Why should we all labour to enrich the banks?
It is when profit becomes the dominant motive that the cycle of disaster begins.
This month, March 2015, saw one of the biggest and certainly the most expensive building in Europe to be opened, amid a flurry of protests.
It had cost over 1.3 Billion Euros to construct in a time of imposed austerity.
This monstrosity was the new headquarters of the ECB-European Central Bank based in Frankfurt in Germany!
This has come in the midst of some of the most severe austerity ever imposed on the people of Europe post WW2.
There is little more to say…it speaks for itself!
Mother Earth is blissfully unaware of man-made austerity…she just keeps growing and giving for those who tend her with love and care.
Hope for the future abounds!
Mother Nature, left unfettered, knows no austerity!
The abundance of the Earth is pushing through at a fast rate here at bealtaine Cottage and this is because the earth here is treated as sacred, nurtured and fed.
On the same subject, I read this piece by George Monbiot recently…
“We’re treating soil like dirt. It’s a fatal mistake, because all human life depends on it.” ~George Monbiot http://gu.com/p/47vg4/stw
This is so important if we are to avoid hunger in generations to come…we must give back to the Earth, for she gives unrelentingly to us all.
On a related subject, I was thinking about the mantra I live by…”Don’t throw it away, there is no away!”
It’s time to introduce a deposit scheme on every take-away piece of packaging!
Make it worthwhile for rubbish to be collected and returned!
If every plastic bottle, cup, bag,etc had a deposit attached to it, there would be no rubbish on roadsides in Ireland!
It is clear that the present economic model works by imposing its waste products on the environment!
This has got to change if there is to be any sort of decent future for our children and grandchildren!
On that note, time for a large pot of tea and a chat with Sammy-Bear!
