It certainly seems like humanity as a species is disintegrating. We’re so hung up on how much garbage we can accumulate for ourselves individually that nobody has considered the global impact of eight billion hairless apes all doing the same selfish shit simultaneously. It’s fascinating to watch shorelines creep up, temperatures rise, forests erode, and trash piles march ever higher above the horizon. We ceaselessly want above anything we could conceivably earn, and this behavior is rewarded. I can’t say that I have all the answers, or even a handful of good ones, but I can say that what we’re doing isn’t super conducive to our species existing in the next hundred years.
The more I think about it, the less confident I am in our species ever reversing course. I guess I’ll just go along with it, what other choice do I have? Bleh. I don’t know. I just am not at all interested in accumulating stuff. I enjoy things making life easier, but at the same time, I have a pretty narrow focus. There are a lot of extras I can easily live without.
I need a hobby.
