"We Don’t Deserve Another Planet

"We Don’t Deserve Another Planet

by E.R. Bills / February 20th, 2012
I’m scared. I worry a lot.
I’m afraid for our future. I’m afraid for our species.
I’m afraid of our species.
Homo Sapiens corrupt or foul any ecosystem that lies in the path of their economic interests. Homo Sapiens marginalize and/or exterminate almost every species of fellow inhabitant that it comes into contact with. Homo Sapiens are defiling the gasping blue orb they call home, but they presse on almost entirely heedless of their loathsome wrongheadedness.
You, me and every human being up and down our street, across the nation and throughout the world, en masse, comprise a sinister planetary menace. It is not our intent; we just can’t or won’t control ourselves.
Fort Worth writer and former resident John Graves once said that human beings would be finished when they stopped “understanding the old pull toward green things and living things.” But we’re already there. We are monstrously out of sync with the natural world. We no longer even take part in the most basic facets of our own sustenance.
Technology has replaced survival processes with leisure. Our livelihoods are based on ancillary subsistence modes which translate into to petty barter for factory farming and mechanized industrial slaughter. We live on pre-processed pseudo-nourishment. We reside in prefabricated shelters bathed in artificial light and filled with conditioned air. We don’t thrive as vital, fully-functional creatures; we merely exist as detached bystanders.
In our natural state we were never idle or bored or prone to weight gains due to a sedentary lifestyle. We were constantly involved in the means of survival, hands-on, acute and in-tune. We didn’t need Vegas or roller coasters or Viagara. Every day was a gamble and every food-source capture or kill was a victory if not an outright adrenaline rush. In our present state we struggle to survive business as usual with any useful, natural instincts intact.
Several seconds before the late August 2011 earthquake near the National Zoo in DC, flamingos grouped together, upper mammals climbed trees and lemurs sounded alarm calls. In our early existence, we probably weren’t much different than the spooked animals at the National Zoo. We probably sensed phenomena like earthquakes at an elemental level, before they happened, because we were more in touch with our habitat. Truth be told, we arguably knew more then as preyed-upon primitives than we know now as reckless louts at the top of the food chain.
We are a species run amok, obtuse and self-destructive. It’s time to debate Capitalism in a world of limited resources; it’s time to have a referendum on unaccountable Technology. If the swift-shod proliferation of excessive consumption in the name of ever-increasing profit margins reduces humanity to a lethal scourge, Capitalism is an evil that can no longer be tolerated. If the unavoidable byproducts of technology are human overpopulation, the pollution or contamination of our air, water and food supplies, biological exploitation and artificial preservation — all created at the expense of the planet and our fellow species –Technology is an evil that can no longer be promoted. If Capitalism and technology cannot be practiced with conscience, then we cannot conscientiously engage in them.
These issues warrant debate in the fore of this historical moment because humankind is toying with the notion of exploring and/or colonizing other earth-like planets in their galactic vicinity. It’s one thing for us to plunder and savage our own home. It’s quite another to destroy someone else’s home.
We must stop averting our eyes. We need to quit ignoring our crimes. In the grand scheme of things we’ve become a vicious virus that should be isolated and confined, allowing our madness to run its course, come what may.
As bad as things stand on Earth for inhabitants other than Homo Sapiens, at least Homo Sapiens are contained here. And the fledgling life-support and propulsion technologies that keep us from exploring deep-space ensure our quarantine.
If we perish, our perilous, suicidal propensities should die with us and not be flung amongst the galaxies to infect or endanger other living systems. The species Homo Sapiens had its chance.
Tragically, we’re wasting it."


Would the Palestinian leaders withdraw their approval of the continued betrayal by Raji Sourani of myself and my children to the ongoing zionist Gestapo torture here, in Australia, before it is too late ?
I ask every reader to send immediately protest messages to the following email addresses, and with a copy to my email address (ben.merhav@gmail.com).

1. to the Australian government (emailJulia.Gillard.MP@aph.gov.au;r.mcclelland.mp@aph.gov.au) a message along the following lines :

" I protest the continuous torture of the Australian citizen Benjamin Merhav by sleep deprivation and his daughter and son by psychiatric torture in Melbourne, Australia.

This torture is perpetrated against Benjamin Merhav directly by the clandestine arm of the State of Israel (the zionist Gestapo), and indirectly by the same culprit against Benjamin's daughter and son.

I demand that the Australian government instruct ASIO to protect these Australian citizens, and stop these terrorist crimes by a foreign government on Australian soil immediately !"

2. to ICJ-Australia and ICJ Secretariat (email president@icj-aust.org.au,chair@icj-aust.org.au,sec-gen@icj-aust.org.au,
info@icj.dk,info@icj.org
) a message along the following lines :

"I protest your refusal to investigate Benjamin Merhav's complaint against the Australian government's approval of ASIO's violation of the rule of law in Australia, regarding the continuous torture in Melbourne of himself, his daughter and his son , all Australian citizens, by the clandestine arm of the State of Israel (the zionist Gestapo).

I demand your immediate intervention to protect these Australian citizens, to stop the perpetration of these terrorist crimes In Australia, and to end these violations of the rule of law by the Australian government in Australia."

3. to the PCHR and to all the Palestinian leaders in occupied Palestine ( email
english@palestine-info.co.uk ;
pchr@pchrgaza.org
) message along the following
lines :


"I protest the betrayal of Benjamin Merhav by Raji Sourani to the zionist Gestapo's torture.I demand Sourani's replacement on the ICJ and on FIDH with a honest Palestinian patriot who would initiate protest action against the torture of Benjamin Merhav, his daughter, and his son by the zionist Gestapo in Australia.

I demand that the Palestinian leaders encourage Palestinians and their supporters to protest this ongoing terrorist torture by the zionist Gestapo, and to demand that it should stop immediately."
=====================

DISBAND NOW THE ZIONIST APARTHEID REGIME OF ISRAEL !


A JUST SOLUTION TO THE ZIONIST CONFLICT IN PALESTINE CANNOT BE ACHIEVED WITHOUT FIRST DISBANDING THE ZIONIST APARTHEID REGIME OF ISRAEL !
FOLLOWING THE DISBANDING OF THIS RACIST REGIME, A DEMOCRATIC, NON-RACIST STATE, TO WHICH ALL THE PALESTINIAN REFUGEES WOULD BE INVITED TO RETURN, SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED ON THE ENTIRE AREA OF HISTORIC PALESTINE !

THIS SHOULD BE WRITTEN INTO THE PLATFORM OF THE BDS MOVEMENT NOW, AS THE PURPOSE OF THE INTERNATIONAL BOYCOTT OF THE ZIONIST APARTHEID REGIME OF ISRAEL !
