Do we keep our heads in the sand regarding climate change? Can we see the patterns across arenas such as politics, business, education, and health regarding how these patterns affect us? Could one of the roots of the problem be standardization and the goal of never-ending growth? Dare we identify our corporate "never ending growth" mentality as one with the definition of cancer, which speaks to cells whose growth has gone wild?
Is the demolishing of our lands the result of a cancerous growth we call progress? And what happens to the host of this progressive growth when it has taken over the whole body?
We simply die. Our children die, our loved ones die and the Earth becomes as lifeless as the moon.
