Burl B. Hall alongside Meredith Hall Are there many people who feel we live in a Healthy World? Do we experience hopelessness because of the big monies that own our world? Are we alienated living on our Planet? Are we alienated within our selves? Are many of us stating I don't care? I'm going to be dead anyway regarding the future of our species? Is that not caring, i.e., being alienated? It's interesting that Native Americans used to consider the consequences of their choices on their children through 7 generations. Yes, they targeted 7 generations. Why don't we have such a long-term mentality 7 generations to the future? Is it not true that most corporations speak of 5-year plans versus 7 generations? Indeed, even worse, their deepest attention is on the bottom line as of the next stockholders meeting. "Whoop-E" President Trump signifies. Do we foster deep love and caring regarding our future children? Of course, many of us Europeans/Americans ask; why should we foster 7 generations? In other words, "Who cares about our children and future generations?" One woman I knew stated, "I don't care about future generations, I'll be dead!" What kind of mentality is that? And, here we are, under the Corporations who get their jollies in fostering a monetary system that doesn't have anything behind it. What happened to the gold system? "Where did the gold go?" Ideas? I bet you know if you think about it. In this mess, how do we foster our Planet Earth in continuing to allow people, animals, plants, and various bodies to live in our world? According to various scientific studies, it appears extinction rates on our planet have arisen. Could it be that we the people are dancing towards a mass extinction alongside the dinosaurs? At this point, we must face the inevitable question: "Are we the people of the apocalypse"? Looked at with clear logic, the answer arises: "Apparently YES, we are heading towards apocalypse. No neurotic god is going to do it. We need to do it. Can we recognize the patterns of our psychopathology? Are we blind in not realizing our fostering a world that will be the death of future generations? Can you see the pattern? Where do we go from here? Is there a change in facilitating peace, love and understanding? To whom do we call? It's us! It's you Reader! It's We the People who has allowed this psychopathic craziness that has lead us towards the destruction of our lives. It's we that must make changes. As a species, we must grow up. No externalized savior is going to get us out of this mess. We are the Savior that we need.
