Save Australia’s Animals: The Pain We Will Never Know

Source: ladbible

Human beings, the so-called intelligent species, are so callously cruel and insensitive, that in their imagined achievement they call “civilization,” they have forgotten to respect the planet they should consider their home. They have lost respect for their fellow creatures. They have lost respect for Mother Nature.

In their everyday hustle and bustle, pursuing money and other imagined property, they don’t care about the disasters in the natural world anymore. They don’t care whether thousands of species are going extinct. And this is happening when humans are supposedly at the peak of their technological and civilizational peak in history. Well, they have peaked too early.

Shame on us for letting this happen.

The world must be grieving right now for a billion animals lost to this mass extinction event, perhaps the greatest disaster to animal life in living memory. While all of us have our part to play in this disaster thanks to the obstinance in our indifference to climate change, but also criminal negligence in terms of protecting the environment and wildlife, especially on behalf of Australia’s current administration.

Policies propelled by Australia’s conservative Liberal Party Prime Minister and climate change denier Scott Morrison are a part of the problem in the worsening wildfires in Australia. It is an eye-opener for the Australian people too who have been supporting ignorant politicians and regressive climate policies for a very long time, other than their problematically notorious anti-immigration xenophobia.

What is encouraging is that common Australian people are fighting these fires bravely. They have witnessed the disasters firsthand and they realize that they are of man’s own making. They are asking tough questions of their inept leadership. They are demanding answers. We must appreciate the selfless firefighting volunteers and the wildlife rescuers and strengthen their hands.

It is indeed our responsibility to do the firefighting at least because we simply cannot undo and reverse the damage that we have done to the planet in terms of both Amazon and Australian forest wildfires. Therefore, I urge all the readers to do their bit to save wildlife in Australia. A little help can save one more koala or kangaroo and many more endangered species indigenous to Australia that we were not even aware existed.

Working for My Sanity

What is work to you?

A distraction? A repetitive everyday cycle to shroud the enormous pointlessness of existence? A hopeless, pointless effort to make sense of your relation with the world?

A compulsion? A condemnation? The price of the existence to live through the contract of a slave by birth? A fear of not paying your bills?

A delusion? An imagined sense of purpose extending all the selfishness, survivalism and competitiveness of the animal instincts of human beings?

Or a false sense of intellectualism that allows us to forget that we are nothing more than animals?

A pastime? Or your only shot at socializing?

To me, it’s mostly about just keeping my sanity.
