I just watched Chris Hedges interviewed by Bill Moyers. Chris pulled all the dots together, pointing out that the ultimate result of rampant corporatism, as it has evolved, is the collapse of the ecosystem that supports us and our final demise as a species. Occupy should keep its eye on that ball. There are many struggles people face at the hands of corporations, but they all reduce to this ultimate truth.

You should include the interview link in the body of your post. Then twitter it. This interview and all other good materials should be circulated out to social media. Let Me know if you place the video link into your post and I will then tweet it.

When I watched the interview, it seemed that Hedges felt the corporations had already won, and there was little hope. I remember Hedges being interviewed in New York after the Occupy movement had swept the world with people rising up and getting out on the streets. He had hopes that the movement would grow without pausing, as did Michael Moore. Can we win the epic battle with the corporations or not?

We are going to become extinct. There isn't much we can do about that. We are in a technology trap. We can't feed the world without mechanized farming and a fossil fuel based system. Wind, solar, and tidal energy sources are decades away from being cost effective and may never fully replace fossil fuels. That means poison ourselves along with the planet or starve.

We have the technology - we have the capability we certainly have the need.

It is all here and ready to use - and this is just what I have stumbled across.

Spread the word.

Green Tech. New and improved - now with Liquid Metal Battery for efficient power storage and distribution.

This is where we should be going: Green Energy we have the technology we just need to use it. This is what I am talking about. A clean future to be implemented NOW!
