The Wildebeest are strong, fast, tough, and physical but aren't very smart. When the members of their herd become weak from age or injury, they're not smart enough to prevent the weak from being eaten. While there is often attempts at helping to protect each other, (especially the mother of a baby wildebeest), they fail and the hyenas and lions survive because of this. It is natural.

It was natural that coyotes or wild dogs would kill and eat calves, and my farmer/partner of mine lost two calves to them. He solved the problem by putting a pair of donkeys with the cows, and we never lost another cow. The donkeys sometimes aggravated the cows, but they stayed with the herd.

I soon learned exactly how the donkeys solved the situation when another friend brought his dog to the farm. I had seen this dog run among the cows without fear. We decided to walk out into the field towards the herd and the dog came with us. The donkeys were never aggressive towards people but dogs were a different story. The male donkey spotted the dog and instantly was at full speed charging the dog but was 50 yards away! Just as instantly the dog was running away back toward the fence full speed. The dog slammed into the barb wire fence but never stopped scrambling until he was past the fence and kept running. The donkey was satisfied that the dog was not in the field and stopped at the fence. It was fascinating to me that the dog, (that had never encountered a donkey), instantly knew the animal was smart and would defend the field aggressively, (unlike the cows).

In nature, lions, hyenas, and dogs cannot afford to be injured, because then they are just another weak thing to be eaten, which of course explains why they attack the weak in the first place. It's a tough world,... but humans have the capacity for a different world.

Humans need a Mother's Love for Her Baby type of mentality. When enough humans agree that our most important focus should be to protect the weak, the better world we long for, will arrive.

I'm not sure the point of the story, but I've always thought a mothers love is the most powerful emotion on earth. Always has been. There is absolutely nothing a mother won't do to protect their young. That extends into some herds and packs of animals.

[-] 3 points by windyacres (1002) 1 year ago

Protect the weak is the point. When society protects weak people from anything and anyone, the world becomes better. We should make it our mantra!

Use the natural Mother's Love for her young, as mankind's primary focus for one another!

I just watched a documentary yesterday: http://www.filmsforaction.org/watch/surviving_progress_2011/

It appears humans are the first things ever with the ability to ask "why?".

Other creatures can guess and test, but they get stuck at that point. They can remember what happened with previous tests and experiences, but they will never wonder why. This makes sense to me, but I'm open to debate as usual.

I realized that we are the first creatures to understand the concept of evolution. With that understanding, we are able to witness and control our own evolution. It should be interesting to watch, especially when more people become aware and global actions for intentional evolution begin to occur.

[-] 2 points by windyacres (1002) 1 year ago

Humans from the beginning until now have had to struggle and sometimes compete for survival. We have reached the point with technology that a transition from dog eat dog to OZ is possible!

As you said, we are able to witness and control our own evolution.

global actions for intentional evolution begin to occur.

Like GMO foods introducing mutation factors?

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

That's an "us and them" concept.

Classism has been with us for the longest time, but now it's getting politicised and given the PC treatment.

What really surprises me is those who support the classists, assuming it will be reciprocal.

Sorry to piss on your parade, peeps, but these NPD sufferers smile at you once, and forget you ever existed.

Are You sure that they are smiling at someone?

[-] 3 points by gnomunny (6587) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

There's a fine line between a smile and a smirk.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (28279) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Ahhhhh - yes I could see them smirking - and then completely forgetting the whole thing as they checked the stock exchange or contemplated their toe.

[-] 2 points by gnomunny (6587) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

Yes indeed, stock tickers and toe-jam. Far more important than the needs and concerns of the citizens.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (28279) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Citizens? Citizens? ( they wonder ) Oh yes the help - now back to navel gazing.

[-] 3 points by gnomunny (6587) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

The "help," heheheh.

I forgot. I was so used to calling them (us) by the old terminology. How 20th century of me!

I used to be the 'help' back when I was a delivery driver. Lots of big-name clients like Monsanto and BofA. But now I'm what they call a "useless eater."

