We empower ourselves by acknowledging realities made unpleasant by popular delusion.
We evade progress – even survival – by avoiding rational critics of the human regime.
We instead empower leaders who increase ours at expense to other human groups, other species, and Earth. We can empower more unifying, global leaders.
We kill political dissidents by the hundreds of millions with wars.
We threaten global annihilation of our own species – and many others – with weapons of mass destruction.
We insure geographical autonomy with this malignant divisiveness we proudly call patriotism. Which also diverts great resources from sustaining life and quality of life, to threatening and destroying life.
We emphasize our own immediate whims, needs, and desires in political policies and speeches. While minimizing, avoiding, or even denying our long term needs, and the needs of nature.
We increase our population despite visibly gassing ourselves with smog, which also worsens disastrous global warming. And despite increasing water acidification and pollution on a massive scale.
We have negligently and willfully irradiated Earth thousands of times.
We regularly extinguish entire other species by crowding them out with our lifestyles and increasing numbers.
We are The Human Dictatorship. Shouldn’t we make this more democratic for all of nature?
