- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
A friend says and I quite agree: there is a one-word diagnosis for ALL the world's ills and that word is OVERPOPULATION. There is a one-word cure for all the world's ills and that word is EDUCATION.
When every life is precious and not considered disposable while fighting over increasingly scarce resources, there will be a reduction in war, sickness, poverty and starvation.
Facilitating overpopulation leads to exploitation by the few for the few of those too poorly educated by default or desire to fight back.
2012 can't come quickly enough, in my view, because frankly I don't think the problem CAN be fixed. There are too many vested interests of the exploiters, the powerful, the rich and superrich. Imagine! One of today's BIG stories was how well some exploiters did during the Great Recession (Second Great Depression). Imagine! Making BILLIONS for your hedge fund while people are starving, sickening and dying everywhere. Imagine! Our government handing essentially a health insurance company bailout to bloated unethical corporations with obscene profits while those unable to afford medical care die at the rate of tens of thousands per year.
Like I say - when there is less population then every life becomes precious.
We are an earth inhabited by babymills.
