Nature Will Reclaim What Is Hers

Dog at Sawmill

The day will come when nature will reclaim what is hers. That is not speculation, it is the honest truth. In the grand scheme of things, modern humans have only been around for a split second.

For several hundred thousand years our ancestors were bands of nomadic tribes who followed the herds. Around 10,000 years ago our ancestors developed agriculture and domesticated livestock (animal husbandry).

We only entered the space age a few decades ago.

For all the progress we claim to have made, we still kill each other over money, jealously, and religion. How do we rate whether a society is successful? Maybe by how well we take care of each other? Studies show Neanderthals took care of their sick and injured. Even primates take care of their injured. Yet, we have people dying because they can not afford medical care.

In our lust for money human compassion has been cast to the wayside.

survivalistThe U.S. has turned into a nation of waste and Gluttony.

We probably throw away more food at buffet bars then some families see in a month.

We spend as much money on weddings as our homes cost. When did it become “ok” to have a wedding that cost, $20k, $30k, or even $50 thousand dollars?

We buy vehicles that cost almost as much as our homes.

Our children are spoiled with the latest and greatest of electronic toys.

Obesity is turning into an epidemic.

A record number people are receiving government assistance.

We give our jobs to china so we can exploit cheap labor.

We allow illegal immigrants into the nation so they can do backbreaking work few others want to do.

We turn to the government to fix our problems.

Our children have the newest brand name shoes built in overseas sweatshops.
