An old friend of mine asked me to watch the ‘mercial on StoryofStuff.com and consider what they’re saying.
It’s 20 minutes but if you’re up to it, it’s a well designed and put together commentary on the economy and environment, the problems and possible solutions. It’s not as strident as many people and ideas in the Green movement, but it has faults. Important ones. It’s description of the problem is inaccurate and misleading and seems to have the purpose of limiting the possible solutions to those the the commentator prefers.
It is not all wrong, and the speaker appears sincere and full of the best of intentions. But good intentions and sincerity are all too common among those deceived, even only partially.
In the interest of following our responsibility to be wise as serpents in all things, here’s what stuck out to me while watching the video.
Note: most of this will not make much sense unless you’ve watched the video.
“It’s the government’s job to watch out for us, to take care of us. It’s their JOB”
Corporation is bigger than government. Government wants to please Corp more.
