HISTORY IS IN THE MAKING, as humankind has become so powerful with information, technology and communication, we have the ability to collectively influence or be influenced to really help or screw up a good thing with the life, relationships and environment on this miracle of a planet. The fact that humans have consumed more resources on Earth in the last 50 years than in all human history, begs the question of what havoc, in the air, on land and in the waters, are we setting in motion, that can't be reversed. Because of the increasing impact of "free" consumption habits and certain exclusive religious and economic views that naturally lead to destructive conflict, more than ever, current generations are at a critical time in history to hurry up and collectively realize the innate contract obligation with future generations to hand over a well protected and cared for planet. So many distractions swirling around, influencing us to be ignorant, selfish and apathetic as well as many influences motivating us to be informed, alert and engaged. Is ignorance and selfishness a culturally spawned mental illness epidemic? Is it my imagination or does everyone seem to have somewhere between a little to quite alot of some mental illness? How do you prevent mental illness or maintain sanity? Well this website is from another imperfect swirling distraction whom would like to be more of a good sane influence... always with the voiceless and voteless in mind.
WHO ARE WE? As moment by moment action and inaction defines who people of this generation are, our purpose, mission and legacy, no matter what our vision or lack of vision is, we are always carving out and planting the state of health and sustainability for future generations. Because of our affect on future generations we are certainly our future brother's/sister's keeper. Also, because we have the unique ability of perspective to stand back and see the whole picture, we naturally are elected to and can act responsible for the stewardship of the whole planet in the name of past and future generations... What greater purpose besides being decent to each other, in every moment, could there possibly be? What other species can handle this obligation? Republican, Democrat... Independent, we all make an impact and need to work together to make that impact 100% positive(within reason.) History teaches: awareness of thought and action is important, because human's can be like a bull in a china shop, unaware of the domino effect, in a place where everything is so interconnected. This big, moment by moment, huge responsibility, is passing by many un-noticed as the human population shops, constructs, entertains, politicizes, socializes, produces, consumes and in many cases struggles to survive... growing exponentially with a vote for or against the well being of everything related to our home here on Earth.
THE EARTH BELONGS TO WHO? Rising to the occasion as earth stewards and good neighbors, aren't these two of the most important and golden rules of all? Isn't it true that humans born on this planet have an innate contract to honor past and serve future generations? Doesn't all private rights, in regards to nonrenewables, fall under the context of this assumed trust account contract? This "contract" of being trustees and managers of this earth "trust account" and its principal, in behalf of future generations is a passed torch that defines our legacy. Meanwhile in this undeniable purpose, we thrive and survive off of the interest while safeguarding the principal... thats the game... the "challenge." Checks and balances: free speech devil advocacy through out the process to maintain a doublecheck. The need for continously assessing. Is there an excuse for anyone in their right mind to feel anything but very grateful and protective about the basics of our life support... clean air, clean water, non toxic and safe food and shelter? Anything less is biting the hand that gives you life support... Fresh air and water lends the breath, wet eyes and wet tongue... tools to represent and give non-humans and future generations' a viewpoint and voice. Most people don't think of their assumed roles as good steward or good neighbor in regards to their moment by moment thoughts and actions. Personally, I just plain forget who I am... what I represent and all that I am responsible for on this planet in regards to my duty to neighbors, the environment and all things held in trust. Okay, so I have a lot to work on about my own behavior and I am far from being a good neighbor/ steward role model... but I am effectively trying to improve, empowered by information like what is provided in the home page links below.
CURING MENTAL ILLNESS: Mental illness defined as distress, disfunction or disability through a combination of how a person feels, acts, thinks or perceives has become the accepted norm in many cultures. In some cases the problem is biological... in many cases it develops as a result of stresses and social influences. In these latter cases, a lack of education of how to manage and protect one's own mind while having a healthy, clear direction: good aim and purpose while relating well with others... is so key. People need a mind security "firewall" for healthy, common sense operation in a world of unhealthy temptations and distractions. Humans are directly and indirectly beating this planet and its occupants up due to the disabling lack of information and understanding of what and how things happen... cause and effect. One effective solution to the mental illness crisis is for people to just be positive, creative reminders for each other regarding what is at stake, what is happening and how things are happening. Reminders of what we hold in trust for future generations. What we owe in terms of decency to each other right now. Being directly sane to eachother and indirectly "certifiably sane" in all our actions... our consumption.
REPRESENTATION "STANDING" FOR THE VOICELESS/VOTELESS:
Many issues, especially potential environmental catastrophes caused by human production and consumption, affect not just the living, but also future generations. The bias in our political system against addressing the interests of non humans and future generations poses serious obstacles in solving long-term environmental problems. Because non-humans and future generations have no voice or vote... their is a representation crisis... and beyond the "invisible hand" of collective human action, unelected judges are well suited to protect these interests.
So an important question is "WHO HAS STANDING" to sue on behalf of non-human's and future generations? The Supreme Court's Article III standing test requires plaintiffs to demonstrate that they have personally suffered an injury that is actual and imminent, and not merely conjectural or hypothetical. For non-governmental plaintiffs, there is arguably conflicting law regarding whether and when probabilistic risks justify standing, especially where a plaintiff seek a substantive remedy. For uncertain risks that have a probability of less than fifty percent of occurring during the plaintiff's lifetime, a court might deny standing because the risks are too uncertain.
So another important question is... "HOW CAN YOU ELECT STANDING FOR THE MASSES OF WHOM WE HAVE NO MECHANISM TO READ THEIR VOTES."
ANOTHER QUESTION: WHO RATES TO REPRESENT THE VOICELESS AND VOTELESS WHEN UNELECTED?
THE ART OF EMPOWERMENT & RUT OF DISEMPOWERMENT:
Certified, accurate information posted directly to what people are voting or buying into is key to finding common direction(invisible hand principle) to the keys of guiding, world health centered, responsible, human effected developments and evolutions. The art of witholding or distorting information to sell a product, action or idea, is as old as the first act of human BS and relies on the fact that people can be taken as fools. Starting point is with personal awareness of the cause and effect of empowerment and dis-empowerment in all thoughts words and actions. Is disempowerment a knee jerk, human evolved survival habit? Haven't we evolved beyond the "every man for himself" attitude. You ever wonder why some people naturally are "pick-R- uppers" and others seem to be natural "put-R-downers?" Now how does that happen? - Force of habit, how they were raised, influenced and educated. We can be medicine or poison to ourselves and each other in each moment of thought and action depending upon how we are centered, mindful and "setup" to operate in a world of conflicting power schemes and temptations.
Where the rubber meets the road, beyond all religious dogma, one of the world's greatest role models to ever selflessly serve on this planet was a woman named Mother Teresa, who once said, " If we have no peace it is because we have forgotten that we all belong to each other. " This website is an attempt to dive into the pool of good reminders and splash around like a jerk.
