Consumerism is the religion of the world.
It is destroying the planet.
It is the antichrist
– the opposite of life-giving, of healing, of resurrection.
It is about trust in yourself,
not sharing, greed.
It creates war and poverty.
It builds present presents and walls.
Time to cast out this false God
this idol of “you deserve it”
this spirit of “me first” and to hell with everybody else.
It pits person against person,
creating nations that war against each other
blinding us to our true nature
of oneness of unity,
that we are all in this together on this life-raft we call Earth
and if we don’t pull together we’ll discover
to our horror
there is no planet B.
Instead of trying to Terraform Mars
why don’t we re-form Terra
(which is the old name for Earth)?
