Once again we are being lied to. Once again we are faced with the disastrous environmental consequences of our insatiable desire for profit…..and the mass media is….wait for it…..silent. Are you aware of what has been going on in Southern Louisiana? Have you seen any information on the news about the sinkhole? About the pending death of the entire southern part of that great state? Hmmmm….WTF? Enenews has been following this terrifying story since the sinkhole was but a wee depression. I have been reading updates every day- and it makes me sick. Why is the government hiding this information from the people? Why? Perhaps it’s for the same reason that the true impact of the Fukushima disaster is being withheld: The truth is an affront to profit. These disasters need to be public knowledge- we need the truth in order to make informed decisions about how we want to live our lives. I cannot live like an ostrich with my head buried in the sand, or worse, living in some kind of twisted self-delusion,a panglossian nightmare, looking in the mirror and repeating over and over how we live in the best of all possible worlds, until my children become sick with radiation poisoning or succumb to some other modern capitalist disease. I haven’t posted here for a while, my life being ravaged by unemployment and having to deal with the realities of trying to educate my autistic son within the narrow confines of what we call our public education system. But I felt that this story needed to be told- If not by somebody else- then by me. This needs to be shared. People need to know what is going on, what is is being wrought upon this earth in the shallow name of profit.
And last but not least this bit of unbelievable bullshit from the super-happy-fun government of Japan:
