23. K&R It is the apathy of evil.

Bad things end when good people refuse to support or profit from them.

I've always felt that was how we ended slavery. It all started with people who refused to profit from evil themselves. Even if it meant they couldn't be taken "seriously" they stood against it.

There can be no doubt that what the corporations are doing to our world and most importantly to future generations is anything but evil.

Obfuscating the truth because it is bad for the bottom line? Even if that truth is that the biosphere as we know it, as our species, as all species, evolved and thrived in, is coming to an end?

We alone hold the power to change it and the idea of not joining with the corporations in the battle against reality is the one that is met with derision, scorn or ignorance.

If the good people lose this battle, we will have lost the war that has raged against intolerance, ignorance and insanity for our entire existence. Every victory, every written word, every artwork created, every small inching forward our race has made will be for naught.

The stakes have never been higher. The call for action never louder.

Extremely daunting and very depressing if you think about it. Which is why most people don't.
