about anything, legally or otherwise. Man is the worlds destroyer, this we’ve always known, but surely as we barrel headfirst into global warming and the extinction of endangered species we can finally put on the brakes and exercise restraint?
A friend of mine recently posted a picture from a hunting safari website showing an elephant that had been slaughtered while eating (leaves still hanging from it’s mouth), and the proud family crouched over it’s corpse for their photo op.
Shame on you!
If that wasn’t bad enough, scrolling further there were pics of dead lions too, including white lions!
Are you people out of your minds?
And for what purpose?
To feed and clothe your families?
To sustain your village?
To satisfy your need for power and glee, to give your adrenalin a place to go when your lives aren’t interesting enough to stimulate you!
We accept that meat is part of the modern diet, it’s pointless to argue that point after so many centuries of burgers, roasts and barbeques. With that in mind one can say that to hunt to sustain life has certain merits, but not this. Tourists with large pockets of dough and a need for a good story are not valid reasons.
It’s not that I’m an earthy, tree hugger, bedecked in straw-woven necklaces, just a simple woman with a conscience.
I actually do understand the primal urge to hunt, I get the need to conquer and all the other great stuff that makes us morbidly mediocre as humans. But that’s just it – with all the education, all the proof of how fragile our planet has become, we no longer have a reason to accept this mediocrity, this utter failure as beings with higher consciousness.
In short – we know better!
The world is slowly consuming itself, or rather we, as people, are consuming it. Instant gratification is still, unbelievably, the driving force in humanity.
We are the guardians of the earth and we have failed dismally in this task.
The Universe was created on the principles of balance – night and day, good and bad etc. As humans we are tipping that balance, tempting nature.
One day the world is going to repay mankind for it’s abuses – by ceasing to exist, or creating an eco-system so uninhabitable that we ourselves become like animals. When that happens no amount of money in the world will save us!
Just a little something for our kids to look forward to….
