! Is our species so narrow-minded that we can?t see into the
future and realise that one day it will run out. Or did we know that in
the beginning and not care cause it was the only resource we could use?
Did we then become so lazy that we couldn?t spend the time and money (ooo
not money!!) to figure out some other sort of fuel or energy source?!?!
This is nuts!!!
So go ahead try and hide. Protect yourselves
with your fancy guns and munitions, run away with your trains, planes,
and automobiles or go about as if nothing?s happening. None of those will
help you much cause the only way we can shelter ourselves from what?s to
come is if we stop it from ever happening. Now are you all able to get
off your couches, stop watching your TV?s and do something about it? Didn?t
think so but it was worth a try anyway.
