LHX - short circuits - part 14 - sustainability
« on: December 08, 2005, 03:59:47 pm »
being a part of a self-destructive society which claims to be something else is not enjoyable

especially with solutions to this apparent 'problem' in plain sight
the solutions that nobody wants


sustainability has been identified as something to 'strive' for
strange
since this society exists on a planet what sustans itself


somewhere early on
'production' got confused with 'progress'

and of course
consumption rises to match production
("smoke em if you got em")
and now
this society seem more like a junky trying to justify getting a fix
instead of a 'civilization' what give a shit about longevity


truth is
everybody wants to live in a sustainable society on their (crack fiend) terms
but
nobody wants ANY PART of the sustainability what is already there



we came from the dirt
but
we dont love the dirt anymore

the implications of this arent hard to see
neat hell

hoopla

This, I think, is the best thing you've ever written.

Some yahoo yelled at me, saying 'GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH', and I thought, "I'm feeling generous today.  Why not BOTH?"

What the world needs is more of LHX's words.  This stuff is always thought-provoking and relevant.

That is some good shit.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

Ossum.


Hey, LHX: My eco-green-recyclable-treefucker-savethewhales hippie school throws around the word "sustainability" like it's going out of style. Mind if I adapt this into flyer form?
