Hope Report – 9/17/2010

Inspiration

Info on green jobs–I believe green jobs are ultimately a huge opportunity for business to make lots & lots of money, to produce lots & lots of employment, and will help heal the planet as well.

Australian Aborigines “world’s first astronomers.” An Australian study has uncovered signs that the country’s ancient Aborigines may have been the world’s first stargazers, pre-dating Stonehenge and Egypt’s pyramids by thousands of years.

The News

More positive developments for Korea. I hope the recent rice helped: “2 Koreas discuss reuniting families divided by war.”

Good news on the Gulf oil well–“Gulf oil well on verge of being plugged for good.”

“Census: 1 in 7 Americans lives in poverty”
The above is a challenging article to me. I believe that ultimately for the good of our psychology and for the good of the planet, it is better to move to a communal living situation and/or extended family living situation. The nuclear family model is actually highly unusual, and is indicative of the breakdown of family support. It also consumes a lot of resources.

I also feel that the government needs to start creating good jobs for people on unemployment, ones that help rebuild the infrastructure in a green way. I would like for unemployment benefits to be extended forever.

In a civilized society, we will not have to race and compete so hard with each other. In a civilized society, we will work less, and enjoy life more. In a civilized society, many more people will become paid artisans and entertainers, and they will enjoy their work.

In a civilized society, everyone will have good, basic, inexpensive health care. What is happening right now in the US is atypical of what is going on in the world. We paid only $30 for an emergency room visit, ekg and consultation with doctors in Croatia. We paid $1800 for a hernia surgery in Mexico. The US is ripping people off, people. They wanted to charge us $600 for some cotton stuffed up Smith’s nose. This is criminal, not sustainable, and must change. I RESPECTFULLY COMMAND IT SO.

Psychology

I hope people stop feeling that they need to kill animals in order to feel powerful:

The Weather

Looks like Karl has moved off the coast of Mexico, but it has developed into a hurricane. I hope it will go away. I’ve been watching Julia and Igor for five days. I hope they will go away. Fanapi hasn’t progressed toward land; that’s good. I RESPECTFULLY COMMAND THE HURRICANES TO GO AWAY.

Severe rains in Slovenia. I hope it’s OK.

I’m hoping the extreme drought in Louisiana & W. Virginia goes away.
