Who the F**k Do You Think You Are

It's time for a look in the mirror.
Who the F**k Do You Think You Are
Chicago, Il 2003. Brian Ulrich

This article is available in:

You blame China. You blame India. You blame America. You blame the CEOs, the oil companies, the vague and incoherent 'system,' the international regulatory regimes, the hypocrisy of the left, the righteous of the right, the educators, the economy, your parents, your childhood, your job, your bank account, your mental health, your government, everyone and everything but yourself. Wake up! This is no joke. Ecocide is actually happening and your five planet-lifestyle is the primary cause of it.

brilliant. absolutely brilliant. for all the complaints against the corporations etc. the simple truth is really that /we/ are the ones who keep buying their products, and /we/ are the ones who demand more of these products (and hence more resources being used).

i think that if we all just cut down (for once) - eat less, buy less - and maybe plant more trees, we'd live a little longer. after all the earth's been around for millenia, she doesn't need us. but we need her, and we need to save ourselves, so it's time we put this into action and do something.

Nice piece. Two points;

1. For past six years, I have taken steps to reduce to eliminate my 'five-planet' lifestyle. During this time environmental destruction has increased. Therefore;

2. One must do more than change patterns of consumption to prevent further 'ecocide'.

I don't propose anything.
I was noting that placing blame on yourself is just as useless as placing blame on others.

The bailout of the US automotive industry indicated that consumer choice cannot solve our problems. Even if we reject ecocidal products, governments will use tax dollars to perpetuate failed ideas.
Hopefully, this trend will not continue with the Keystone pipeline.
