The Birth Of This Blog
Why am I writing this blog?
My life is by no means perfectly sustainable, but I try! It’s mainly through trying I have found many barriers preventing the average person from leading a sustainable life. As a society we are becoming more aware of the lies that have been fed too us over the decades! With more stories of corruption, devastation, greed and war surfacing daily, people have had enough! It is time for change!
Recently there has been a rise in action to bring about this change. We need to embrace these actions such as the ‘Occupy Movement’ building on them to achieve a more sustainable and equal world for everyone. Too many people think of these views as some ‘hippy shit’. This a major misconception people have, which is mainly due to what they are fed by the media, which too many people take for gospel! The more people who do something the more likely we are to succeed with achieving a better Earth.
Education is the key to our success. With education comes the wisdom to be able to stand up against the worlds problems in a Nonviolent way. It was talking to my friends and work colleagues that I found people don’t fully understand my passion for living sustainably, ending corporate greed, living equally, living in harmony with others and Mother Earth. You may say these issues do not fit together but I believe they are all connected. We are dictated to, what to buy, what to believe, how and when to do it.
Mother Earth provides for us, with plants such as Hemp which can be used for clothing and many different fuels to name a few. Yet we continue to use crude oil, which is not sustainable, very costly and it’s extraction causes so much environmental destruction. One main reasons for not using hemp is that people use it to get ‘stoned’, but hemp comes from a different plant of the same family as cannabis. It’s information like this that can help educate people to stand up and change the world.
So I am setting up this blog purely to share the research, knowledge and thoughts I have also organisations that are also trying to change the world. All in an effort to try make people realise that we can stand up against those who continue to run our world purely to make profit for themselves.
Please read what I put forward, comment and add to it after all we need to work together in order to bring about this change for everyone!