↥twinkle ↧stinkle permalink

Ahhh but you were considered that then as well ( "useless eater.") . Because you only existed to your immediate supervisor - TPTB thought of you as a number on the account sheet - damnable useless overhead.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28279) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

OH - well - not "us" - we don't work directly for them - so to them "we" don't really exist.

Monsanto will not last.

One can hope that Monsatan will crumble - but what will they have introduced into the environment into the food chain before they do?

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

GE trees are a major concern we are not addressing as yet.

Here's a short vid from Dr. Suzuki on the topic.

(quote) Trees are being genetically engineered to give them unnatural characteristics, such as the ability to kill insects, tolerate toxic herbicides, grow abnormally fast, or have altered wood composition. The paper pulp industry has to remove lignin from wood pulp before it can be used to make paper, which is an expensive part of the process. So, the biotech industry is working to create trees with lower lignin content. The problem is, lignin is what gives trees their structural integrity.

It’s what allows trees to stand strong in wind and other weather, and to withstand diseases and damage from insect and animal browsing. Low-lignin trees are weaker and less able to withstand these environmental stresses. Dead low-lignin trees also decompose faster, releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere more quickly, which contributes to climate change. (unquote)

Worse ( yeah - worse - a real horror ) - These bio-engineered crops and other life - like salmon - they carry the introduced element that makes their mutation possible - that means that that mutagen ( yes folks I said it - mutagen ) is loose in our food supply - Hey girls in the abnormal sex trade - insist on a condom or you might give birth to some nasty cross-bred horse or dog or something - the rest of you normal people should consider what your body might decide to include into your DNA from what you are eating.


Sorry folks for that nasty sex trade image - but - seriously - the mutagen has been introduced to our biological base - you wanna hazard a guess as to what is possible?

[-] 3 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Makes one wonder, re the end game plan.

I can see why some countries are choosing to burn off their whole crop for a year's famine, over a future controlled by these criminals.

[-] 3 points by DKAtoday (28279) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Burn today what might give life but at such a horrible cost that death is preferable.

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Still watching the blowback from the infected (infested, more like) wheat crops. Hoping that the real criminals get to pay for their lies and deceit.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (28279) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Since this latest issue is about wheat that was never approved for use - was never sold. And the farmers are taking up suit as to why that strain of wheat that was rejected for use over 5 years ago is now sprouting in someones ( their ) field. Well let us pray that the courts will start supporting those who have been wronged = the independent farmer.

Looks like MonS doesn't like having to deal with actual regulations.

http://www.croplifeaustralia.org.au/default.asp?V_DOC_ID=2683

It seems ironic at a time when the Federal Government is seeking to develop and implement a National Food Plan, take advantage of the opportunities of the Asian Century and make Australian agriculture more productive and competitive that it would seek to legislate in a manner that only undermines the farming sector.

“You would have to seriously question how, irrespective of party status, any Member of Parliament who purports to represent rural and regional interests could have supported this bill in its current form.

A daily itinerary for every single asshole would be nice - you know - just to warn the population in those areas that there is a highly toxic substance in the neighborhood - where and when - so as they could avoid it don't cha know. A Public service warning type of thing.

Every organism has the ability to reproduce at a rate greater then that which the environment can sustain. Protecting the weak combined with irresponsible reproduction isn't doing society or nature any favors.

[-] 1 points by windyacres (1002) 1 year ago

Leave nature alone. Humans, however, should all be seen as a Mother feels for her young child. When enough humans agree with a primary focus to protect any and all of the weak humans in this way, we will have the better world we long for.

[-] 1 points by Sandy0621 (175) 1 year ago

One of our problems is that we've only looked at what we want as human beings instead of how we fit into the natural world. Simply protecting the weak among humanity isn't good enough. It make matters worse for all when you look at only humanity and ignore nature and our place in it.

[-] 2 points by windyacres (1002) 1 year ago

"Simply protecting the weak among humanity isn't good enough," but it would be a great step one! There's much to learn from nature and our place in it, we can agree with that.
