From The Deathbed Of A Dying Planet:
#4 Earth's Edict
Earth must be returned to its natural life state of symbiosis. Only with
all of its component parts exchanging one form of life for another, can it continue to live.
Man has disturbed its delicate balance's strength for so long and so greatly, that he has pronounced its sentence of
Diagnosis: terminal cancer (mankind).
Prognosis: vital life support systems failure imminent; death inevitable.
"Man" himself must be held responsible for the wanton destruction of his world. His callous disregard for all that
has nurtured and sustained his very life is nothing less horrific than matricide. As
he would kill his mother who bore and suckled him, stealing the last few dollars from her purse to finance his vices and self-destructive
addictions, he has killed Mother Earth. And even as she lays dying, he rapes
her for good measure. To conceal his crime, he then rapes and kills his brothers
and sisters as they lie in their beds and accuses everyone else in the neighborhood.
His fellow man, having committed the same heinous act or profited in some way from its consequences, will never judge
the criminal (himself) guilty of any wrongdoing-- and will not stop him. As all
fight for the last few gasps of the little air they've left, they speed up their own demise with air and life-sapping exchanges
of blame. All are guilty. (work-in-progress)
